The flat surrenders to the Gocco monster!
This is the start of my Howiezine "Robots" submission, (plus extras for me to play with at a later date). It will have a Gocco base but some hand painting as well. I am happy with it so far, I think it might have been the reason I didn't sleep too well last night. Too excited or something.
Apart from that I am creating, and have almost finished my Ern Malley illustrations for my screen printed book. I was a busy bee in those terms on the weekend.
bit of subversion

So, today I am waiting for the colour printer to print my enormous file, and there is a Japanese Design magazine sitting there, from 2005. I see these strange looking Japanese men in their meat propaganda T-shirts and a girl with a cap on that say "killer"... I fucking hope they are joking.
As I can't read Japanese, I can't tell... but something tells me they are... I hope. So I whipped over to the other side of the room, scanned the relevant pages, just so I could share.
Yep, I am going to REALLY swear in this post instead of pretending as I normally do (because, if the truth be known, I swear like a sailor if you let me)... so I have made my own subversive versions of the above comics:
I couldn't help it I'm sorry.
Someone want to tell me if they are joking?

So this is an illustration I did for a campaign we are running here at Décathon. It was a bit quick and dirty (it took me about 20 minutes to whip it up), but everyone seems to be happy with it. Note, i got on this bus this morning, and it seems it is a "bon idée"... but I was in the bus with one of my collegues and that was it. I asked the driver how many people in general get on the bus at a time... two. Pitiful. The French like their cars too much.
More internet fun... the things you find!

So this evening, I found the above... I was in one of their email newsletters Lost at Eminor a long time ago. They have a google map with things on it (which is what I was looking at), but I'm not on it.Tant pis les enfants.
have you ever seen anything as strange as this?

My man was watching this this morning (it was in one of his newsgroups that he reads every morning; all day...), and personally, I haven't seen anything as strange as this since that Japanese game show with the people who put themselves through forms of disgusting torture to win... something I guess. The Japanese are crazy! I find it endearing, but super strange all at the same time.
