Robots and Monsters

John Martz originally posted this on Drawn! earlier this week, but I had to spread the love.

Please check out Robots and Monsters! A description per their site:

RobotsAndMonsters.org is a charitable art project that matches goodwill and charitable giving with custom-made commissioned cartoon and pop art. Giving just a little bit gets you an original drawing of a robot or a monster of your specification sent to your door – and in the process, you get to sleep better at night, because you know you’ve just helped out a great cause.

Part charitable powerhouse, part experiment in collective creativity, and part underground pop-art gallery, we aim to change the world, one robot and monster at a time.

A donation gets you a rocking picture of a monster or robot, customized according to your keywords, and you get to help out a worthy cause.

It’s robots! and monsters! and ROBOTS!

I Am the One in the Center

I can’t wait to post all about our successful SPX adventure, but The Man is putting me to the grindstone this week. In the meantime please take a gander at a collaboration I did with the very talented Jeff Zoet. He should get a medal, since I am classically unphotogenic. Josh says I have to be experienced in “live action” to be “appreciated”.

I assume “live action” refers to my falling down a lot.

Jeff gifted me the raw file and I did the photo retouching. It is by no means flawless, and I learned a lot (like plucking one’s eyebrows before a photo is a great idea). If anyone’s got any pointers on retouching humans I’d love to hear them.

I told the monsters they looked sexy as-is. Francis isn’t even wearing make-up.

Some Christmas Cheer

I’ve been wrestling with what to get my niece for Christmas. After some brainstorming, I came up with… SHOES! What young diva doesn’t love shoes? I found these babies at Kohl’s:

Cute as a button, but a little impersonal. So I added a couple friends to watch her back.

I hope she likes them. I’d wear them. Generally, it was pretty tough to pick just one pair. I could have emptied my bank account strictly in pink boots. Kids’ shoes are freakin adorable.
