Wordsmith


I did this drawing in Queens, New York. A nice little sunny Saturday afternoon. There was not going to be enough time to do one of my major sketches. So I chose to do this kiddie horse in front of some weird store. I actually planned in advance that I would make the background interesting by using colored words. How was I going to make this dumb little drawing more impressive? I relied on stream of consciousness. I was not really interested in what the words said but in how the final result looked. Everything I wrote is true.

I see a photo series: Playing the Ponies.

What's the going rate for creative consultation these days?

Minimum wage.

Not directly related to this drawing. See that another (not as NYC- appropriate as your's) squirrel will be the NYC Parks Dept. mascot.

That's a pretty good squirrel.

pearl the squirrel? I prefer the idea of the tommykane.com squirrel as the mascot, but i guess the gun-toting squirrel would be an issue for the Parks Dept.
