Is it a bear? Is it a crane? It's chia-pet monster!
(I've got the name right, yes? You know those ceramic alfalfa sprouting animals... I had one, I think it was a pig).

So, here we go!
My first Gocco image.
I have already learnt that you should perhaps have a sheet of paper the same size as the pad... but strangely, when the image was perfectly lined up, it was kind of cold. So these are fairly lined up, but I like many others because they aren't. Plus, I like the imperfections... but that is me.
something is keeping my mind occupied...

As I think hard about "red" for Illustration Friday (actually, it is not such a hard topic, as I am always using red...but...) I decided to post the other two images that I have done for Jonathan Keeley. We are almost there with his CD cover. I have two plans today, to finish a "red" image, that I have been looking at since last friday (it is Ern Malley again for another project) and...
I received my GOCCO!
48 hours in the house, and I have an image planned. I just need to expose the screens and print. I might have time today to do this.
I need to update my portfolio site, I was trying to find something on there the other day to show someone, and even I had trouble finding stuff, it is a big, overcrowded mess (sorry VdB), but it is true.
start of a goodyear...

This year started with a bang once I got back from Canada.
I was asked by Jonathan Keeley to create a CD cover for his release The Hanged Man.
The two images above are images conjured up by his melancholic, but, strangely warm music. More about this as it transpires. Perhaps these images will change?
I also was accepted into the next edition of Carousel Magazine, so this made me very happy too!
I am organising myself for my very first spruiking of my wares soon.
I need to get out of this English teaching game that takes more time than the creation.
illustration friday: Super Hero

I am cheating a little here. This was my submission for Howiezine 06, which was titled "Superheroes". I feel like I haven't had time to breathe. So here it is.
I went to the Maison de la Culture du Japon à Paris yesterday (as well as Centre George Pompidou), to see the Katagami exhibition. It was beautiful. It gave me time out, but I rushed about all the same.
