hot dog stand

drawergeeks topic this week was hotdog stand. i owe jen for helping me come up with this idea:


bands i’m really into right now: bloc party! i still remember has been my catchy fun song of the summer. i’m so late catching on to this band and i have no idea why. their music is highly addictive. as is wolf parade’s! i’ll believe in anything has been stuck in my head for over a week now!

and at work this morning, someone brought in cupcakes with cow sprinkles. i didn’t even know they made cow sprinkles! they taste just like regular sprinkles but better because they are shaped like cows.

hooray for fridays!

    Nice! Hot dog will never be the same after this.
    I like the colors you have started to use, the oldyello-blackNwhite-colored pictures.

    Genius interpretation!

    Mine’s still sitting on my desk waiting to be photoshopped for color. All week I’ve sworn each night that I’d get to it and now it’s Friday with nada to show. Alas.

    My summer fun song has been Ashley MacIsaac’s “Love ’em.” Something about that chorus just gets in my head.

    All this week I’ve taken advantage of the convertible weather to lower the top and blast Her Space Holiday’s “The Young Machines” – you might consider checking out some online samples, it kinda fits in with your tastes I think.

    Mike, GREAT drawing! I don’t know if you meant it, but the “motion” lines at the base of the heart look like the motion lines of the dog, as if it were wagging its tail! Fun, fun, fun!!!

    Man, you rocked this week OUT!
    Fantastic take on the topic.
    You and Bryan had my favorite submissions I think.
    Nice work.

    Yeah, this is big time fun. The squiggles are groovy, the dog is cute, and the colors are Buffalogicious.

    You win!

    Ooh, I love this! You’ve really got a way with gesture, Mike. The way he’s patiently (but eagerly) sitting there with his little paws folded… it says so much. Really clever!
