Random Illustration Tuesday - Mandi Punch

mandi told an excellent story on Buzz that ended with "The rest of the kids needed a punch and a shower."

My brother, Dave responded with "For random illustration Tuesday, I'd like to see Mandi punching a 5-yr old into the shower." So here you go. If it looks very rushed, its because I had very little time to day to do it.

Animal Logo Wednesday - Squid

Deep water squid have the greatest known penis length relative to body size of all mobile animals. When its erect, it can be as big as their whole mantle, head and arms combined. I forgot to draw that.

Random Illustration Tuesday - Snake in a Restaurant

"A snake, sitting in a fancy french restaurant, has just finished eating an elephant whole. the way you can tell he ate an elephant is because of the shape of the elephant in his body. then maybe a waiter asks him if he saved room for desert." Submitted by M. Petersen.

Listen, this is very borderline, since it's really a cartoon that makes sense. Mark, you've been warned.

Lesson for Today

Sometimes I get frustrated with clients. Were any of you aware of this? Like if a client says "Must show heavy-set, or chunky, gay male character(s) in every logo concept." That's the reason I started Random Illustration Tuesday: to have a little fun doing what I do every day: draw weird things. Sometimes it gets to me, though, and I want to punch people in the crotch.

But then sometimes (seldom) I get feedback like this:
"I would like to acknowledge the designer for this project! Splendid job on the airplane! I love it! The designer transformed my vision into a reality! Please tell the designer I said Many Thanks!"

And I get to thinking. Specifically, about Batman. If I used my punching power on clients instead of my artistic skills, I would be like Batman using his artistic skills on the criminal elements of Gotham instead of his awesome punching skills.

The lesson here is, I should be wise and use what I have to deal with what I gots.

Hi, I'm Paul Browning.

I was interviewed yesterday for our company email. I just wish they had used my drivers license picture instead of taking a new one.
