A sketchbook experiment with casein and pencil. The image originated from a New York Times T Magazine article entitled “São Paulo’s Concrete Jungle.” Click on it to view the sketch even larger than its original size of 6.5″ x 8.5″.
Here’s a page from a comic I’m working on at the moment about two brothers growing up in Serbia during WWII. Don’t hold your breath though- it might be a wee while before it finds way out into the paper world. A serbian newspaper called “Vesti” found out about the way my Serbian heritage has shaped my work and featured an article about me last week. The only problem is, I cant read it because I can’t read or write Serbian- doh.
Another illo for the Publisher’s Weekly “Soapbox” column. This installment was a funny editorial was written by Mike Reiss, who has been a writer for The Simpsons for nineteen years. In an effort to reach kids with a different message than he does on TV, Mike has published eight children’s books, and enjoys the freedom of being the sole storyteller. But he doesn’t do it for the money:
“To earn what I make as a TV writer, I’d have to publish a children’s book every four hours.”
Money isn’t everything though…but Homer Simpson has weighed in on this:
“Bart, with $10,000, we’d be millionaires! We could buy all kinds of useful things like…love!”
There’s been a growing number of creepy incidents at Walt Disney World. People have been smuggling in their loved ones’ remains and sprinkling the ashes on their favorite rides. It’s actually become a big problem. I’ve been enjoying taking more pics with my cell phone. This one is from a television ad for the theme park.
Yesterday I started creating my own letter type…till now, I only created from “A” to “F” but I also intent to create the numbers and symbols like “! @ # $”, somethings like this…
More new framed work for sale at my online shop. This here print illustrates a slavic female weather demon “Ala”- bad tempered monsters whose main purpose is to destroy crops. They are rumoured to eat children which they would gobble up with huge wooden spoons! A given ala may look like a black wind, a gigantic creature of indistinct form, an old lady or a bird like a raven or a crow. Eagles, however, are regarded as defenders against Ale, chasing them away from fields and thus preventing them from bringing hail clouds overhead. A 9.25″x9.25″” high quality laser print on 200gsm card presented in a white wooden frame (11.5″x11.5″x0.5″), signed and numbered on back of print, a limited edition of Ten prints… only $15.00. C’mon over and see if there’s any other prints that tickle your fancy…
This is a photo of a Ndebele traditional healer from the National Archives of Zimbabwe. When I was visiting there back in 1998 we visited the archives and were able to order reprints of old photos from their amazing catalog of images. We paid a small fee, filled out some paperwork and several months later this and a few other pictures surprised me when they showed up in my mailbox.
(Brooklyn, that is.) Why? Because only here could this exist nowhere near a McDonald’s.
