More clothing designs! I did this one for a steampunk contest on the website "we love fine". So you can actually vote for this shirt, and if it wins, you can buy it. I'll let you guys know when the voting opens. I participated because a) Steampunk is cool and b) winning puts 2000$ in my pockets and puts one of my drawings on the chests of people. How can one say no to that? So, when the voting opens on October 6th (i'll post a reminder), I hope you guys will vote for little old me!
I wrote this as my description : "A true partially robotic lady knows that fashionable clockwork hearts and plasma guns are the way to a man's heart. Preferably through his rib cage. This design has been created by Isabelle Melancon, a Montréal comic artist and creator of the webcomic "Namesake".
Because yeah, robotic ladies get to be classy, amiright?
Yesterday, I went to the "Drawn and Quaterly" store for the release of Craig Thompson (author of Blanket's) second book.
It's a BIG book. It's something like 600 pages and it's hardcover. Link went with me. Thompson did a short presentation (we missed about half since it started at 7h and I get home around 7h), then a Q&A, then he signed books. He drew a Jinn in mine. And then he kinda hugged me.
Yeah, this guy signs books and then hugs it's readers. It's adorable! However, since I am very nervous when strangers hug me and also very nervous when I meet my heroes, my heart just died. I'm sure he felt it trying to beat it's way out of my ribcage, by hey, such is life.
I got hope, placed the large book on my drawing desk and read it for two hours. Words really can't describe this books. It's a muslim fairy tale, a fable about water, a fable about human nature and the environement, a tale about love and loss... it's everything. Everything in a single book. It took him 6 years to make and it shows. I mean, look at it :
Over and out.
