illustration friday : tattoo
Saturday, March 11, 2006, 10:27 PM - Vegan/Vegetarian, Art/Design, Illustration, Illustration Friday
I looked at a few of the earlier Illustration Friday submissions and was disappointed to see photos of tattoos... I had an idea in my head about an animal with tattoos and piercing sporting some type of vegetarian / vegan slogan (because supposedly, according to the press, we are those types of people... oh and Goths, yeah right, not admitting to anything).
So I ended up finally doing an illustration I had pencilled in vaguely, but he was given some tribal-type tattoos instead of being like my "beautiful on the inside" monkey. He is still in the process of drying in the photo...
humans as your favourite meal
Tuesday, March 7, 2006, 05:04 PM - Vegan/Vegetarian, Damn CarniesI have been thinking about this topic for a few day after someone on the Vegan Freak Forums pointed out Hufu... the description freaks me out let alone putting it into my mouth. Who in the hell did they ask to do the tests?! Their friendly, local cannibal?
Then we have on the other hand some come-uppance about humans as meals. Pas mal!
illustration friday : insect

This is kind of old, I am coping out this week. This is one of the Whirlwind Stock Sample Cards I did in 2003, how time flies!
No logo on it, but there are insects!
It was a part of a 20 piece set of cards, or is a part, not sure if they still use them, that fitted together to make one big, fat, chaotic image, things crossing over into other cards.
I am going to Paris this weekend to go to a birthday party of sorts, I have just woken at 3:55am exactly, have been reading The Chronicals of Narnia (as I never read them all when I was a child), and hoping I don't pass out on the lounge like I did last time I went to one of their parties. Note, it was almost 1am and they were just getting to the dessert, and we had had a really big day that day, drove to Paris, it was HOT, the car broke down, we fixed it, we wandered around Paris for hours, in the heat, just wanting to rest... I sound like a prime whinger!
So today it is supposedly going to snow a bit more lowest of -2°C, I am going to a meeting for the Ateliers d'Edition Populaires (Screen printing workshop), then off to Paris to pick up my Man, who I haven't seen for a week. I think I flew with him, sometimes that happens with me, I fly with the people who are flying: meaning, I don't sleep.
I don't think most Frogs went to work or school yesterday, it was very quiet on the roads, it was snowing, but honestly, if it was really bad, as I don't have the habit (I am sure that is French translated back into English) of driving in snow or ice, I WOULDN'T HAVE DRIVEN EITHER!
I swear the Frogs will take a day off every chance they get.
day five: illustration friday : tea

Here is my fifth day of creation (every day... ummm ehmm), and I did actually create my little mouse in the past hour or so, so, it is a NEW image. So I did create today.
I have one little thing to say which is going to sound obnoxious, but I don't care.
As I try really hard not to eat cheese/consume dairy etc; when I was riding on the métro this lunchtime, it would seem it was before people had eaten, but the whole carriage smelled like fermenting cheese and dairy, and I know it was probably because people were hungry, but it was such a repulsive smell, I spent the whole time with my face buried in my scarf. AND no, the smell wasn't coming from me. I have noticed that my breath, as I get hungry, isn't as bad as a cheese eater.
Something to think about.
day three & four : slackness

Ok, I know what I said, but I got all involved with painting the bathroom yesterday, the final coat and all that, and doing odd stuff for the man, like standing in the post office, which is always fun here in France.
So above is the first offering for today, and there will be a second, I promise. (Perhaps I shouldn't be promising anything, especially to dead air?).
