WAY OH WAY OH.

Egyptian Wallpaper.

There's been a lot of black and white since I posted that Click Rush design from May, so here's a little something I made last night to bring back some color.

Jordie Bellaire (fellow art nerd from high school, now RSAD illustrator) invited me to join the new Doodles & More Sh!t blog. This week's theme is Egypt, which I was all about in first grade. I mean, I still like ancient Egypt but, damn, my friends and I were hardcore for Tut back then. Anyway, I used this as an excuse to do something both pin-up-y and historically way-inaccurate (underwire bras were not invented until Egypt became a province of Rome).

This is actually a quarter of the initial illustration, because I was inking with a brush again (unfamiliar territory) and didn't care for the rest of it. So, to make the best of the weird, horizontal cropping, I've turned this into a wallpaper. I even included one for iPhones. In fact, they get more midriff and mummy. Just pretend it's a gift to my readers for suffering through my ramblings and sporadic posting. Now, select your size:

1024 x 768 / 1280 x 1024 / 1440 x 900 / 1920 x 1200 / iPhone

  2. Wasn't it 4th grade when we did all that Ancient Egypt stuff in Merriwether's class? Bet she'd be pretty thrilled to hear what you're up to now.

  3. She is all up on Mummy Mum Muggy.

    And Kathryn, I thought it was first, but you may be right. But then again, Merriwether had a few things she super-loved and maintained throughout all those years. Gifted class is just an Ancient Egyptian-y/amethyst haze.
