Earmint gallery

Original drawing by Kaitlin K
A while back I  was contacted by Earmint (a cool chicago hip hop musician type person) to contribute to a CD cover art project he was planning.

A whole bunch of artists and illustrators were asked to essentially 'colour in' in any way they liked a line drawing of the man himself
just happened to grab my own illustration totally accidently...
The results are now online at www.earmint-gallery.com and are available to download along side his new album.
It's cool to see how each person had made the image their own. 

Heres just a small selection from the site:
Top row: Allan Sanders, Catherine LePage, Nick Deakin
2nd row: Jordy Van Den Nieuwendijk, Sarajo Frieden, Natty Kocsis
3rd row:  Eyeport, Tommy Kane, Me
Bottom row: Bubi Au Yeung, Logan Bay, Andreas Karaoulanis
Draw - The easy way!

it's uncanny  that I saw Lou Brooks' gallery post  right on the very same day that I was confinced that all my own drawing worries were over for good.

I first saw this ad way back in the autumn of '56 and sure it may have taken some 51 years for my purchase to arrive, ...but hey what's a half a century...when I can now design clothes, copy comic heroes*, draw pets, family, animals - ALL The EASY WAY!


*excluding all copyrighted characters and material for commercial and non commercial work.
From Popular Science Magazine 1956 Oil Burner Servicing is a trade I'm considering as a side line.
box looks a bit tatty... royal mail really are getting worse
So here it is, in the flesh: the Magic Image Projector
I'm excited. If only I had a cat or a dog, or woman in a fancy hat.
oh. I have to say that I'm a little disappointed... whats the black paper for... is this it??
Either I'm missing a bit or it's just not OS X compliant

I wonder how long it will take for a refund?

"How to be healthy at work"
I've been quite busy over the last few weeks so, other than a few days in Dublin (and tickets to a cool REM gig), there's been not much chance for any summer holiday and/or relaxation yet. 

I'm going to be Toronto for a few days next month so will appreciate any tips or recommendations from drawgers and non-drawgers alike.  Hopefully I'll get the chance to meet up with Drawger Leighton while I'm there.

In the meantime, heres a few work-related illustrations I've done recently for the office hours section of The Guardian...
"how to have a strop" The infamous finger at mouth makes a comeback...
"How to survive your first day"

I know it's a question you're asking yourself so here's a little quiz  courtesy of Readers Digest (c.1950) to help boost your ego.
I won't tell you my score, but let's just say there was no surprise second count.  Damn.  I think question 13 could have been the deal breaker ...
