Cartoonist Gabrielle Bell is doing watercolor portraits over Skype. They’re tiny and amazing, and $35 I think. This might be the best possible use for Skype, although the scientific research isn’t in yet.




What a great idea. I love it when cartoonists use new technology to update old ways of making dough — painting portraits is almost as old as painting itself, but add the Skype element and you’ve got something new. I’m reminded of when Ray Fenwick adopted an “arts grant” model for drawing in his sketchbook.

"Puzzles and Logic Problems" by Ray Fenwick

woodswoodswoods:

Ray Fenwick is my favourite illustrator. He has a totally singular illustrative voice with an unmatched sense of humour, and his lettering chops are second to none. Earlier this year, I managed to put myself down for the last of his Coffee Money Zines, a project whereby you could donate a title, and a small amount of money (to pay for a notebook, some pencils, and enough coffee to keep the man buzzing happily for a day or so) and receive a wee one-off book in return. It was a pretty perfect solution to micro arts-funding. 
Anyway, I finally got round to uploading a few of my favourite pages from the book, which I titled Puzzles & Logic Problems (Intermediate to Advanced). This one in particular makes me happy in ways I can’t begin to articulate. Thanks, Ray.

A Month of Ray Fenwick = $73.85 (Priceless)

Ray Fenwick comes up with a genius idea:

Little books that act like arts grants.
…The purchase of a CMZ pays for one month’s worth of coffee, and allows me to loiter in the coffee shop from 7 - 8:30 a.m. every weekday while I practice writing. CMZ sponsors get 30 days of little drawings, some good, some not, much like my own notebooks.

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
$22.50 - - 15 X single americanos ($1.50 after tax)
$37.50 - - 15 X double americanos ($2.50 after tax)
$3.85 - - - Price of single notebook
$10.00 - - Shipping
$73.85 total
