These were candidates in an online competition for the world’s greatest joke.
A guy is sitting at home when he hears a knock at the door. He opens the door and sees a snail on the porch. He picks up the snail and throws it as far as he can. Three years later there’s a knock on the door. He opens it and sees the same snail. The snail says: ‘What the hell was that all about?’
Three guys stranded on a desert island find a magic lantern containing a genie, who grants them each one wish. The first guy wishes he was off the island and back home. The second guy wishes the same. The third guy says: ‘I’m lonely. I wish my friends were back here.
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.
