When It Rains It Pours

I just wanted to re-draw the Morton’s Umbrella Girl and add a little twist—I have no idea why. I think this would make a great cut vinyl decal or t-shirt someday.

Be cool to animals everybody.

Venus Painting

I’ve been trying out a few new ways to make oil-like paintings in Photoshop. It’s only a study but I thought I’d share it with you guys. I have a ton of stuff I never show and I’m working on to be more open with it so please be kind. Anyhow, I think this one turned out pretty good for a first shot at it. Might try the real thing next or make these a series.

The 10 Best Albums of 2008

I’ve being mulling over whether or not to do a Top 10 list for 2008 for a while now. The fact is that 2008 was a crummy year for music no matter how you want to slice it. There wasn’t a great selection of new stuff to choose from but I finally made it down to a final ten so I thought I’d share it with you. (All the links go to youtube vids.)

01. Crystal Castles - Crystal Castles
02. Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes
03. Wolf Parade - At Mount Zoomer
04. No Age - Nouns
05. Okkervil River - The Stand Ins
06. Beach House - Devotion
07. Blood Red Shoes - Box of Secrets
08. Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head - Glistening Pleasure
09. Black Milk - Tronic
10. Hercules and Love Affair - Hercules and Love Affair

Better late then never right? As always, let me know who I’m forgetting!
