Umbrella Sailing

When I was a kid, I always imagined I could turn an umbrella upside-down and sail on the ocean inside it as a boat. I logically thought, if I'm a really small child, the umbrella would be able to hold my weight and not sink or capsize.

Just a personal illustration so I don't go crazy that the only time I'm really drawing is at work. Always make artwork for yourself from time-to-time to keep you satisfied, I always say!

Status Foe

Back in December, while moving, I did an illustration for Bitch Magazine, regarding an article about people who lurk on Facebook. There's a study out that says people who tend to post less information about their own lives on Facebook will secretly look at other peoples' profiles a lot more. They feel embarrassed about their own shortcomings, or feel that they haven't gotten where they want in life versus their friends who have graduated, gotten married, are having children, visiting amazing vacation spots, and so on (which is all constantly being posted on Facebook's Feed). Pretty interesting stuff!

Tweet tweet

Long time since I posted! There's good reason for that: I finally got my belongings (after a 2 week delay) and set up my studio in my new apartment. For the last 2.5 months, I was working full-time for Serious Business (most famous for 'Friends for Sale' on Facebook). Within that short time, I was incredibly happy to work with extremely talented, fun-loving individuals. Never have I literally jumped out of bed, EXCITED to begin a work day before that company.

Needless to say, we've all been acquired by a gi-normous company of which you will instantly recognize and can read up on the result here.

...Not sure how I feel about working for such a large corporate company but lets give it time, shall we?

In the meantime, here's to Twitter. I don't post with it nor do I follow anyone's tweets but it was a fun image in my mind. My buddy Ra is depicted as he was one of the first people I knew to actively use it. It's pretty incredible how social applications have dominated the world. You see a tiny blue bird or an 'f' for facebook on nearly every advertisement, the news, anywhere. Enjoy!
