automobiles in a jam

Hi all,

After creating the planes piece (alas, our planes were no match for their mighty dust) I have decided to make this into a series of work titled 'planes, trains & automobiles' so here is the new automobiles one that i finished working on yesterday.

only got to work on the trains one now and possibly a combination of a three with maybe one with some ships thrown in for good measure.

but, there's one more thing...

and that is you can now buy this print from society6, here's my store page http://scottbalmer.society6.com/store . This one is only available for just now but there will be more illustrations added over the next few weeks.

but thats not it, you can also get this image as an ipod/iphone skin or even a laptop skin.

And once I have altered some pieces, there will be more merchandise in different forms to come!

Once its all been set up i'll let you know.

the mis-adventures of ernie space-face

This one was sitting waiting to be finished for about a week in a very early form of just the large space like cranium and an orange triangle representing the body. I think the gap for finishing this guy off was due to me changing what situation I wanted him to be in.

In the beginning, I wanted him to be holding his head as if he was a bit angsty because he has space for a face. He's still a bit in this one but its changed to more of a school classroom type of setting. He's more in the teenage age bracket in the phase of spots, broken voices and the rest that goes with it.

I was going to add a caption such as 'in the test of despair' or something like that where he's trying to get out of sitting a test by pretending to be ill. But then I'd have to make it into some form of a graphic novel (which is something i might do.) but we'll see.
