Why Can't I Feel Feelings?

I couldn't help myself.

After taking Netflix's advice and watching Equilibrium, I loved it!

In a nutshell, it's about a world of emotionless people who are all doped up on serum that numbs feelings, as prescribed by law by the government. The serum is the worlds answer to war since with no emotion, one cannot create conflict. Christian Bale plays a widowed "cop" type character who stops taking his meds and starts to feel again, leaving him to question what he does and why things are the way they are. It's a pretty cool flick. Plus anyones bad acting is easily masked by the fact that they are meant to be emotionless. One of my favorite scenes from the movie is an awesome fight scene between Christian Bale and a squad of the more normal cops(Christian Bales character is more of a super cop with training in shot prediction so he can avoid the most likely areas a bullet would travel in a shoot out, pretty sweet). They found out he's been hoarding a dog which is against regulation. The big fight scene ends with Bale finishing off the last of the officers with a dramatic pose and pause, then he bends down to grab something...

After seeing this I immediately drew a crude sketch of what is now my Equilibrium tribute art to this scene. I love the idea of this skilled gun fighter killing over a dozen men for this puppy's and his protection. A cool relationship between a killer and an innocent being.

I hope you enjoy my rendition of these two in my Society6 shop.

What is Goo Aush?

I have seen this word before. I have been reading it for years, never once have I heard it said by a person. I think artists avoid saying it to avoid awkwardness but one of them did.

This introduction to illustration video has the talented Alison Woodward illustrating some animals in bottles and gives it some nice highlights using GWOSH at the end.

I was blown away. Forever I thought it was "gauch" or "goush" or just something non-audible. Anyway, I looked it up and it is pronounced "goo-aush" but when said fast enough sounds exactly like "gwosh".

Maybe I can finally buy it in confidence.

The Darth Phone

I recently added phone and laptop covers to my Darth Face art print!

You would look totally cool by repping the Empire on your phone.... you'd look like a bad ass.

The "R" stands for REBEL-SCUM!

Fireball Bunny!

Here is a poster I made that didn't make it past this stage.... life of a graphic artist. Although, I did happen to film the whole process for anyone interested in the process. Enjoy

The song is also a kick ass mix by Wik-it the Instigator from his Tarantino mash-up album.

Are LimoLand and Mike Oncley a Match Made in The Stars?

You tell me.

Voting had opened for my patterned pisces shirt for the Talenthouse LimoLand contest. Click through and hit vote, it's that easy!

I am a pisces and never understood why these two fish were tied together. I figured they must be getting punished. So this is my "ball and chain" pisces design.
