I really did… and I pretty much wear exactly the same stuff now 🙂
The market day was pretty successful with five prints sold and one traded for some sweet handmade finery from the lovely Jennalyce. I also picked up an awesome owl wall-art from my good friend Emma from Alida Designs.
Getting closer to that 365… feeling like I’ve past the point where my illustrations are improving though, becoming quite over the whole process of having to draw something every day. Then again, I’m not sure I want to stop once I reach the 365th illustration. I guess I’ll see what happens!
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!
