I Got a Gig!!
It almost seems as if I just landed in London and already, the office has put me to work. I knew that they were gonna give me projects that were a bit different from my daily duties back in L.A., but I had no idea that they had this in mind. The project involved me, a few buckets of paint, and an ice cream truck. Apparently the city is full of these crazy trucks and it's my job to give 'em a little Disney magic. I'll be the first to admit, them characters ain't no John Quinn or Jeff Shelly's. Heck, I'll even bet that they might be a tad bit off-model. What do you want from me? I never worked on these characters before so whaddya expect? Was Rome built in a day?? But how about that typography huh?? Yeah, that's what I'm talking about! The answer is yes kids, you bet your sweet ass that it was all 100% hand done!! I didn't even bust out a ruler or anything. I'm especially proud of that quote I came up with on the back. In fact, I'm already designing some undies with "Often Licked Never Beaten" plastered across the front....and back. I'll post pics and take orders as soon as I get them printed up!
p.s. I assure you, at some point I promise to post a legitimate entry...once I sober up.
p.s.2. With me gone, the filth factor at the L.A. office must be at an all-time low. Enjoy it while you can!!!
