I Like Characters is a blog created by artist, Steve Rack. Here is what Steve has to say: “As much as I would like to say something profound about character art in today’s culture, I find it easier to simply say - I like characters. I am a collector of things, and ILikeCharacters.com allows me to indulge myself! As soon as I schedule blog posts for the coming month, my inbox soon fills back up with new character submissions! The more the merrier! If anything, I am much grateful for how people have really embraced the site and made it their own. The site has become really popular real quick - all you have to do is google character art and boom there it is!”
“We have published some titles which to present our visual vision of some classic tales from the oral tradition, like “Y recuerda …” is a interpretation without text of the tale of “Little Red Riding Hood”, also “Hansel and Gretel”. “A Russian Blonde” is a fun version of “Goldilocks and the 3 Bears” at the time of Perestroika in Russia. “Money” is another book, the result of the interpretation of brazilian illustrator Flavio Morais of the children dreams about money. Another book “2″ which is like a playing cards where the random will create stories that can explain the concepts of duality and mourning, the friends and enemies, couples and bad couples. And the last one we have published, “La luna sabe a pescao” is a picture book that it’s reads like a poem, play to transforming things is a game that ever likes to children. This book could be read in many ways.”
“Friends, countrymen, kinsfolk, plebeians, it’s time to roll up your sleeves, get down with it and put your brains in gear. Last week the Treasury Department unveiled the new $100 bill. What a tragic, pathetic, anachronistic failure. Really, we can do better than this. And we must.”
“We believe, we The People, need to retaliate, rise to the challenge and give these bureaucrats a licking. So we are pleased to announce the return of our annual Dollar ReDe$ign Competition for the second year in a row. But this time the stakes are higher, the prizes are substantial, but the objective is still the same: rebrand, rebuild and revive our mighty US economy.”
