“Angry Birds Artists Series” - Illustrations by Sam Spratt
A ways back, Rovio commissioned me to create a series of illustrations based on their characters from a certain bajillion-selling game series. These are the first 4 illustrations (Red Bird, Yellow Bird, Black Bird, and King Pig), with more to be revealed in the future.
Artist Joel Harris charged himself with the awesome task of envisioning what our favourite superheroes would look like if they were manatees. Here you see “Captain Amanatee”, “Supermanatee”, “Batmanatee”, “Spider-Manatee” and “Green Lantern Manatee”. They might be a bit slow and somewhat drowsy, but their superpowers are still nothing to be trifled with and, we can only hope, also include an invulnerability to boat propellers.
Visit his deviantART gallery to view more of Joel’s Super Manatees.

Five of my favorite ladies - Bessie Smith, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, and Etta James. Graphite drawings over watercolor, digitally composited with a little use of the eraser tool in Photoshop. Other than those little circles, unedited.
Prints are available of all but Bessie at www.society6.com/kerosene. Get ‘em while you can! After Bessie is posted, I’ll leave the singles up for a week, before making the set of five together the only option.
