Lou Gehrig, The Thinker, and Youtube!

What do Lou Gehrig, Auguste Rodin‘s The Thinker, and Youtube have in common? Not much, until now!

I’ve had a Youtube channel that I’ve done nothing with for ages. I keep threatening to make animations or tutorials or who knows what, and then I don’t. But I’m going to try and start branching out a bit so I wanted to make sure I knew how to upload videos and link them to various other social networking sites. To that end, I needed to come up with a funny in order to have something to post… and that’s where this comes in…

I was thinking (see what I did there) about Lou Gehrig’s famous speech, and Rodin’s famous sculpture popped into my mind. A little creative editing with the actual soundtrack and I separated out the beginning from the ending so that I could leave that little bit of silence to let the joke settle in… used a little Photoshop magic to remove Lou Gehrig and replace him with the sculpture, and there you have it! It’s one of those things that technically works without the audio, but I feel like the audio really drives the joke home… so it made for a nice test subject for my new old Youtube channel.

In the future, I plan on doing some animations with voices and sounds and all that cool stuff… and perhaps some instructional/tutorial videos as well. Who knows what might pop into my weird mind. If you like anything at all I do here, please check out and subscribe to my Youtube channel and keep your eyes peeled!

Ghost in the Candy Shell

Once again, one of those ideas popped into my head and I was amazed to be unable to find any evidence of it already having been done… so I did it last night, just in time for April Fool’s Day!

A nice mashup of everyone’s favorite green lady M & M and the Ghost in the Shell. Recent promotions for the new live-action movie, starring Scarlett Johansson, are what got this idea going. Truth be told, though, the parody here is drawn from the original anime movie poster design more so than anything to do with the modern remake.

I intentionally skimped on the cityscape at the bottom, it’s just a silhouette to set the stage and to honor the layout of the original poster design. The shades rest a little low on M’s face, ‘cause she doesn’t seem to have a nose! 🙂 I also like the simple repeating pattern I came up with for the background to echo the simulated tech background of the original poster.

Please let me know what you think, and remember, if you’d like an original commission by me or would like to hire me as an Illustrator, please use the Contact page and let me know as much as you can about your request.

*Facetime comes in handy when you need something, or when you want to engage someone else in a bit! 🙂 If only Liam Neeson‘s character had that in that movie, his search would have been a whole lot easier, no?

*So, yeah… I realize that the Kellyanne Conway gag is only relevant right now and will soon be a dated reference… but I countered that by also making a Get Smart gag that is already an even more dated reference… you’re welcome! 🙂
