growing up with luke as my older brother was pretty fucking awesome!
growing up with luke as my older brother was like growing up with anyone for your older brother: he was always right. he was bossy and told me what to do, even though i would clearly tell him that he was "not the boss of me." but, all that aside, luke was pretty awesome and generous as well, and as a kid i would always look at his doodles and attempt to copy them and try to make the kids in my class think i was awesome at drawing.
i think you all are bright enough to know where this is going.... a collaboration between me and luke:
actually, this collaboration is luke testing out a "template" sketch project. the idea being, luke provides a template:
and YOU fill it in however you see fit. whaddya think?
"Smuggles" the name of our collaboration was a true collaboration. He sketched out the bear form, and I started with putting in little things here and there like glasses, a sweater, and a pipe. Then Luke started filling it out some more. And then I added the New Yorker, because what else would Smuggles read?
