Digital Illustration

Digital illustration for use on a website (in progress) for a photo-blog for Amy. Was rejected outright for being too much like what you'd see on a "chick blog". Jeez. Clients. I think she was just mad because I made her look fat. Also I guess it does kinda look like she's on a therapist's couch, rather than the intended "floating on a li-lo." Also what is up with that right leg.

Munchscronch- Illustration Fighting

We've revamped the Munchscronch website. It's slightly prettier now.

For those not familiar, an excerpt from the website's About page:

Munchscronch exists as a place for loosely organized weekly illustration challenges, intended as an outlet for unfocused, meandering creative impulses and because illustrating is fun etc. Each week on Thursday (GMT+13) there will be a new theme. You (the artist) will then have an entire week to submit to us a creation according to this theme, and then everybody will clap their hands and vote on submissions and give you high-fives and stuff.

In other words, the Munchscronch website was created, along with some other design graduates, as totally just another way to help legitimize spending my time drawing dumb stuff on a weekly basis. See also: Moonbeard. Wordpress knowledge pretty much exclusively thanks to Mulliss.

sad thing in a field 023

Sunday, August 14, 2011


I've moved cities, from Chch to Welly- only semi quake-related. So that's why this blog and my website have been conspicuously lacking updates of late. Anyway, I went to all the effort of getting our cat up here and he takes off as soon as he gets access to the outside world. Just watched Memories of Murder, a superb Korean detective film set in 1986 from the director of the also-excellent The Host and Mother. I'm now pretty convinced my cat was the victim of some sort of serial cat-murderer, though I'm conveniently omitting the sexual aspects of the film's murders from my cat-murderer hypothesis. I think I just don't want to believe. The film is based on a true story, you know.

The thumbs in the picture are drawn pretty accurate. He's a polydactyl cat, so if you see a cat hitch-hiking then pick him up and bring him to me. Looking at the poster now, I think it's pretty odd that I used a red pen to highlight the thumbs and underline some details but neglected to draw on his red collar. Yeah, that's pretty odd.
