Description One of the few jokes I can remember, is a little juvenile and silly, but is clever in the sense it has two endings. So you can fool anyone who tries to guess, by giving the alternative answer. This image tries to draw these two aspects of the jokes into a clever and socially political images.The jokes goes something like; What is black and white, and read (red) all over? The two possible answers are, A Newspaper, and/or a sunburnt penguin. The image although based on a joke, shows in some truth, an issue that is not funny. The continued neglect of the planet by humans.The headline was set to help highlight this issues, and the effect it has on the environment and fellow earthlings.The design of the cover is a parody of my favourite newspaper, the Guardian.If you'd like to buy the first book, you can see it here: http://www.blurb.com/b/3164942-animal-behaviourIf you'd like to see the process of this drawing you can view it here: http://www.behance.net/wip/94113/203771
Rob Snow, Thessaloniki Member Since January 2012 Artist Statement INGREDIENTS
1 creative person, slightly matured 2 tablespoons aptitude 1 piece of aesthetic flavoring 6lbs hard work and sweat 4 ideas more than most salt of the earth to taste
Take a creative person and stir in the aptitude thoroughly, from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavoring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas. The more the better, and finally as all is cooking, a pinch of salt of the earth to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
