See if you can find the hungry stowaway in this little road trip! Bonus points if you can find the number of feathered friends these old birds are taking with them.
Answers on a postcard!

Funny things can happen to a bored mind.
Well, to my bored mind anyway.
With a lull in projects at the moment I looked forward to doing some stuff for myself, but mainly to get back into doing some drawing. I used to draw almost exclusively but lately I seem to have spent more time lurking about in the world of graphic design. I'm not really saying its a bad thing and I've enjoyed it but also a part of me misses just...drawing. I've always tried to included an illustrative element into anything I design as I think that's a big part of my identity as an 'artist' (i don't think I'll ever be able to say that without the quotation marks), but its still different to the work I was doing only a year or so ago. I appreciate though that my style of drawing doesn't always fit the right feel to some projects and my main satisfaction from any jobs I do for other people is that they feel 'right'. That they fit the sound of a band or the right look for a club night or whatever. That's the main reason I branched slightly away from doing straight up drawing in some cases. And probably something I'll continue to do when I feel its the right move stylistically. So the last six months or so's work has been for the better mainly I think (hope) but I still miss just doing a big drawing for no other reason other then wanting to do a big drawing.
So anyway, faced with some free time and this want to do a big drawing obviously I spent last night designing an unofficial poster that has absolutely no drawing in it at all for a Chesney Hawkes gig (06/02/10 @ The Freebutt. Its diary time people!)
Because that makes sense.
To my bored mind.
