DRUNK ILLUSTRATION TUESDAY: Spite-Deer

This week, I’m drawing deer. You can find out why in my first podcast, embedded below. Do I really need a reason though? I don’t. Deer are wonderful, noble creatures who we occasionally eat or draw because they’re delicious or beautiful, respectively.

Watch the illustrated posters for a production of ‘A Christmas Carol’ come together step by step with live actors

Any actor tasked with embodying a character in a production as iconic as “A Christmas Carol” is challenging enough, but what about having to stand still, not saying a word, and still being instantly recognizable to any audience?
