Eileen did work for Mighty Grams!

March 19th, 2012 — 5:13pm

I recently worked with Mighty Grams, a company that does custom Invitations and Thank You cards. They provide their users with cards that have a more organic, illustrated feel to them.  It was a blast working with them and if want to support a company run by good people, they’re definitely one I’d recommend you give a shot. All of the illustrators and designers that they selected for their launch are very talented. You should go take a look at their website. Eileen commands it. They also update their facebook and twitter accounts pretty often, if you’d like to keep up with them that way. They have a 20% off promotion until May 31, 2012.

If you’d like to take a look at the ones I did, here they are:

Mighty Grams also did profile videos for their participating launch designers. I’m posting the video they did for me because I secretly like attention even though I pretend that I do not. I’ve only watched it once because I’m completely insecure about that sort of thing, but hopefully you enjoy it. I’m a complex person!

Warbles Chesterfield Hickenbottom and his evil cousin, Marbles

May 19th, 2011 — 6:40pm

This one has a story behind it. Brian and I were in a Petco one Saturday and I passed by the hamster tanks. There was this one, adorable, show off of a hamster pressed against the glass. I became enamored with him because he looked like he was having a blast. So, I took a few pictures of him and of the other hamster in the tank.

When I got back home, the pictures of the happy little hamster kept sending me into giggle fits. By chance, the other hamster was being a recluse and hiding in his igloo. That’s when I decided that the happy hamster should be called Warbles and the other should be his evil cousin, Marbles. Marbles can’t comprehend how his cousin could be so happy-go-lucky and is very jealous of him for it. So, his mission becomes attempting to teach Warbles a less and cause a great deal of mischief.

I actually edited those two pictures into a very brief intro comic to bring into work and make someone in particular laugh. I still kind of crack up at the quickly drawn eyebrows, monocle and a curly mustache right on top on the hamster and how lame it is.

I took the idea further and sketched Warbles and Marbles out. Marbles decided to change his facial hair between the two. He combs his hair in a different direction now too.
