This week’s episode (a couple days late, sorry): we recap the first half of our UK/Ireland tour; a drunken Irishman molests Jonathan Coulton; a Paltrowian look at Paul as an angry drunk; haggis and Irn-Bru;
Finally: a couple months ago, a couple blind listeners asked us to find a creative way for them to become new members of the Brigade of Minions. We decided that you, our listeners/other Minions, should illustrate them (in any way you like), based on their descriptions of themselves. Here are those descriptions:
@dave728nc: Dave is a youthful 47, dark hair with some gray, average build with a ready smile and cherubic good looks. A computer consultant by day, and martial artist superhero by night, his motto is, “If the computers don’t do what I tell them to do, I kick them until they cooperate.” He has very few Twitter followers, and is never shy about shameless groveling for more.
@CarolinaWolfie: So yeah, this is me, @CarolinaWolfie. So first, as my user name kind of implies, I’m a dog person. I travel with Simba, a black Labrador service dog. She’s way up there on the cute scale. She’s tiny, but don’t let that fool you. She’s kind of like me, mostly quiet with occasional bursts of energy and affection. I have two kids–both boys–and they are both awesome young men. I have blond hair and hazel eyes. And that’s as much as you’re getting on that score, but if you offer me the right incentive things could change.
Use the above two descriptions, either literally or as a jumping-off point, as a basis for illustrating either or both of them. You can submit links to your completed work in the comments section of this post. We will choose our favorite(s) as their official Brigade of Minions submission photos. Also, if the winning illustrator(s) are existing Minions, they will receive a special award designation.
AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION ALERT: Based upon their descriptions above, illustrate one or both of our two new “wannabe” Minions; also, describe Paul had he gone the “angry drunk” route.
