What will Those krazy kids at teen bop and queen of hearts think of next hey?! well we're toning it down for this night! Softening that focus, get the ornamental log fire running, Dust of that moth eaten turtle neck jumper that your dad had when MASH was the coolest tv show on the telly, comb over that hair that'll give donald trump a run for his money, buy that andy williams record thats been on sale at the local charity shop since last christmas; YEs that right slush puppies, Mulled wine, chocolate fountains, its sure gonna be a "Fun doo"!
Liam of the The Fabulous Penetrators asked me to make a poster for their Spainish tour. Here it is after 24hrs of intense drawing and photoshop. Will post more on the development of this, as I'm not sure they will use it....So Watch this space.
A Friend of mine is the Landlord of a pub called The Alma (In Crystal Palace), and booked me to spin some Surf/R&B/R&R wax - I love Pomade; and their tin designs look as if they havn't been updated since the 50's. check out Nu Nile pomade
Heres the flyer- Quickly drawn in the late hours of Saturday. Come along if your in the local area.
Heres is the Okidoodle Book! We currently preparing the book launch on Sat Oct 17th at the Doodle bar, for more details go to (http://www.okido.co.uk) ! It took about 9 months of this year from beginning to end. Sophie, Rachel and myself thought it be great to start publishing small publications under the OKIDO name. After a few brain storms and Pietra beers, we thought it be best to do some sort of activity book. Then we came up with Okidoodle! I think it took only one month to think up and roughly draw out about 100 ideas, Then we spent a lot of time laying it out and finalizing with some sharp words by Gabby. then Rachel had the great idea! Which was to draw in Messy monster in a few pages of the book, and let messy do what he does best! Its up to you now to sort out the choas messy has caused!
To purchase OKIDOODLE- perfect bound, printed on Friendly drawable paper and at a very reasonable price of £4.99 click on Okidoodle.
Okido will be hosting a launch party of Issue 10 and Okidoodle book on the 17th Oct. All are welcome, and will be held at the Doodle bar in Battersea, where the walls are painted white every week - and you're encouraged to draw on the walls, furniture and even the staff! here's the flyer.
Here's a Poem/song for issue 10 of okido. I featured our character Zoom, Since he was the joke in this issue's 'Zim, Zam, Zoom' story. I wanted Zoom to appear again later in the magazine, to prove he could express many feelings! unlike a robot.
> A story originally written by Gabby, And started of as a poem with illustrations. But I loved the idea of a balloon planet so much i wanted to make it into a story with not many words, and speech bubbles. The cafe in the story is the local cafe that i go to, and the owner has plans to frame the picture on the wall in the cafe. Also i have featured my favorite design shop, Magma books in the illustration.
Thats right! we were bound to end up doing a party in the theme of a Tarantino film..Well here it is, Mortifying Uma Thurman and using the trademark Rhubarb and custard Teenbop colour scheme. I added the creases and paper stress in pencil and used a photoshop effect. As For the Sundae kups, we can finally gonna play all those amazing surf songs from the film including Bustin' surfboards by the tornadoes! Foooo!
