"Aristotle was not Belgian. The central message of Buddhism is not ‘Every man for himself.’ And the London Underground is not a political movement. Those are all mistakes, Otto. I looked them up. "
I’m disappointed there isn’t a bigger cult around this movie, which I really like.
This and Soapdish should have way bigger followings. Why does the cult-film-community-groupmind hate Kevin Kline? (I don’t like Soapdish that much really, it just seems to be "cult-y")
I never liked the weird fish-furry of "Wanda" on the poster. She doesn’t look like that in the movie (she’s white with black stripes… and not 6 feet tall with arms). Looks like a character from Fish Police.
Brandon Bird’s Law & Order art show was a huge success! Law & Order showrunner/L&O:CI co-creator/”brains of the operation” René Balcer even bought one of my prints. He bought every artpiece with Goren in it in the gallery.
Here’s a place to order prints of some of the pieces, including my Detectives Look for a Racist and Two Teens Disappear in a Museum, both printed on very nice watercolor paper & signed in an edition of 50 each.
Guess what? I’m in a gallery-type art show!
These Are Their Stories
(A Law & Order Art Show)
curated by Brandon Bird
July 24 – 30 at with a reception Wednesday July 28 at 8:00 pm
Gallery Meltdown, 7522 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90046.
I’ll be there in person and you can buy signed prints of my 2 prints in the show. I did a Special Victims Unit one and a Criminal Intent one.
I illustrated this CD a couple month’s back. It’s out now. There’s also illustrations on the inside and on the CD face not pictured here. Also, a standup act (which I did not illustrate, as it is audio)
I did an interview and a feature in Italian magazine “D.” Several illustrators redrew ads from clients. I don’t speak Italian the reasons why we did this were never all that clear to me. But, here it is (in Italian, natch).
Here’s the magazine itself with my illustrated interpretations of the ads sprinkled throughout. (150, 174, 182, 186, 232, 236 & 242)
I also posted them on my flickr account
I didn’t even realize this was out yet, but here it is. My first book cover illustration, in stores May 4, attached to some guy’s memoir.
Here’s the not quite final cover:
Your version will have the proper sub-credit line in there. You could order on Amazon, but really, you should support your local bookseller if you can
I made this
And then the next morning I found this while looking for an envelope
The tone of the text (and the exhibition title, really) is that Rembrandt Peale was a jerk who only cared about being famous, failed time and time again and blamed the audiences for being provincial. So judgmental, Smithsonian brochure writer!
He was just mad because his brother was sooooooo cute. With his pretty flowers and his two pair of glasses. XOXO!
I got my test swatches from Spoonflower, so I can now offer fabrics for sale!
(The dinosaur one came out a little too dark, so I have to modify the colors)
When I earn back the $11 I spent buying proofs, I’ll upload more different other designs. FOR YOU.
And another one, too:
You can’t buy it, though. I have to spend money to be a “seller.” Maybe later.
"Mindy Kaling is a writer, co-executive producer and actor on NBC’s The Office. She is also the founder of Pitchfork Media and plays ethnic percussion for Arcade Fire."
I only had three days to do this.
I didn’t have time/motivation to make a Christmas card this year. Luckily, it being the end of the Zeros, I instead give a brief retrospective of cards of the years past. (The ones I already have on the internet, anyway.)
2003. I lost this scarf immediately after making this card.
2006. This is actually Cakey’s Christmas card, but I made it.
Not actually a Christmas card, but an album you should buy
Merry Fishmas, everybody!
A lot of people want a Mad Men Illustrated calendar like the one I did last year. I can’t legally make that, so I made a set of calendar pages that you can assemble with pictures from this flickr set to make your own.
This download is JUST THE CALENDAR PAGES —no images. You can pick and choose from this set to make it on your own with your home printer.
