Wild Things again??

I'm trying to get the hang of Corel Painter, here's another project I did.  Wild Things are great to draw.  If your on the internet and see some unique art of Where the Wild Things are, you should let me know. 
P.S. For all of you wondering, my show went well.  I should have another one soon, this time in Provo.  I'll keep you posted for where and when it'll be.

I love digital media. I like working with illustrator specifically. I like how I can change something so quickly. I love screen printing as well. Here are two different color schemes I used for a Gogol Bordello poster that I made. The first are normal colors, and the second is kind of a Japanese color scheme I was thinking of. Gogol Bordello has so many different members of different nationality in their band, and I thought of how I would love to print this with so many different colors.

Also, if you ever get the chance to see Gogol Bordello live, TAKE IT! It is like a circus! They were so entertaining and had such an awesome stage presence!

I Am The Walrus

I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together. Has anyone read these lyrics? What does Lennon mean in them? While researching it out I discovered that Lennon had taken three songs that he was writing and put them together while adding a bunch of nonsensical lyrics because he heard that a class from his old primary school was asked by their teacher to analyze and interpret the lyrics of The Beatles. He was also inspired mostly by the Lewis Carroll poem "The Walrus and The Carpenter." I remember this poem mostly from watching the Disney film Alice in Wonderland when I was a kid. It is recited by Tweedledum and Tweedledee. The walrus and a carpenter invite some oysters over and than the walrus eats them up. Lennon didn't know until later that the walrus was actually the villain of the story. I am the carpenter didn't sound as good anyways.

What does goo goo ga joob mean anyway? I always thought they were saying coocookachoo, which is what Simon and Garfunkel say in their song "Mrs. Robinson." I thought there was some connnection there, but I guess they both just threw them in their songs to make them flow better.

I don't think I'm the walrus. I think I might be an oyster.
