Jim Henson was a genius. I remember this little clip from my many hours watching Sesame Street as a child, it used to make me laugh then, it still does, but now that laughter comes added with warm fuzziness too. Jim Henson characters melt my heart.
I actually found this little clip on one of my favourite illustrators blog, someone whom I have been following for some years now, PlastiqueMonkey, with work by Yuka Yamaguchi. It is not very often you get to see such interesting and original works and I suspect it is because she is self taught and as she says she “…recently started telling people she was an artist..”. Here is a taste ….
Yatta! (exclamation of happiness and excitement in Japanese). I have representation! Hopefully this will mean less time spent on marketing and more time doing what really matters… creating images!
The agency is called “The Jacky Winter Group” and it is run by a truly awesome fellow called Jeremy Wortsman. I took a shine to him straight away, he has a way with words you see… and design I must add, the Jacky Winter Field Guide is a truly lovely book (and I’m not just saying that ’cause my Dad organized the printing;-)).
In other news, I have put some works up at Ume Nomiya, some new, some not so new, if you are in the Fitzroy area head on down Gertrude St and get your fill of edamame and Asahi beer, and have a chat to the lovely Fiona, she’s a great conversationalist, as bar tenders are want to be…. unlike illustrators;-)
Oh and have a great weekend!
