Occupy Wallstreet



Some young fiery kid on the subway this morning felt "compelled" to bust my eardrums and yell his outrage over what had happened to the protesters at Zucotti Park (they were ousted by the NYPD). I, in response, felt compelled to make a poster. Here are some rough ideas. Nevermind the inelegant language. For some nice OccWall posters, visit Occuprint.

The poster that is slowly taking over my life...


...and here's a sliver of it. Still working on it - the names involved are Yale U. faculty and artists.

Flora poquito

An ornament sketch based on Mexican tile patterns. I asked a friend to translate the title of this post into Spanish for me. I hope it says 'little flower.' I hope.

Squat



Heey, so I'm finally settled in here in Brooklyn, NYC. Yay. Here are two graphics I did when I was bored. 'Whites' is a pretty funny BBC comedy about chefs, starring some actors I've never watched before. A Power Squat is...apparently...when a bird is about to take a crap. For some reason, I find the idea of a squatting bird hilarious.

cute


 Playing around. A friend and I fake-started a band called the Spooning Bananas. Currently in the throes of a harrowing move to NYC!

Political cartoon?

Ugh, wake me up when this debt ceiling thing is over. I made the near-fatal mistake of watching 24 hour cable news... six bored, angry, blacked-out days later Don Lemon says 'CNN is devoting ALL of its resources to this story', and I lose it. There's now a crack in my remote and a chip in the wall behind the television. No more cable news for me. Ever. I have never been so enthralled by something so futile and ultimately pointless as this 'debate'. That is, since Casey Anthony.

A Mexican Summer

Today, designed some cards with Mexican-tile-inspired medallions and patterns. I was agonizing over what colors to use, until I realized an even combination of blue, yellow, ochre, and natural green, with a little terra cotta red, is all I need to hit the right note. For the cards, I'm thinking about varying the size of the medallion dramatically from card to card to keep its repetition fresh.
