The internet is a wonderful place. Seriously, I love it so much. I started following smart funny lady Amanda Brooke Perrin on Instagram years ago, and due to some sort of miraculous act of the gods, she followed me back. We met IRL in the summer of 2014 when Amanda commissioned me to do a watercolour painting of cats incorporating the phrase “Don’t be a baby bitch” for another smart funny lady Anne T. Donahue.
Amanda Brooke Perrin is launching her first ever album “AKA Randy” today! I attended the stand-up show at which the album was recorded, so I can personally vouch that it is very very very good. You can probably hear me laughing like a hyena at some point in it. And last but not least, I did her album art. So considering all of these things, it only made sense to dedicate a post to her album.
Amanda was a ton of fun to work with. She literally said “I have a photo of myself, can you draw a bunch of things I like around it?” and so yup, that’s what I did. No further explanation for the meaning behind this particular illustration needed.
Here are some miscellaneous other things from her list that I didn’t have room to include, but she also likes:
- Peter Dinklage
- Powerful women
- Hot dogs
- Celebrity Crushes (Michael Keaton, Ryan Gosling, Peter Dinklage again)
- Charcuterie boards (Please note that I did, however, include cheese)
- Social anxiety
All good things! You can buy her album on iTunes and Spotify.
