Polish Book Cover Contest (50 Watt) // To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

This is a contest from my new favourite blog 50 Watts it's basically an archive of some of the most awesome design I have ever seen.

The competition brief is simple "Design the Polish edition of your favorite book". I have chose To Kill A Mockingbird – or in Polish Zabić Drozda - by Harper Lee, it's a seriously fantastic book, if you haven't read it then you should, now, right now in fact.

Wish me luck! I will let you know how I get on.

If Camels Could Sing ...

"Hi, I'm a camel. When I open my mouth this crazy shit comes out. It's pretty, pretty, right? Yeah I thought so too."

I watched the deserts Human Planet the other day, it had camels in it. Camels are cool, like fezs and stetsons. Fish fingers and custard. Ahem.

Walrus-Hare-Lizard-Sloth Monster

I'd be hard pushed to explain exactly what this is about or why I drew it. It is the product of me and my friend Tom and our drawing club*, plus a book about monsters and another about animals. He also brought round a box of twisters ... so i guess that explains that part. It's silly and I like it.

*This is really just an excuse for us to hang out and make work like we did before when we lived together.

My contribution to this issue, in a salute to my long standing TV series obsession, is a drawing of my favourite female TV characters - lo brow tastic - you may notice a strong Joss Whedon influence. See if you can name all the shows/actresses.
