My mom gave me the idea to make blocks with silk-screened designs on them. Expect to see more of these in the future.
Here are the original drawings
Telly Savalas, AKA the lolly pop eating detective, Kojak, was in a Black Velvet Canadian Whiskey advertisement in the late 70s. I should mention that Kojak would always say “who loves ya, baby”, or something similar, so Black Velvet ran this picture of Telly smiling, with a quote from Kojak himself: “Feel the velvet, baby.” Black Velvet even posted an enormous billboard by the entrance to the Bay Bridge in San Francisco. One day, when my dad was driving on the bridge, he saw the bill board had been defaced.Telly now had fangs and instead of velvet, he suggested we feel the “pain”. I dealt with this story by making it into a shirt.
I have always loved engravings and pictures of Victorian ornaments. I recently tried printing a giant ornament on some wood and cutting it out. Though I plan on refining the design, my first draft came out okay.
Here’s the design on paper.
Here’s the fired deer head. I had to epoxy to horns on. I’ve just gotta find a better way to attach them after they’re fired. This was a present for my friend, Sophie, who, you may remember, has a tattoo that yours truly designed for her.
Where’s My Rainbow?
That’s what the snail’s banner says. The exclamation says “snail!”, or “saneru”.
This is pretty self explanatory. The text says stuff like “mustard”, and “bologna”.
