Well it’s 6 AM and I got three out of like, 60 Gijinka requests done, thank you everyone who sent me suggestions I may very well do more the next time I have a sleepless night because it was a blast. <3 uvu
so anna and i occasionally toss around ideas for an extremely ridiculous au in which jack atlas is a fashion designer/occasional model, when the actual models are NOT DISPLAYING HIS OUTFITS TO BEST ADVANTAGE
I had the great pleasure to work on the very challenging cover for yesterday’s New York Times Book Review. At this 10th year mark of Hurricane Katrina, the review dedicates itself to books and shorts about the lives in New Orleans after the disaster.
At first, I wanted to depict the social and racial inequalities that has been exposed by the water line which is still haunting the recovery. But in the end we decided to show more defiance/perseverance/celebration after the waters receded.
After I came up with new sketch V.2, I realized I really miss the mix-match perspectives in my original V.1 sketch, hence the V.3 which was picked for the final.
NEW SHIRT DESIGN UP ON REDBUBBLE! I’ve wanted this shirt for a while and even had the concept art ready two sketchbooks ago, but finally got around to actually create it.
Sometimes, you look around at the rubble surrounding you, the
mess on your desk, the coffee you just spilled all over your shirt, the
hellbeasts that escaped from the dark portals that appear every time
you sneeze … and you have to face it. You’re a disaster. Some might try
to change this, but if you, like me, are a lost cause, might as well
show it with pride. This t-shirt, adorned a drawing of a tiny, beautiful
bird made entirely of anger who is still bitter over not having been
equipped with a flamethrower from the hands Mother Nature, serve as both
a fashion statement and a fair warning to your surroundings.
Earnings go to your local neighbourhood disaster aka. me
To all my fellow disasters: Face it, and wear it with pride! I’m not just saying this as a sales pitch, you can, do that, without the shirt. But if you DO want the shirt, then you can get it HERE!
Also available as notebooks and other stationery. Without the watermark, of course.
