Don’t worry about a style. It will creep up on you and eventually you will have to undo it in order to go further. Be like a river and accept everything.A wonderful article: Gary Panter’s Drawing Tips (via the Drawn blog). Definitely worth a read for artists! (via ravenskar)
Great billboard. That looks like the scene from my 3rd grade lunch box!
Nov. 17, 1976: “Paul Chin paints billboards,” reads the article accompanying this photograph. “Every weekday morning, provided it is not raining, snowing or dangerously windy, the 5-feet 6-inch Mr. Chin, a native of Hong Kong, climbs to the roofs of buildings and into his narrow studio — a scaffold.” Mr. Chin, the art director for Artkraft Strauss, created this King Kong billboard towering over Midtown Manhattan.

Born in 1790, John Tyler was our 10th President. He took office in 1841 after William Henry Harrison died. And he has two living grandchildren!
Not great-great-great-grandchildren. Their dad was Tyler’s son.
How is this possible? The Tyler men have a habit of having kids very late in life. Lyon Gardiner Tyler, one President Tyler’s 15 kids, was born in 1853. He fathered Lyon Gardiner Tyler Jr. in 1924, and Harrison Ruffin Tyler in 1928.
