MEOW




I don't really know if we are meant to have revealed the new Meow theme yet but I think most of you guys already know that it's costumes. Your work really doesn't have to be Halloween themed! It would be really cool to get a massive range of costumes. These posters will be going up around uni on monday morning so GET DRAWING! else you'll have Helen, Fred, Toby and me continuously nagging you

WHHHOOOOAAAAAAA... I THINK SOMEONE'S BEEN TAKING A BIT TOO MUCH LSD IN THE BATH AGAIN.

also, why does his ass look like it's pressed up against something when he's in a bottomless tub? i smell an art fail.
hoy hoy comrades!

it's october, which means halloween just around the corner. as such, the new theme is TRICK OR TREAT. go nuts, y'all.

don't forget, there are all the old themes as well for you to get all creative on;

NEW YORK, FOOD STUFFS, WHEN I GROW UP, I WANT TO BE______, FANTASTIC MACHINES, SONGS, DENTAL TRAUMA, SELF PORTRAIT, SUN/SEA/SAND.

SEE YOU ON MONDAY!

p.s if you have any suggestions for future themes, shout us a hollar, yo.

"songs"


This is about a song called "Worried Shoes", by Daniel Johnston, but Karen O and the Kids did an amazing version for the Where the Wild Things Are soundtrack. Look it up. <3

Self portrait

Trying to resist bursting into singing that song from Mulan. You know the sappy one she sings after she completley cocks it up with the matchmaker?

Monday, 16 August 2010

greetings comrades! seeings as there's still a few months till the weather goes right off, i figure we should probably see out the summer with an appropriate theme... a theme such as;

SUN/ SEA/ SAND.

interoperate as you will!

don't forget there's now a good, fat backlog of old themes for you to tackle as well if this doesn't grab you; NEW YORK, FOOD STUFFS, WHEN I GROW UP, I WANT TO BE______, FANTASTIC MACHINES, SONGS, DENTAL TRAUMA, SELF PORTRAIT

Songs v.2

Okay... first of all I need to just state a fact. I don't like this song. But since I heard it i've had this image in my head.

Firefilies. by Owl CityHere's the song... sorry everyone.

Songs

Rather late song entry... how shameful considering it was my entry into the suggestion box -__-'
Anyway here it is.

Yoshimi battles the pink robots part one. by The Flaming Lips. (how predictable of me! :P)



And here is
the song



Dental Trauma


Not so traumatic right? WRONG! Has anyone ever had to have braces put in?
How about having your braces put in while the orthodontist is eating his lunch and dropping crumbs onto you and into your open mouth, without any gloves or facemask?

THAT'S traumatic.

Monday, 28 June 2010



note to self?
HOY HOY COMRADES!

i do believe it is time for a new theme. this time round, we will be tackling hector's choice of DENTAL TRAUMA. please feel free to go back and generate more delicious content for the old topics though (NEW YORK, FOOD STUFFS, WHEN I GROW UP, I WANT TO BE______, FANTASTIC MACHINES, SONGS).

if you have any suggestions for new topics, just shout me a hollar yo!

dental trauma: first kiss

I
I have bit
my tongue for too long
on this one.

I know that conscience
and the cold bite hard,
and rhyme is a twisting

tongue, is a sound leaf
caught between
two lines of teeth,

but this was torture.

II
Your cigarette
was a lovebite at the night's
cold neck

a brush of teeth along her black
back, a perfect kiss
in the cold air. So when

your lips brushed mine
I could not help but wonder
how,

between the rush
of teenage lust and tooth
and tongue, salivasap,

your lip
managed to trap
itself between my metal brace

and gum, biting
itself into submission
bleeding, suffering, then numb

as kisses became kickboxing
attempts
to escape, save face,

to free your tongue
like a bird of song
from its newfound cage:

my bruising, glinting brace.

welcome to the black parade- my chemical romance



okay, so this isn't exactly an illustration for that song but the idea was heavily ripped off- uh, i mean inspired by- james jean's shit hot artwork for the album http://www.jjeanius.net/images/Illustration/MCRGatefoldPub.jpg

god, that man is a freaking hero.



...

i feel shame.

my body is a cage- arcade fire



oh wow. this is just a little bit emo-tastic. listening to that song got this image of some dude trapped under a layer of skin stuck in my head but i lack the chops to pull it off even halfway decently. waaaah.

