Again I was drawing passerby from my usual picture window at the cafe yesterday.
When I was little, every so often my father would take us for a drive around the island. This was an all-day affair, where we’d see what we could see and eat what we could eat all over O’ahu. Mahi Plate Lunch via Go Backpacking I loved spotting the lunch wagons parked along the Honolulu waterfront, hoping to feast on an onolicious plate lunch with beef stew, teriyaki, or breaded mahimahi. No matter what you ordered, you always got two scoops of rice and macaroni salad. But usually we’d drive right on by because it wasn’t lunch time yet. This only intensified my fascination with lunch wagons: I thought it would be so cool to cook on a little stove in a truck and wait on people through the window on the side. I don’t know exactly when people in Hawai’i started calling lunch wagons, “food trucks.” But they’re still a big part of the local scene, enticing the always hungry on side streets and main streets with longstanding island favori
Today’s daily character upload (the septultimate!) is another footnote from the 20th century: I give you 8-bit video game legend BUSINESS PRAWWWWWN. Business Prawn is late for an important client meeting, and needs your help to race to the office — but watch out for those pesky Corporate Clams, who’ll resort to underhanded methods to stop you from arriving and winning that bid! Another new character tomorrow.
I am currently working on piece that my cousin has ordered. I’ve already done the outline (shown on the previous post). But now, I am using a shading technique to make the faces appear realistic. Please let me know what you think about it so far. I could really use the feedback! Thanks for reading!
Friend or foe? Billy took a step back, and the tall man, as if mimicking him, stepped forward. It smiled at him, the tiny rows of sharp, serrated teeth glinted in the sunlight. His shadow engulfed Billy, so much so that everything the shadow fell on grew hushed and cowering. He was so.. tall. He held out his finger to Billy and once again flashed a smile. In his hand was a flower. It was delicious. Illustration Friday – Tension
I reckon I am ready to create some beautiful page borders for a book. I’ve got the basic principles of knotting and weaving things together. This is going to be fun. The other exciting thing I learned is that an ebook can have pictures in it – they just need to be zipped up before uploading to an Amazon Kindle book. So I will focus on making an ebook next, which brings the price down for you guys, and allows more of the book price to come to the artist/author in royalties. (Yup, that’s me!) The trick part is whether the download size is a problem for you, and how well the ebook prints on your printer at home. There’s a bit of exploring and discovering to be done, and I’m looking forward to it! (I’m having fun with the ascii art from Jim at the RFB… can you tell?)
The Doctor surprises Clara with his new haircut. “It’s a buzzcut. Buzzcuts are cool!” This is one of the random phrases which popped into my head when I first got a glimpse of Matt Smith‘s new haircut when reading about his attendance to the 2013 George Foster Peabody Awards on Monday night (May 20) in New York City, where along side Jenna-Louise Coleman, and show runner Steven “The Moff” Moffat, were being awarded with the special Institutional Peabody Award for Doctor Who‘s longevity and “evolving with technology and the times like nothing else in the known television universe.” But going back to Matt’s new hairdo, is it because The Doctor has gotten tired of his Floppy locks? Does he miss what he had going on in his previous 9th incarnation? Well truth be told, Mr. Smith has actually landed a lead role on a movie called, “How to Catch a Monster”, a writing-directing debut by Ryan Gosling. While details about Matt’s role is still
Hello! Today I am posting a lot of the Steam Powered Giraffe fanart I have created in the past couple months! Steam Powered Giraffe is a band from San Diego, that I have recently discovered and fallen in love with their music and whole look. They dress and act as vintage robots, with whole backstories and histories. They put a lot of effort into creating their characters, and are exquisitely created with face paint, costumes, and mime work. To see more of them check out their website and youtube. I will post a description beneath each piece of artwork. Thank you for looking! Leave a comment with your thoughts!

This blog has been delayed for too long! I’ve been busy with my rehearsals for the ‘Ticket to Write’ festival. I’m playing Ringo Starr. If you’re in Liverpool in July, come and check it out! Noire have been creating some exclusive content for the debut magazine from ‘Bleach Collective‘ scheduled to hit the streets of Merseyside and Manchester in June. None of that work will appear on our Facebook wall, or this blog, so make sure you pick up a copy if you can! There is of course, still some artwork to show you. Otherwise, we wouldn’t be doing our job! Oh yeah, by the way, Gemma has gone on an art spree. Gemma Murney: As you can quite clearly see, this is Angelina Jolie. That rhymed, but that’s besides the point. This is fantastic, and has had some very good feedback. Possibly Gemma’s best piece to date? Ash from Evil Dead. Zombie brains and gore, for your viewing pleasure. Mmm. Y
