Summer Myths with Jillian Tamaki

This past Friday I found out about a contest Jillian Tamaki had started to raise money for charity and to promote a new book on Irish mythology  she’s illustrated. The entrants were to donate to UNICEF and/or submit an image concerning a summer myth and the winners got copies of her lushly illustrated tomes and other goodies. I didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity so I challenged myself to make it a weekend project as the deadline was a few days away. I got a lot of great inspiration from my friends while laying out on Carson beach on Saturday and quickly assembled a one-page about the myth that students actually complete their summer reading assignments. Give her your traffic at the above link to see the winning pieces and the honorable mentions, of which my piece is a part of.

I’ll post the piece on this blog in a few days but in the mean time here’s some super creepy architectural detail I came across walking to the T one night after watching the new X-Men movie at the Boston Common Cinema.

I think this is actually the Key of Solomon, or one of the keys. I remember seeing this years ago when I moved to Boston. Super creepy but super awesome. Would make a gnarly tattoo.

yah this thing is sinister-looking for real. I try not to look directly at it.
