BINGE!













Here's my submission for the FOURTY show next Friday. Because I'm a crappy painter, I decided to cheat and go digital. I came up with a label idea, drew a couple character sketches (top left), and did the whole thing up in Flash (top right).













Then, I printed my label on some sticky photo paper and slapped it down on a big bottle of Olde English "800". It looked pretty swell, but something was missing! My lovely wife with her keen eye suggested a mini 60s style lampshade. Because I'm a bit of a moron I scoffed and thought 'ha! I don't think soooo'. Then she described what she meant and I was sold. We bought the materials, she made the shade and voila! a retro stylin' malt liquor lamp fit for Mr. Drunkard's late night binges!

The submission looks really good. I love the style of the drunkard, and the bubble says it all.
Have you tried uploading these on MyToons.com yet? It's the hotspot for artist/animators...

Keep the work coming!

p.s. Hats off to your wife! 40 oz. lamps could be the wave of the future...

Turned out super rad man! Lamp shade definately added that last little touch. Wish I could have made it to the show, and got my bottle done, I suck at life apparently, ha.
