Artist Sam Brown draws simple, child-like illustrations from phrases that people email him. Some are inspiring, some sweet, some sad. A few make a play on the words or language (which I love) such as “I love long baths.” Those particularly appeal to me, and probably to many of us who love words and language.
I love long baths by Sam Brown, explodingdog.com
And a few incorporate writing, such as “I’m sick of writing” (but I keep thinking). I can relate; I’ll bet many of us writers can. 🙂
I like the comments Sam adds in; many times it changes the meaning of the phrase or adds to it.
I’m Sick of Writing by Sam Brown, explodingdog.com
The images are simple and creative, and have an interesting take on the words. Just looking through them may inspire creativity in you. There are a few violent ones, so if you don’t like violence, be prepared. And the book ones I found weren’t particularly positive about books, which I found disappointing. But the writer one was lovely.
You can participate by sending Sam your own phrase for him to draw.
You can also purchase prints of the drawings, or various books and t-shirts.
