Individually, none of these sketches make much sense. Collectively, they make even less sense. Trust me, there is a rhyme and a reason to it all, even the elephant flying around in a cardboard box while hugging a catfish.
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:
The Land of Le Beef just got a little bit deeper - about two thousand leagues under the sea deeper. Once again the Land of Le Beef has worked with Woodland Pre-School in Hong Kong to create a mural at their newest location on Caine Road, this time with an underwater theme.
Another part of the school features a gritty, back alley urban theme to fit with playroom town.
I saw a picture of an eagle carrying a fish the other day, and two thoughts came into my head:
1) Oh look, it's a picture of an eagle carrying a fish
2) I wonder what the fish is thinking (even though in the actual picture the fish had a fairly expressionless look on its face)
Anyway, I pondered this second thought for a while, and came up with a few ideas what might have been going through the fish's head. I then threw the question out to my massive Facebook audience for their thoughts. Here's what we came up with:
"So, how long have you been 'fly' fishing?"
"Thanks for the lift, you can just drop me right there.."
"Worst back massage EVER."
"Next time, I get to be on top."
"Are we there yet?"
"I have a bad case of bird flu - as in, a bird 'flew' by and grabbed me out of the water; and I'm probably going to die."
"Look, just because I agreed to go on this "date" with you, doesn't mean you're allowed to feed me to you kids..."
"Is it just me, or is there something fishy about this?"
“This is the last time I fly Eagle Airways"
"This is a much easier way to get upstream."
Thank you to myself (I thought of most of these), Jen, Scott, Connie, and X.Y for their contributions; you guys are awesome.
Do you like saving whales? If so, why not take a moment to sign this petition to help save a significant number of endangered Fin Whales from being hunted for sport by an evil super villain. The whales will thank you for it.
