My Pic is on an Album Cover!

    My little pic is the stickman gunslinger...

    On a real CD!

    I have had a very good day.

    No.  I'm not suddenly rich or famous.  But I remember what "happy" feels like.

    The CD is by someone called Clay Harper (of the Coolies) - he's on Wiki! 


    http://s3.hubimg.com/u/7142870_f248.jpg

    Oh yeah.  He did ask me to draw it for him so it wasn't even nicked! Gave me a credit too on the back "Stick drawing by Mark Ewbie". I'm in heaven.

        No, you are too humble.  I remember you had a "scream" pic that also gained you some notoriety.  Be proud!  I sure would be.

          Thanks, and.. I had forgotten that.  I think more time drawing and less time worrying about bloody traffic would be good.

      Mark Ewbieposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      You know, that is a cool idea.  Maybe madness, but say someone offered these bands a design, and they thought "yeah" and then...

      Dreaming is fun.

      edit.  I'm getting carried away...

    Years from now, when the Ewbie Stickman is as famous as Gumby and you're living large on royalties, you will look back on today and likely say two things:
    1. Thank you, Hub Pages, for always believing in me (even if my earnings did not always reflect your adoration), and
    2. F you, Google!

    smile

    Seriously. Big, big congrats to you!

    Congratulations on this, it could lead to more people requesting your work in future.

    I like the new profile drawing,  I thought - someone with big cupcakes must have posed for that.

    Maybe you will start to get requests for E-book illustrations.

    You could have a go at selling cards, posters etc. with your stick people, on somewhere like Zazzle.

    1. Mark Ewbie profile image89
      Mark Ewbieposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Lol - at someone posing.  One day maybe.  "Oh yes, I'm an artist - now get your clothes off".

      As for Zazzle.  As always I have a mountain of work ahead of me and all I do is dream.

    Well, EW, now that you are pleasantly semi-famous, I must now unfollow you. smile Seriously though, congratulations, you deserve it. Now you just need to make it just as big or bigger as a writer. smile

        Mark, I hope you didn't take my "funny" remark to be sarcastic or that I think getting your stuff on a CD wasn't a big deal. If it was me, I would feel AWESOME.
