I have been away, but not really. Just before TCAF I had been told by my doctor that I had a nasty case of tendonitis and carpal tunnel and that I need to stop drawing like a motherfucker. I punched her as hard as I could in the face, but it didn't even faze her since my arm wasn't working too shit-hot.
So, I took a month off from work and drawing. I travelled the land looking to help others with my unique brand of legs-only kung-fu and an ability to tie sexy knots. It was fulfilling in the sense that I came a lot, but home is where the heart is, so I am back.
While "off work" I still managed to do a lot of work, aided by photographs in place of my finely-tuned boring illustrations! Here's a brief list!
BAD ADVICE: POPULAR BY PROXY
BAD ADVICE: NO LETTERING
BAD ADVICE: THE POWER OF POSITIVE WHATEV
And now I'm back to illustrating!
As always, please send me your problems/questions/fantasies. I love helping others.
Also, Tear Jerk! My ongoing quest to acquaint myself with movies that make me cry! It's going well and I've been crying a lot! Here's the ones I've tackled so far!
TEAR JERK: MILK
TEAR JERK: ONCE
TEAR JERK: THE NOTEBOOK
TEAR JERK: THE IRON GIANT
ALSO! This was my fault.
I noticed the terrible photoshop job and tracked down the original stock photo. It has since spiralled out of control at work and is being linked all over the place, in both good places and BAD PLACES. I am the Woodward and Bernstein of photoshop now. Hooray! My favourite part that most people haven't noticed is the headline, "Learn to Swim ... It's worth a try." VERY INSPIRING, CITY OF TORONTO.
I am tired now. Time for nappy-nap.
