Do they really do that? What's the point? I mean, the mailman knows. And you know what? He probably assumes it's something crazy, like Bongs and Thongs, not something benign like Penthouse.

ANYWAY I love the parking lot image.

Fishing

Post by Frank Stockton » Mon Apr 14, 2008 4:23 pm

someone hired me to do fishing pictures.


I taught my first class today. I gave a talk about my work, it was ELECTRIFYING. People started freaking out because I"m so passionate.

Cool images Frank...

Even cooler about your teaching experience! Thats AWESOME... a dead class is a bummer, a class full of people willing to learn and searching for knowledge is great. Couple that with an instructor who is passionate... man, explosive combo!

Great drawings! I like the execution on that first one - the upshot, the fishes.

Also, good on ya for teaching. People NEED passionate, skilled teachers. Lame, know-nothing teachers were always such a letdown.

I can totally relate to the teaching experience Frank. It's such a surge of positive energy when the students respond well...and, frankly.. why wouldn't they? You're one of the absolute best there is! Heck...I'd take a class of yours!

Beautiful images, as always

That is an excellent vantage point on the first fishing illustration. And is that a guerrilla fisherman in the third one?

yes.


To everyone else-- the teaching was so much fun. I talked for like an hour and a half without a break and it was awesome. i realized I have so many ideas in my head that I can talk about for hours... heh... I think I'm going to do a talk every week that's along those lines.


out!

Any chance of recording Frank's Best Class Ever and putting it up as a Podcast?

Beautiful stuff! I love the expression of the fisherman on the golf course, hilarious.

I'm definitely having negative feelings about the border on the last one. I have a previous life as a graphic designer and fuzzy edges like you have around it remind of cheap newsletters laid out in microsoft word. I'd treat it more like the spot illustrations of yesterday (http://todaysinspiration.blogspot.com/) where the edges make a strong silhouette. Having things fade out is cool to me it's just the way you did it looks like what students often did when they first got into photoshop. Just something I have a personal distaste for. Do what you will though, it's your vision.
