Don’t forget to vote!

3 Nov

Hey, guess what I did this week?

…No, go ahead and guess. I’ll wait.

If you guessed “played video games”, “made comics”, or “drank too much coffee”, you are correct! However, if you guessed “voted”, you are also correct!

OMG BALLOT

I would’ve taken a picture with the actual ballot, not just the stub, but I was in a big hurry to get it to the post office.

Anyway, I really hope y’all are planning to exercise your right to vote this Tuesday! Here are a few reasons why:

1) It’s the responsible thing to do.

2) No matter what party you’re voting for, there are a lot of important issues on the table this year. You’re not only picking a president, you’re choosing local and state politicians and laws, too. (Especially if you’re from California–what I got in the mail was more like a short choose-your-own-adventure story than a ballot!)

3) Lots of businesses will give you free things on Election Day if you show them your “I Voted” sticker. I don’t know if a voting stub like mine will do the trick as well, but I’m sure as hell gonna try.

And if all that isn’t enough incentive, here’s something to help remind you:

Please don't forget to vote!

If you have a ballot like the letter E up there, remember not to follow my example and fill your ovals completely. And if you have a ballot like the letter O, you may want to (at least temporarily) move out of Florida. This election is important, after all.

(By the way, I used paper texture #89 from S3PTIC-STOCK‘s lovely set of paper textures for the background.)

Two very different species.

This week has been a delightful balancing act between long stints of job hunting/city exploring and marathoning Mad Men while we draw. I’m still pushing myself to experiment with more all-digital work–plus watching all this Mad Men and seeing all these hip Brooklyn girls has gotten me all fashion-inspired–so I dusted off my copy of Illustrator and gave it a whirl. Here’s the result:

Mad Men and Brooklyn Girls

This was actually a lot of fun! I’m proud of the end result–particularly the back foot of each girl. I think this was ultimately a lot more efficient than my all-Photoshop extravaganza last week. It took a lot of time, but I think I made bigger strides in what I’m able to do with Illustrator and without outlining or sketching the figures first. I’d like to do a couple more like this, I think. Maybe some fan art is in order?