MUSIC!

The Headmaster Ritual- The Smiths




Belligerent ghouls run Manchester schools
Spineless swines, cemented Minds


Sir leads the troops, jealous of youth


Same old suit since 1962


Mid-week on the playing fields
Sir thwacks you on the knees


I wanna go home
I don't wanna stay
Give up education
As a bad mistake

Lail Arad, Everyone is moving to Berlin

It’s all going down in East Berlin.She swept her long hair over her shoulder and swayed the table decisively. He looked at her and took a little sip of his cool beer. He'll never be able to fit me in, she thought, between that faded old sofa and the cranky fridge with half-drunk bottles of Weisswein and the hung-up washing and steaming cups of dark tea on the sideboard of the shop. Never, if not tonight.

She thought he'd liked her that day on the U-Bahn. She couldn’t work out what was a memory and what she’d invented. Was he itching to take her bottom lip between his teeth, as she was, and gently bite?

He paid for her drink and winced. “Sorry, my contacts, hang on a sec.” He was so polite, it was exhausting. It was a little cold. She wanted him to warm her up, to put his electrifying fingers on her shoulders and squeeze.

“Got a light?”

“Sure.” He flicked a flame between their lips, briefly. Crumpled lung chrysalis. Was it just breath, or was there something else forming between them, as sweet and flickering as smoke?

Blackberry Sonnet

I love this man, now and for forever. His pupils were split berries, black on
white irises. Her hair was spilt libation on his forehead. She tipped
her liquid lips to his, and drank to the world he'd turned his back on.
She turned and said a silent thanks to the world that had stripped her
of him, that had held his neck crooked across the cliff
and wondered
what the sea tasted like
------------from that great height

-------------------------what bones sound like
--------------------------------------when the whole world sucks them stiff.
She turned, kiss still on mouth, and cursed the world that never really let them be.
As silence rose, she caught sight of his snagged arms, poured earth
over his forehead and turned and fled, weeping
--------------------------------------------------------to the silent sea.

greetings comrades!

there's a new theme a foot and it is SONGS. pick a tune you like and illustrate the shit out of it!

this one's been a long time coming and i hope it gets the old grey matter ticking! if not, please go ahead and revisit our older topics (NEW YORK, FOOD STUFFS, WHEN I GROW UP, I WANT TO BE______, FANTASTIC MACHINES). also, when you upload stuff for this one, could you link via youtube or whatever the song you've taken on? i figure this could be a real neat way us to introduce each other to some choice tunes.

if you've got any ideas for themes or know anyone who wants in on the fun, shout me a hollar, yo!

PEACE!

is it a bird? is it a plane? well, it's TOTALLY NOT A ROCKETEER RIP OFF!



because jet packs are totally pimp, right? urgh, need to slap some colours down on this but i've been super duper busy. will rectify this soon!

also, going to put the shout out on a new topic sometime soon...

aloha comrades!

geeze, dose anyone else feel like they've got a wee bit more time on their hands? anyhoo, figured it would probably be a good idea to put a fresh theme out there as a reminder that this thing's still kicking around. this time, it's FANTASTIC MACHINES, curtosy of fred.

if you have any ideas for a topic for us to tackle, shout us a hollar, yo. here's what's built up in the suggestion box so far:

- 3 panel comic
-illustrate a song
-your heros
-dental trauma
-people we know
-take a book title/ song title/ film title/ lyrics from a song out of content and illustrate it

also, feel free to throw up some doodles based on our ever growing list of old themes (NEW YORK, FOOD STUFFS, WHEN I GROW UP, I WANT TO BE______). some people have made some noise about us maybe putting a zine together at some point, and it would be super fly if we had enough content to make up issues based on a single topic.

hope you're all having a good holiday so far and SEE YOU LATER FOR SOME OXFORD RELATED HI-JINXS!!!

DREAM BIG



when i grow up...

jeeze, way to push the imagination boat out there, alex.

morning all!

ok, so i know we're up to our eyeballs in all this guff right now, but what the hell, right? the theme for now is;

I WANT TO BE A __________ WHEN I GROW UP.

fill that blank with all your creative might! also, feel free to throw up submissions for the previous topics (new york, food stuffs) if there's something you're itching to draw for them.

TALLY-HO!
