More regrettable incidents in a life filled with bitter remorse.

David Fullarton makes pictures with words on them.

Illustrative goings on.

As always I have been remiss on my updates. I have, however, managed to fit a bit of paid illustration work into my hectic procrastination schedule. As well providing me with deep creative fulfillment this allows me to put food on my families plates and a roof over their heads. And it has also allowed my 7 year old son to give up his job as a chimney sweep and return to school.

Here’s a couple of the latest efforts. First up, for ‘Go’, the inflight magazine of AirTran, an illustration for an article about ‘Literary Death Matches’, which sound fascinating but are really just literary readings with some gimmicky showmanship added to make them slightly less tedious.

Extreme Literary Events are all the rage. Apparently.

Next we have an illustration for an Alumni magazine published by Suffolk University in Boston. This one was for an article in which the author was bemoaning the fact that she had turned in a below par performance as a guest on Oprah’s TV chat show. Knowing that she was feeling bad about messing up her 15 minutes of fame, her husband then did what any caring partner would do in those circumstances. He sent her a fake letter, supposedly from Oprah’s production company, stating that she would not be welcome back on the Oprah Show because her performance had been so stilted. The author was not pleased.

Taunted by the Most Powerful Woman on TV.

I laughed. I cried, I drew a picture.
