Five Stars

Turns out I’m not as good with spray paint as I’d hoped. At least on small scale (8″x8″-ish). So, for now, I’ve overlayed my illustrator MacArthur piece in Photoshop. I think the faux corrugated metal turned out okay, though. If only I could get all this olive drab paint off my face…

Have a great weekend, everyone!

A Spot of Tea

So… don’t tell anybody, but… just between you and me… I think tea is kinda for the birds. Coke me, bro!

Dennis Reynolds: “Your voice needs to come off as elegant as your clothing… okay? So… try this, ‘would you like a spot of tea’? You, ‘yeeeEEEeeesssSSSss’!”

Mac McDonald: “Would you like a spot of tea? YeeEEeessSSss!”

Dennis Reynolds: “Draw it out more.”

Mac McDonald: “Draw it out more than that? More like… YeeeEEEeeesssSSSsss!”

Fujiyama

Here’s more proof I’d love to visit Japan.

Hopefully it’s not also proof I need a better translation of ‘fujiyama’.

This could get embarrassing.

Speaking of mountains… (for all you  illustrators using digital tablets) would you mind sharing what you use and any other preferences/tips/etc? I’ve never tried one… sounds… nice?

A Pause…

This month Annabelle and I will be moving to a new apartment.  I’m very excited to have an actual bedroom again (as well as space to work on the random art project) – it’s a very nice place in a very nice area. On the other hand… it’s ‘moving’!  *dun dun dun*

With all this activity, my commenting will be hit and miss for a while. I considered scheduling posts, but I decided against that (because if I’m not  available to visit… what’s the point, really?). Besides, you have all earned a bit of a break.

If I have a moment I’ll try stop by everyone’s sites to say hello. Still, please forgive me if it takes a while to get a schedule reestablished… I’m a bit slow, you know.

Freight

I haven’t posted vector stuff here before (so I might as well start way back in the archives). This was drawn the loooong way (for a slow guy like me, anyway)… with Illustrator’s pen, pencil and shape tools… no filters or live trace. So… there’s that.

These tracks were located behind a renovated depot that housed an architectural firm I once worked for (they designed the building on the left). I could just glance out the window and see trains rolling by… not too shabby, eh?

Milton Waddams: “…and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were merry, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn’t bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it’s not okay…”
