Döner flamingo

without comments

Got myself a döner kebab on the way home from the pub last night. With the shred of dignity that I had left, I used a plate. I scoffed it down, dripping the juice all over the plate, watched some Seinfeld, and fell asleep. When I got up this morning, I saw that the red cabbage-y stained drips of kebab juice had made a picture of a flamingo.

Minipops app: new price

with 2 comments

If you’ve not got it yet, we’ve reduced the price of the Minipops app for the iPhone/iPod touch for Christmas. You’ve probably already spend a crapload of money on stuff for other people, so why not break out 59 pence (99 US cents, 79 euro cents) for yourself? That works out at 0.06 pence per Minipop. Perfect. Rubbish salesman spiel over.

Senator Joe Lieberman

I don’t really bother doing caricatures much. Never something I’ve felt particularly good at, but this self-important tosspot from Connecticut has got a face like a melting ventriloquist puppet, and it’s ripe for the caricaturing. There’s something missing in the drawing, something not quite right. I think he may be smiling a tiny bit too much, and there’s something about the eyes that isn’t right. Still, it was fun to draw.

The price of eggs

with one comment

I was doing a bit of sorting out today; sorting the things that were still in boxes since moving into my new place. I found a bunch of old concert tickets. Here’s the first concert I ever went to (if you discount family trips to see the Spinners – the British folk group not the Detroit soul group – in Lincoln; and Showaddywaddy and the Nolans at the Coliseum in St. Austell). Fourteen quid seemed expensive for a sixteen year old in 1987. Still, also on the bill that day were the Pretenders, the Mission, and the Fall. Tickets used to look so much nicer without the barcode and generic Ticketmaster feel…

A drawing in ARTnews

without comments

In the December issue of ARTnews magazine, there’s a piece about art made on iPhones. They’ve included one of my drawings in there; a drawing done in the waiting room in the emergency room at Skagit Valley Hospital in Mount Vernon, Wa. while my (not-quite-yet-ex) wife and I were waiting for her brother’s kid to get checked out after falling down. Funny what details you can remember; but I know that there were no seats near the TV, and I couldn’t see the game he was watching even though I really wanted to see it (Puerto Rico vs. USA in the World Baseball Classic), so I drew him instead. Here’s a pdf of the page.
