Real Ink

Here is some real art!
I usually have something like this on the go but I don't often post them as they are large and difficult to take a quick snapshot of.
But it's real!
Real pen and real ink and real paper.

Later in the day.
I took a picture of myself with a digital camera today and I felt I somewhat resembled the French actor John-Claude Dreyfus, who most folks will know from the film Delicatessen.
He's got about 604 times more character in his mug than I do but I think there's a resemblance.

Also - here's a reworked song for all my friends out there who, like I, work in advertising.

To be sung to the tune of Jingle Bells.

Sitting at my desk.
Writing yule tide ads.
Pushing used car sales,
And things that help your abs.
Running out of time,
To finish all these bits,
The quickest way to sell this stuff,
Is use lots of perky tits.

Jingle Bells,
Christmas sells,
Prices slashed right now.
We've dropped out pants,
Here's your last chance,
To save on puppy chow,
Clearance sale.
Prices pale.
Everything must go.
Forget Jesus,
Saving pleases,
Every one we know!

I agree that I would buy something because of perky tits..oh and a midget mascot.

" Happy Birthday Jesus..Sorry, we've made your party so lame."

El Snoozo - I have used perky tits to sell more that you could possibly imagine...

Hello Elliot! You have such variety in your posts!

Love these alien-like creature drawings, and the holiday shlockery-mockery is a delight.

PS: thanks for the link and the technicoloured (using the British spelling as we do here in Canada too) description!

Elliot said...

Rayray - it's a trap for young players...

Doodlers - what a nice thing to say.
I always assume my work carries a bit of a sameness that I'm constantly trying to shed - so ta.
As for the link - my pleasure!!!

Reminds me of a character out of the Grinch who stole Christmas if it were in B&W. Excellent. Merci!

Elliot said...

Why thanks Eric.
That's a nice thing to say!
