This drawing is a pep-talk for myself. Ever since I started teaching in the mornings I’ve been struggling to remain productive the rest of the day. I’ve always been a night person and I am having a lot of trouble making these mornings work. Anyone have any tips?
After Parry Gripp had seen the drawing I did that was inspired by his Best Burrito song, he asked me to design a shirt for him. I decided to work in some of the crazy characters in his amazing songs. I wanted to make the shirt as bright, vibrant and playful as his music. If you aren’t familiar with his music dive in here!: Song Of The Week / Nerf Herder
