Flaming Lips

Flaming Lips

Today my old friend @blueskyfalconer suggested “underwater unicorn with flaming lips at night time” for my reader-suggestion #CollabFriday illustration.

Why do i keep getting suggestions like this? How many times do I have to tell you people that I am not actually on drugs?

Not even legal ones!

Whatever… I liked the Flaming Lips part so I put on some Yoshimi and here you go.

Love collaborating on Fridays! Check out other collabs from past weeks.

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

Today my #CollabFriday partner is @citrushearts (aka Bree Walk) who sent me this polaroid of her nephew who she said loves The Beatles and especially Yellow Submarine…

As soon as I saw this photo the opening riff to Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds was playing in my head…

Announcing: Old & New Project

Old & New Project

For CollabFriday today I’m announcing my most recent BIG collaboration: Old & New Project

This past year I’ve been able to meet several Twitter connections face-to-face for the first time. It’s a pretty cool experience picking up with friends as if you’ve been that way for years.

I was especially lucky to meet up with Jim LePage at last summer’s WMCFest. We’d already featured one-another’s work on our respective sites, and with the overwhelming amount of shared passions it was really only a matter of time before we joined forces on something big.

What was really cool was how we’d both already dreamed up a similar idea independently from one another—to do a collaborative biblical-themed design project with skilled graphic artists from around the world. Read more

Ape Swanson Pyramid of Greatness

Today’s CollabFriday “What should I draw” is a combination of ideas from Adam & Chelsea. Who suggested Ron Swanson and a gorilla, respectively.

Made perfect sense as far as I’m concerned.

About CollabFriday

Each week I like to randomly collaborate with whoever is willing. Fridays will rotate reader suggestions (i.e. “What should I draw today”), spontaneous collabs via Twitter w/fellow artists/photogs/illustrators (“who wants to collaborate today), and artist interviews. Follow on Twitter and Facebook so you can participate next Friday!

Space Trilogy

This week’s CollabFriday project was one heck of a challenge!

I received a handful of random photos from Cleveland photographer Caroline Moore, and T.J Walsh (who you may remember from his Odorifous interview) sent me a shot of one of his paintings.

After a bunch of random experimenting, I ended up with what reminded me of sci-fi covers from the C.S. Lewis “space trilogy” that I read 20-or-so years ago.

Does anyone know who the illustrator was from this edition of the series?
