Weeble Wednesday: Rey Magdael
Wednesday, September 1st, 2010
My good friend Rey & I shared a hotel room at a gaming con (not like that! sheesh), and as part of my half of the room expenses, he decided to be a cartoon. Art for hotel room, awesome! He was too lazy to tell me anything about what specifics he wanted, so I chose his props for him. Yes, this is one of the advantages of being someone I actually know in Real Life — surprise extras!
His iPhone is red because it’s got a skin on it — one he desperately needs for his coworkers, a reproduction of the “Keep Calm and Carry On” posters, and of course a Christmas present from me.
We had fun picking out the skin color for him, I made a bunch of lines on a little strip of paper and wrapped it around his arm. We were both amused that the Copic marker that matched best was called “Orientale.” It’s especially funny because their “Barely Beige” is distinctly pinker than “Baby Skin Pink,” so I rarely trust the names to be descriptive or useful. Score one for Japan, I guess!
