From the Ground Up

Shot this the other night. More on that top secret mission once the job's gone to press.

Yeah, see the thing about that is...

Well, the client rejected the hand-lettered type that I created for their "Fun-a-palooza" event on the grounds that it was "too fun".


Almost Better

Stitches came out today! I had contemplated taking a photo of my thumb pre-stitches, but then thought that might be gross. More soon, including some photos from my weekend break to Ottawa last weekend.

A String of Bad Events

Well, it's been a shit week. Work has been insane, with me leaving the studio last night at 3 am. I have tendonitis in both my left bicef, and rotator cuff. I'll need physio. I also managed to seriously cut myself with an Xacto knife (think scalpel), and required five stitches for the newly-created flap in my thumb on Wednesday night.

And now? Scrawl's messed up, in a big big way. All the work from 2003 onwards seems to have disappeared somehow. Style in Progress, the latest update of over 30 images, is gone. The images are still there, but the database entry is gone.

I'll be repairing slowly. Yes, I mean both my thumb and Scrawl.

Toy Monkeys

One of my favourite illustrators, Gary Taxali, recently introduced a limited-edition Toy Monkey, which he's producing through his new company Chump Toys. Gorgeous stuff!

If you're in Toronto, Magic Pony premiered the toy a little while back, and will be getting more in stock soon. They've got some photos of the launch (accessible from the home page) on their site.

We Interrupt These Travel Photos...

The new job's actually great - I just couldn't resist a dramatically-shaded monkey.
