It's Time

So... my bad!  I signed up to help Jeremy Hawkins promote his new series of art/design books and I feel awful because I missed my day.  There's no excuse, I just plain missed it.  So sorry Jeremy!  

Anyway read on to hear more about his unique series of books.

It's a four book series 40 pages each and it is the art/design from things I had designed over the years. It's a mish-mash of things that I had seen in my head... and some are future designs that will become shirts. Places I wanted to go artistically as you travel from where I was to where I am now. Is it great journey!  Titles came from the idea of time "12:34, 35, 36 and 37” seems that is when my best ideas came to me... day or night. It's funny I never considered myself a "writer" just a man who likes to paint a canvas if it be words or my art/design.

Jeremy's books, Twelve-Thirty-Four, Twelve-Thirty-Five, Twelve-Thirty-Six and Twelve-Thirty-Seven are a fantastic collection of unique art.  His work runs the gamut from movie inspired, where some of our favorite characters are portrayed with a fresh perspective, to cute and funny to scary. There is something for everyone here.       

Now here's Jeremy to tell us a little bit about some things he's noticed.  

What do these all have in common; The Wedding Singer, The Blues Brothers, Anchorman, 40 year Old Virgin, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Armageddon, Top Gun? That’s right someone sings someone else’s song in a movie and some you know… some you don’t. I would like to share a mix of stuff that I could think off the top of my head and then I would like to hear some of yours that you have got that would fit. Thank you for letting play this with you and to Kathryn for playing host here today, so can you think of any more?

Support Jeremy and enjoy his take on the world.

Again, Jeremy I'm so sorry that I messed up!  I hope your launch is super successful!



  1. Lost that Lovin’ Feeling was done by the Righteous Brothers before Hall and Oats. Love Stinks can only be the J. Geils Band. Age of Aquarius was done for the 1967 musical and redone two years later by The 5th Dimension. (Picked that one up from a Battle of the Bands recent post!) And John Denver did the original version of Leaving on a Jet Plane.
    Yeah, I know a scary amount of music.
    I'm sure Jeremy will forgive you for being late.

  2. Wow Alex! The only one I knew was Lost that Lovin' Feeling.

  3. Goodnight Nurse!
    Alex is music monster.
    Does The Bodyguard Count?
