Instant gratification

A little illustration I did for the creative
writing class project long-term readers might remember.
It´s going to be made into an audiobook, and there
were some texts without illustrations. The one I
received was about a man writing his wife
about live in Paradise, and the part that
stuck most in my head was that everybody
has a little button on his or her nose, that upon
pushing creates a wonderful orgasm.

So, yeah, this is what you see.
The rest of the text is pretty earnest,
but really, you can´t have something like
an orgasm trigger on YOUR NOSE in a text
and NOT illustrate that, right?

By the way, the book is progressing pretty
well, I´ll see if I post some more samples
later on. Until then, posts here continue
to trickle rather than flow ;)


IF: Electricity // WIP

Hi-tech racing steering wheel,
consuming tons of electricity.

Guess what? This one will enlarge upon
clicking it, too!

I promised myself to not post any new
pieces from my upcoming book, but I thought
I could at least show some updated material.
(These engines below are new, actually, but I
just couldn´t resist.)

So after I noticed that the most recent
pieces had a lot more black parts in them and
were much tighter in general, I decided to do
something I NEVER did before: Modifying drawings
that I thought were "finished". Going over them a
second time had pretty interesting results, as you
can see if you compare them to the last post.
It´s much darker now, with more cross hatching,
and the steering wheel got a huge redesign.

Maarit gave me a very valuable constructive
criticism on my pieces in progress -
just had to mention that. She just updated
her blog after weeks and weeks of silence,
so go check it out!
