Paper by 53, iPad



I saw Very Semi Serious the other day, a documentary about New Yorker cartoonists, and was inspired by Edward Steed to revisited my goal of creating a reasonably expressive round headed stick type person, thus this gallery of heads. They seemed stark without color and so I added some.

Vintage Mascots – Mr. Product

mrproduct Found this interesting design book at Bookshop Santa Cruz (a place mercifully unchanged from my college memories – inexplicably it is still, in 2015, full of new books) which I bought to help with drawing practice. Tony the Tiger, like most public figures, looked better before getting into steroids and plastic surgery.

Typewriter Shack, Envisioned

Firstly, if you have a writing shack or trailer, I want to see pictures. If you *want* a writing shack or trailer, what would it look like? Here’s my artistic rendition of two potential options:

This shackwant is, in my case, a reaction to feeling totally overwhelmed by the complexities of corporate and family life. I’m picturing myself as an elderly George Bernard Shaw, shut up in my splintery 8X8 enclosure, a place in which I can pretend a simple typewriter and cup of coffee are the only things I must contend with– that, and perhaps a cat.

Another bit of advice on the Googles, by the way? Don’t search for vintage canned ham trailers. For you’ll then want one or several, and will lose future hours to trolling Craigslist and thinking about vintage fabric for miniature window treatments. I can think of nothing quite delightfully like a typewriter in style and substance than a canned ham trailer, can you?

Will we all eventually meet up for a canned ham trailer and typing convention in some unsuspecting campground? I can only hope some summer that we do.
