COAT OF SMILES, parody art of iconic symbols. A duck's hat, a mouse's ears and a smiling yellow button. Three iconic things brought together in one artwork.

This is where the inspiration came from btw:

The Inner Workings of The XR-3000 Z (or why the butterfly became a jetbug)

This is a follow to the last post: May I introduce Mr. Drummond to you? He loves btw hiding in letterboxes, too.

This work-in-progress chart I put together for my recent posting at The Art Center blog:

Here is an update in order to put us all in the right mood for the Nemoland event 2010 in Florence, Italy: Here is a brilliantly hand-drawn Rolo commerical from the mid-80s animated by this year's Nemoland honoree Eric Goldberg (I'll be there too, to host a workshop but principally to marvel at Eric Goldberg's talks and workshops):

The ACME Corp.'s Super Mind's Eye XR-3000 Z Delta Bravo (or the way how I look at things)

I felt like putting up a new blog header. Of course with a (typical of me) "built-in" reference to Ria Irvin's Eustace Tilley (The New Yorker magazine's iconic corporate character). This here started btw as a scratchy piece I picked out of a pile of StarDucks ballpoint test sketches.

When I come to consider it, my machines - all of them - have a strong reference to André Franquin's mad vehicles and machines...

This fake cover can fall in the category "The Duckish Face of Eustace Tilley":

This is more adequate, I guess:

How To Snitch The Brain of Eric Goldberg And Record It On A Steak

Okay, here's my plan: What is sure is that Disney's Eric Goldberg will come to Florence in May to accept the Nemoland Award 2010. As last year's honoree, I will be there, too. So far, so good. Then, during the award giving ceremony, when everbody will be distracted by this very moment, I'll mount the ACME XR Brain Copy 3000 (with the latest 6 Gigahertz StarDucks Motorpunk chip inside) and record Eric Goldberg's knowledge, skills and talents on one of those huge Fiorentina Steaks. Immediately afterwards, I'll barbecue and scarf it down and become the world's first one-man band feature film production studio! Darned good idea, no?
