'Gorillaz' Self-Portrait ... Urgh

Motorola is promoting its new iTunes phone ROKR with a character design contest ( I'm a great admirer of the 'Gorillaz' style but simply lack the vibe to create something so cool. Nevertheless, I decided to give it a try by first drawing a self-portrait ala Gorillaz. Resulting in this ...

Sigh, I think it looks more 'Stripperella' than 'Gorillaz' ... got to try a lot harder.

Treat or trick!

Alright, I know it's a tad early ... but I can't resist! The Asian ghosts want to go treat-or-trick-ing too! Happy Halloween (way in advance) :-)

Illustration Friday - Fresh

When i think 'fresh', I think 'fresh milk'.
When I think 'milk', I think 'cows'.
I always feel cows are unfortunate animals cursed with the ridiculous udder and having to endure being milked. For all it suffers, methinks it wouldn't hurt for cows to have some kind of attitude!

Illustration Friday - Escape

I dun wanna go potty!
I dun wanna poop any!
Yes i mean it, mommy!
Just stay away from meeeee!!!

Heh heh, based on a true account of my colleague's toddler girl. She really did escape from a session with the potty, with her poop marking her escape path. I thought it's so cute and funny, though my colleague didn't seem to think so (quite obviously so, I wasn't the one who had to pick up the mess of turd).

With every problem, there is a solution... introducing the state-of-the-art potty - I call it the iPoop! Will the gadgets help overcome potty-phobia?

Illustration Friday - Depth

Deep in the depths
The guru holds his breath
His thoughts his faith
His will his strength
He seeks the truth
That lies beneath
Down in the depths

Illustration Friday - Roots

I was stumped by this week's topic ... sketched a couple of trees with roots aplenty but they just didn't seem right. So I took a break and went to the kitchen to hunt for some chomp. And there it was, inspiration in the form of a piece of ginger. It looked like a figure with limbs and quite full of action. With root vegetables in mind, here's my take for this week - the rock band THE ROOTZ! Rock on!
