I was a copywriter and concept artist for Wishb, LLC, at their now defunct online children’s community GlobWorld. If the site still works you can see it at globworld.com. I made many of the posts the last three months it was still in business. Here is some concept art.
I came upon a photo of Orson Welles yelling, and it reminded me of a gorilla I once drew. So I threw them together thinking they’d be fast friends. The gorilla on the yellow shirt is yelling “jungle scream”. I got the idea for this design from a disgusting Swedish candy called Djungel Vral whose mascot is a cartoon gorilla.
My friend and I are trying to make a series of skulls to decorate, sort of like a combination of the Munny toy, sugar skulls, and Luchador masks. So far, I’ve made one ceramic skull that I like. I used some recycled clay that gave it a nice marbled effect when I shoved it into a plaster mold I made. Eventually I’d like to make a slip cast. This ain’t over…
Hand guns are difficult to make from wood because of their size and detail. However, I was playing Contract Killer:Zombies on my dad’s iPad and I saw a really simple design. I later introduced a mobile clip.
I’d like to demonstrate how mature I am. In keeping with my tradition of drawing unflattering pictures of humans, this is a drawing of people I don’t like. I made shirts and distributed them to people who shared my dislike or would run into these cads. My uncle Noel is pictured wearing one of these shirts. He’s a good sport. A prototype of one of the guys on the shirt is below.
“Becka” is another person that I dislike. You might call her a “Debbie Downer”. Then again you might call me an asshole. Fair enough. On the panel “Lady Becka’s Tote Bag”, I had to replace the handwritten type because my handwriting is so bad. In fact, if you cannot read anything in that panel let me know.
Adventures in Cultural Literacy is the product of San Francisco State University’s graduate composition program. Graduate candidate Paul Glanting had the task of exploring an aspect of the community college where he was teaching, through any medium he chose. We collaborated over a period of several weeks to conceptualize, draft, and eventually publish what would become Adventures in Cultural Literacy.
