I thought about doing a NYE inspired Panic but really had nothing decent to draw, so I drew some hairstyles from two of the worst decades of fashion… Play safe tonight people and good luck for 2012.
I’ve just got back home after doing the Kingston S.E. Short Course Triathlon. Nothing like a swim, ride and run to make you feel like you alive, and then dead, and then alive again, then in need of an ambulance and finally, alive again. Did the 500m swim, 13.3km bike and 3.6km run in 58 minutes and 45 seconds. I am really the worst swimmer in history and every triathlon I do I get very panicky half way through the swim and my stroke goes to the dogs/sharks. But I really enjoying doing them so the more I do the better I’ll get!
So today’s image was actually done late last night while I was in my motel room trying to get to sleep in preparation for the race! Once again, no wacom board this time so it’s all just bezier-pen tool. Go easy on it, it’s not my best! I’m continuing the avian theme with CHICKEN DISCO… he likes to disco. A lot.
There comes a time in any young artist’s life where he embarks on the road of self discovery and … *pfft* yeah, whatever! Today’s post is a self-portrait. Just an illustration of me by me.
Just to note:
• The fills in-between the hair outlines were handled with Illustrator Live Paint… lazy but necessary when coming off of a few drinks the night before
This illustration was done on the 29th January 2011. It was completed in 14 minutes.
The WristWatch® Rock Clock is an Australian Precision timepiece and disco-resistant to 40 feet.
I did this drawing on Satuday, 22nd January 2011. It took 19 minutes to complete
I wanted to do something that would kick ass as a t-shirt and I wanted to feature a very hairy arm in some way. If you would like to purchase this image as a t-shirt, please email me and if I get enough interested I may consider thinking about feigning interest in producing t-shirts. But seriously, I really dig the way the word Rock looks when written in my style of script and started off with just that word. After a little while of playing around with a few different options of how the word could look I got the feeling just one single word might look a bit *meh*. Some clever wordplay later, I came up with “Time to Rock” which in a short while generated the same *meh* feeling… and at that very moment, for some unknown reason I looked at my long, pasty, hairy arms and wondered why I didn’t own a wristwatch…
Whenever Im on the phone with someone and they ask me if I have time to do anything or want to make an appointment and give me a specific time (or I to them) I look at my wrist like I have a watch on, even though I have never really worn a watch for most of my adult life… its weird and I’ve done it in front of people I’ve been with and they have LOL’d… lots
Anyway, yadda yadda yadda, Wrist watch, rock clock… you see how I made the connection!
