The Kickstarter for my illustrated edition of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz is live! If you’d like to support this project, and/or get a copy of the hardcover book of your very own, I hope you’ll check it out!
I’ve made 24 full-page illustrations and around 70 spot illustrations to go throughout the complete original text, in a 192-page book. Most of them have been posted on this tumblr. I’ve tried to support the text without distracting from it, and I’ve emphasized the sense of being lost in a strange, colorful place. I’m really happy with how it’s turned out so far, and having it as a nice printed book has always been an exciting possibility!! It is looking like a thing that will probably happen, thanks to Make That Thing and YOU YOU YOU
This looks awesome Evan! I backed it!
Hi, we shot this back in August and now the test of how easy/hard it is to play Super Mario Bros. 3 while riding a roller coaster is available for all to see. Give it a look! Tell some friends or something! Like follow and subscribe! Do 15 jumping jacks and spell your name backwards! Eat three pancakes and spend the rest of the evening laid out on the couch!
Leaf bug (Phyllium giganteum)
The constant wobbling as they move is a part of their disguise, making it seem as though the “leaf” is only moving because of a light breeze.
If you blow on one it will also shake around in the hopes of matching any actual surrounding leaves
What I see
Civil unrest in response to the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., has received the lion’s share of media coverage. But as protests continus, the authorities’ response has increasingly looked less like police action and more like a crackdown in a war zone.
