Made for this week Illustration Friday Invention, If I was an inventor a fully automated Hydra would come first. Wouldn't it be nice to have one? If a head gets broken a new one is created.

According to new research it's possible to be addicted to blogging and constant email checking, akin to chemical addiction apparently. While reading about this I felt a pang of recognition is this someone else have to, should one be worried? And on the lighter side, house bliss And if your still with me, why not visit Argentina and two great bloggers: diburtimentos with some wild drawing, (Freud whould have a field day) and mi-bulin, his stuff always make me think of music, (it's got a jazzy feel to it). And try to stay out of addiction , go out and get some fresh air!

Simplified automobile Product enhancements I did some addition to my future illustration, the print area is a little wider then the original illustration. I'll have to make some retouching in photoshop to get the pieces together, I have an A4 scanner and the drawing is in A3.
I'm thinking of making a small collection of my sketchbooks available for purchase, (with the help of my wife who is a bookbinder), its only in the planning stages but it will not take to long time. I'm also planning to make some less expensive prints from my sketchbooks, I'll post things on my Shop, that still is development, and of course on my blog. No enough of me bantering, where's the picture you say. Old Linoleum print. Made this while taking my masters of fine arts Some sketchbook pets: how well do you know your Goethe? His masters voice She only go one thing wrong It's not easier even though you are a king The importance of nail varnish
The lecture is finished I had a blast, and the audience didn't throw rotten eggs at me. It was not priest students as stated earlier but student priests, apparently it's not the same.
I won't be able to post something on my blog tomorrow, I'm to give a talk about the moral aspects of Making computer games to priest students (Hope my tongue won't slip, I'm a devoted heathen). I'll stick to the airplane theme once again, I'd love to see monkeys with airplanes.
Followers of my blog might have noticed that I have a soft spot for hats, you may recall my hat for Architects. Sometimes I wish that a career advisor had seen my gift while at school and said: Young man, you are unique, the best way you can serve human kind is to be a hat maker. But alas ad visoring is not the science it used to be and look at me and the world now.
I had a hard time finding some puritans and turkeys to model for me for this weeks Illustration Friday. At last I found a couple of old puritans that nested not to far from where we are living. As for turkeys I had to shave a couple of swans hope this isn't considered cheating.
Remember this dragon? The beatnik dragon. His got a fat film contract and is going to be a big star (that's what he thinks anyway, he no longer talks to me). You can check out the evolution of the film over at Mikael Emtinger blog he is the director. Hope Fame will not spoil him, dragons turn Diva pretty easily, it's best to keep them on a short string
