The Western Black Rhinoceros was declared extinct this week 🙁 All I could do to say goodbye was make some sketches…
Then I went on to sketch some other animals that have been in my dreams of late: a bear and an anteater.
I just got my “business” cards from Moo.com and I really wanted to show them off!
A couple of months ago I unexpectedly won a 50 rounded-edge cards pack in a mini-contest with Moo, and since they allow up to 50 different designs on the back of the cards, I decided to have a blast! Each card showcases a single icon of mine from my latest and favorite sets. The box is a chocolate tin I’d bought in Bristol and kept specially for this – it’s too tight for regular cards, but JUST right for rounded edges!
I made this for Des images pour le Japon, an initiative collecting art that will be sold and collected into a book, the benefits of which will help tsunami victims in Japan.
Some time ago the representative of Skullcandy Levant asked me if I’d like to customize a docking station for a promotional contest. I was happy to, this was a fun new challenge and I immediately thought of MiniFu as fitting the Skullcandy style, in my mind.
The graphic at the top was the teaser, and below it is the real thing.
It took several attempts (good thing I had 4 defunct Pipes to experiment on) but eventually I hit upon a way to get these extremely minute figures onto the pipe. I used craft paint made for cold painting on ceramic, that also works well on metal. Only paint thinner takes it off!
