Fishyman by MumblingIdiot Fishyman by MumblingIdiot
Hey guys I drew a fisherman. He's a bit fishy. He needs a bigger boat.

Sorry, there is better and more substantial stuff coming soon. I'm sitting on a lot of stuff that I can't really put online yet and have lots of exciting/fun things for the future but I'm stuck in the mire of turgid university faffings currently.

How are you?

Only if you want to be cracked over the head with symbolism and overrun with monosyllabic words. I think I'm a book snob though, so you shouldn't listen to me.

Excited to see what you'll come up with. I just got a sweet commission for something in the US again. things are looking good.

That's awesome. What happened with that other thing you mentioned, did that pan out okay?

yeah it was a cool adventure. eventually they didn't use my illustrations because the client ( not them, they were just the design studio pitching the idea ) felt more like doing something in 3D. so that's how it goes in the advertising business I guess. I don't mind. not now that is. but the design studio liked what I did and there's possible future jobs. I got rewarded for my efforts here, so you don't hear me complain :)

Ahh, well that's a shame. But still cool overall though that it happened. Better luck next time I guess and I'm sure there will be plenty of next times.

aww, thanks man. yeah sure, but I won't go waiting for them or others. Having way too much fun making stuff on my own. It just has to come out in some kind of way. Quoting that dude from Kitsune Noir: "don't waste time, make amazing stuff and good things will happen."

and that's so true. but not fully, I think. Sometimes while wasting time, you get ideas to make amazing stuff :).

speaking of Kitsune Noir, a friend of mine has your wallpaper on his desktop. when he opened his laptop today, I went like: holy shit, I know that illustration ! and he went like: yeah, amazing isn't it ? and I went like: hey I know that dude! and he went like: holy shit! he's amazing. So, your art is being shown in Belgian graphic design classes, dude !

Ohh cool, that's awesome! I wasn't sure it made a great wallpaper, even though it won, because it's quite busy. That's nice to know though. You should tell him he should really get a new one though, christmas was over ages ago!

He's melting...does that mean that it's hot outside? btw his mustache looks like a fish's tail.

His expression is reminiscent of someone passing a rather unpleasant gall-stone.

hmmm this looks a bit more on the japanese side that your usual work, i'm basing that off the big sweat and red cheek ovals...

just saying ;P

Yep! He is. I did it for a presentation my sister was doing and she needed some Chibi type characters. So I just kind of infused him with Japanese. There are some cute lil robot/superhero type characters as well but I don't think I'll be letting them see the light of day.

The texture's just a random texture. From somewhere. Slapped on top.
