As of today, I’ve got three of these now. My ultimate goal is to create one for every major city I’ve been to (or have connected with in some sort of way); however, that is a lot of cities, so this may be an ongoing, years in the making type series. One at a time…one at a time. Also, I’m always adding things to the shop, so check it out http://society6.com/sketchbookjack #metropolis #illustrationFriday
I’ve you haven’t found it already, please check out the Kickstarter Campaign to get “The Island and the Plough”, AND “Captain and Crow’s ABCs” AND an interactive iPad ebook App version of “The Island and the Plough” printed and in your hands! This is also your chance to get custom art work on the cheap! You can get a mugshot of yourself in the style of the The Daily Mobster, or you can get a one of a kind letter print in the style of “Captain and Crow’s ABCs” OR you could even get your paws on some of the original art from one of the books! So head on over or share with your friends and family. http://kck.st/1kDaMZ6
Here is a sneak peak of my latest book project. I am working on finding an agent and pitching around “The Island and the Plough” but I am continuing to build up other projects, because there are plenty more to come.
Here we have “Captain and Crow’s ABCs”. The Captain finds a smart Crow who challenges him to to a test. First he is asked if he knows his ABCs, to which the Captain replies “ARR!” only to be followed by asking what his favorite letter is. Of course, it is R. The crow challenges him to name a word for every letter in the alphabet that has an R sound in it. Here, the Captain is almost stumped by the letter I, and much confusion arises between I, eye and aye.
Captain is almost stumped with I, but then he finds a word that has an ARRRRR in it.
My copies of Ultraswing‘s “Jouez” have arrived; they look so great printed! There is always something pretty great about seeing work printed as it has such a different feel that being digitally onscreen. They have a tactile substance that I love. The music is great too, so if you like gypsy jazz in the style of Django Reinhardt be sure to check out Ultraswing; they have worked really hard to putting this album together and I listened to it on my drive up to the north valley this weekend and the tracks are wonderful. You can have a look at flat, larger versions of the covers from an older post here.
