Pretend you^re in an Angry Mob!! @!#$?%~

And photograph yourself.

And send that photo to me please.

I’m finishing up an illustration and would like more photo references of unique people in an angry mob. So grab your nearest friend or two- or just you if you’re alone at the moment- and pretend you’re in an angry mob and send me your best shot! You may not end up looking exactly like you, but you’ll know you’re part of the scene. And what could be more fun on a Sunday afternoon than pretending to be in a mob and photographing yourself??

Here’s the piece I’m working on:

Shhhhhhh!

I’ve just finished a major illustration project and I actually have no pictures to post- or wait- maybe I can post just one.

Here it is:

This is one of several illustrations for a Jazz Christmas CD coming out around Christmas-time 2011. IT’S JUST AROUND THE CORNER!! While I cannot show the image I just finished- or the rest of the images until the release, they are mighty pretty. You’ll just have to trust me on this one. Heavily illustrated CD. Mighty pretty. Finally finished. More info in 3 months.

Whoa! First blog post EV-ah. Considering how non-verbal I am, this is quite the endeavor. And really, I’m sure people have better things to do than to read my ramblings. Instead, let me post some photos to entertain you, with a brief explanation.

Last week on LinkedIn, I accidentally friend-requested everyone I have ever emailed. Ever. Emailed. This had some varied repercussions. On the downside, I had inadvertently requested professional contact with people that I had long ago deleted from facebook, bought things from on craigslist, ex-boyfriends I swore I’d never speak to again, and people I generally just really didn’t want to request as a business contact. On the upside, I heard from some great clients that I hadn’t contacted in years. One of them, after receiving my email via LinkedIn, remembered that he had promised to mail me one of the toys he made. He had hired me several years ago to make illustrations for use on the packaging of these dinosaur toys. The large multi-paneled packaging ended up a small hang tag, but it’s nice anyway.

This tag is never coming off

hang tagI’m actually pretty pleased with how my illustration was used in this instance.
