Dear Apple,

You said that the iTunes Music Store would open in Canada sometime in November. You've got 45 minutes.

20% off Christmas

I put together an illustration in about 20 minutes today. Although it has a significant lack of monkeys, it's still sort of fun. Really puts you in the Christmas spirit.

Pornorific! Sexlicious! Porntastic!

Those are just some of the words coined to describe the invitation for this weekend's festivites. So if you feel like having fun this weekend, drop by, say hi to my Evil Twin, and come dance the night away.

bashy bashy

I don't care if I have a 22" cinema display and a dual processor G5. Sometimes computers frustrate the hell out of me.

That's a poorly drawn cinema display, by the way.

+1337 Damage!

Having done some research into the aesthetic of Magic: The Gathering cards, I can safely say that I never ever want to become part of that particular subculture as the sheer visual atrocities committed would cause me to bleed from the eyes.

Coming up next...

My friend Matt and I were debating an interface decision, and finally decided that instead of a pulldown menu with a ridiculous number of items, users will just have to copy and paste certain things. The conversation alludes to what you'll be seeing in a couple of days...

augh. Augh. Augh! AUGH!

Why isn't work done yet? Isn't it Friday? GAH!

I particularly like the monkey on the far left who's shocked (denoted by the exclamation mark above his head) by the madness.

You Talkin' to Me?

Was using a Sharpie on laser-printer paper this morning which explains the contrast, but don't really know where the image came from.

On the Nuances of Retail Campaigns


Astonished, all the monkey could do was point in disbelief.

Vegas Type

Some hand-rendered type for you kids. I'm no John Downer though.

Concerted Apologies

I have an excuse. I've been exceptionally busy. So busy, in fact, that the monkeys haven't really been appearing on the pages of my sketchbook. So busy, that I haven't done any cool, personal design work. What have I been doing?

1) working long hours
2) going to very chi-chi awards ceremonies with the crew from Oxygen
3) post-ceremony drinking and eating with afore-mentioned crew
4) painting
5) installing electrical
6) spending $837.56 at IKEA
7) creating a rather ingenious suspension system to partition off Hannah's bedroom into a studio
8) painting
9) cleaning
10) transforming my bland, sloppily-painted beige bathroom into a luscious chocolate-brown and white designer's pleasure
11) installing fixtures into afore-mentionted bathroom
12) hanging freshly-painted cabinets
13) building IKEA furniture (bookcase and CD rack done, tomorrow my new bed)
14) finally getting my life together

And there you have it folks. I'll even be able to take photos of my apartment on Wednesday, when it's all done.

But just to reassure you, there will be monkeys soon. And, having been prompted by Hannah, will be filming more Dalek stop-motion movies soon. So you can all relax, because I know you were worried there.
