This cool matrix by artist Jaaklo Seppala (via The Visual News) shows what different cartoon characters would look like drawn by other cartoonists, however he forgot to include the Land of Le Beef, so I took the liberty of adding an additional column on the far right.
I host a weekly illustration class with students at a school in Hong Kong, and last week I had the brilliant idea doing a class inspired by the work of Javier Perez. Basically we just grabbed a bunch of random stuff and turned them into other random stuff. Here's some of their pieces:
I recently watched a video about a cat in Ireland that adopted three baby ducklings alongside her own litter of kittens. I happen to be a BIG fan of unlikely animal friendships (as is evident from this previous post of mine), and I thought this would make for a perfect Mother's Day illustration.
This one is dedicated to my mom, who as far as I know has never adopted any ducks, but is a beautiful and fantastic mother nonetheless.
You might remember that I recently did two small murals at a preschool in Hong Kong ( one of Woodland Pre-School's 10 locations in the city). Well those murals turned out so awesome, that Woodland insisted that I adorn the walls of their newest, most spectacular school yet - the Montessori Academy on Caine Road.
In keeping with the woodland theme, we decided to go with a forest motif for this mural. So once again I picked up my pencil, and went about designing what would soon become the modern version of Raphael's School of Athens. I could go into great detail about the planning, process, and decisions made, but I really don't feel like writing an essay right now. What I will say is that it is a huge honour to be a part of such a great school - the Montessori Academy is amazing.
(a big thank you to Rainbow Wong who helped with the painting - many long hours were spent making sure that each brush stroke was perfect)
All morning I've been sitting in anticipation, waiting for one of the world's great masterpieces to appear. Finally after a few floundering hours (I couldn't think of a better word), it came drifting out of it's hiding place and filled the Hong Kong harbour with sunshine. It might just be the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.
I know I'm seriously breaking Land of Le Beef protocol by posting an actual photo, but below is the actual view of the duck from my window. The duck will be perched in front of Ocean Terminal from now until June something or other...
