DRUNK ILLUSTRATION TUESDAY: Brought to you by the NSA

This week, we’re discussing salient social issues that matter to you. No, just kidding. I’m ranting about things that don’t matter at all. Deal with it. This podcast is full of complaints and negativity. I might have forgotten to talk about art. Maybe. It’s good, though, so listen. I said listen, damnit!

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?

DRUNK ILLUSTRATION TUESDAY: Hitting the reset button
