Burnin' Till the Break of Day

"Give me oil in my lamp, keep me burnin' burnin' burnin'
Give me oil in my lamp, I pray!
Give me oil in my lamp, keep me burnin' burnin' burnin'
Keep me burnin' 'til the break of day!"

~ "Give Me Oil in my Lamp", religious children's song


This time of year, events and to-do lists and schedules invariably fill the calendar more and more until one is immersed in a maelstrom of activity -- and I am looking forward to it.  Between a new book club and t-shirt designs and sporting events and weddings and traveling and freelance gigs, things are shaping up to make this a very busy season; burnin' the candle at both ends always makes for fun times!


The Illustration Friday theme this week is "Burning", which coincides nicely with my Shirt.Woot entry this week -- a mighty robot terrorizes Blockopolis as its denizens flee and the city burns. 


My Chupacabra shirt, "Goat Sucker", is up for voting at Threadless; the goats need votes!



These are posters I did recently for a client -- the Christmas tree design will actually be blown up to a full-size poster, which is pretty nifty.

Anne, I love all your pictures! The Robotron one should be a CD cover - seriously, someone needs to pick this up! The sense of Chupacapra as a fireside yarn spun by goats is really amusing. Your use of dark backgrounds to foreground the coloured shapes is first class and ideal for t-shirts. Fantastic!
