Daily Orange 🍊. The starfish. From my daily orange series where I draw something orange each day using a sharpie on a post-it note. The starfish is a badass predator of shallow water, without remorse. Think you can kill it by ripping it's arm off? Think again, it will grow right back and come at you with sass and an insatiable desire to eat you (if you're a mollusk or clam). There's 1000s of variants of star fish and they can live up to 30 years. There's a few especially badass starfish that are poisonous to humans, one being known as "Crown of Thorns". Its title alone is enough to know that it would be unwise to consider crossing. The star fish, a mighty Orange of the Ocean.

Daily orange. A captivating object for today's feature, the humble traffic cone. An exciting and treasured object to students and road safety aware professionals alike. "Often cone shaped" they were invented by Charles D. Scanlon in early 1900s, one of the true health and safety heroes of our time. Hand drawn illustration from my (Richard Stelmach), series of Daily Orange illustrations on orange post-it notes.

f you were a kid the 90s, you'll remember that tango man is a bald, tubby, almost fully naked orange man who would appear whilst someone drank orange Tango. He would then proceed to slap the person in the face and shout "you've been tangoed", apparently personifying the sensation of drinking Tango. He was an intolerable prick. Unfortunately many kids were inspired by his sadistic actions and consequently ran around slapping other kids in the face. Shortly after, the ad was banned. Hopefully tango man ended up in jail for assault and indecent exposure.

Daily orange 🍊. Each day I draw something that is orange on a post-it note, using a Sharpie. Today's orange takes us into the animal kingdom, featuring one of the most admired orange animals in the world, the fox. The fox must have always been admired by man as it features in a native American creation theory, revered as a God and in countless folklores and tales. The fox is crafty and adaptable as well as aesthetically impressive and majestic. It's orange fur helps as camouflage of course. There is no witty statement about the fox, it is just a great orange that is to be respected and admired. The only profound thing to ponder is, why don't animals have green fur?

Featuring distinctly orange skin which could be likened to that of Donald Trump, Ernie from Sesame Street, is today's notable orange entity. Ernie seems to plague Bert's life by annoying antics such as "keeping Bert awake at night", by playing the drums, saxophone, counting or incessantly pestering him to play against his will. As Ernie baths, he becomes obsessed with a rubber duck, leading him to sing, no doubt ruining any moment of peace Bert wished for. Bert and Ernie's mismatched bromance often leads to a misperception of their sexuality. In reality they're a couple of bros who have each others backs. Classic Orange.

I miss the days of the 35mm film camera. I loved the excitement of finally seeing my finished photos printed out after snapping a roll of 24 shots. I drew a camera that belonged to my grandpa in my sketchbook, then I turned it into artwork for t-shirts. Old school nostalgia for sure!
