This project was done for Telus Spark here in Calgary. The girl illustration is made to look like it’s stencilled on a cement wall, the undies are actually stencilled on wood. The Ears drawing is drawn in Photoshop and output to wood. After drawing fourteen ears, I can now draw ears like a boss.
Recently completed illustration and design. The book is about these two kids living in a small valley town. With the exception of the small rough drawing, everything was done in Photoshop. It’s weird, I hate using the computer when coming up with ideas or roughs, it just doesn’t feel right. But it fits in after that stage.
I found this joke about ten years ago, not sure who to attribute it to, but I thought it was appropriate today.
Once upon a time, in a village, a man appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each. The villagers, seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest and started catching them. The man bought thousands at $10 and, as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their effort.
This is an oldie but a goodie, author unknown. Some of it is still relevant today.
Living in the 2000s
You know you’re living in the OO’s when:
1. You have 5 passwords, but can only remember one.
2. You haven’t played solitaire with real cards in years.
3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of three.
4. You e-mail your buddy who works at the desk next to you. (more…)
2017 doesn’t have much to live up to. But it’s got to be better than 2016.
