Have you ever seen the movie One Crazy Summer? I used to love that movie when I was a kid. That’s kind of been the story of my summer this year, only with less John Cusack, Demi Moore, bunny drawings, Ferraris, Bobcat Goldthwait, ok…that was a terrible example.
What I should say is, a lot has happened over the summer. The most significant being the launch of Common Oddities LLC, a creative services business that includes Provision Books and Odd Mr T. As a result, Odd Mr T (that’s me) has increased in scope to now include not only furniture, but also graphic art geared toward books and publishing. Don’t worry, the art degree has me covered in both 3-D and 2-D media. Did I ever tell you about the time I majored in Graphic Design? Probably not. Good bet if I stuck with it, I wouldn’t be writing this right now. Regardless, our first project out the door is Moon Dust Castles. It’s a book featuring four short stories written by Jessica E Thomas and featuring cover art and a few illustrations from…wait for it…Odd Mr T. (you can buy it here, by the way: BUY NOW)
There is plenty more in the pipeline for us and I’ll hopefully get around to updating the next time something noteworthy happens. Next week, perhaps? We shall see.
On a completely unrelated, yet absolutely relevant side note, I’ve been contemplating writing and illustrating a children’s book. Before I do, though, I’d like to know, would you buy one? See the poll below.
