The Gocco saga continues...

This is the next image that has gone on the Howiezine page, but, as a Gocco screen is a Gocco screen and I like to abuse it, I printed a few more of my own. I think, in fact, this screen will be abused a tiny bit longer today. We now have Gocco printed envelopes and everything floating around the house.
We watched Fur (An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus) last night, I really liked it, it was visually beautiful and intriguing in how it unfolded.
the post has finally arrived!

It took the French three months to deliver these two parcels I got today.
I had actually given up hope. But no, I shouldn't have.
Top are obviously a stash of Jonathan Keeley's The Hanged Man , that I did the illustration and layout for. And the other is two bags of very palatable ume candies from Japan... the outer part tastes a little like cinnamon, and it balances the salty plum on the inside. Who would have thought!
...back to the Gocco.
howiezine robots in progress

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.
