IF: Stay

Normally I would add this with the other sketch pages on the twitter feed but for this instance I wanted to add this one in for this week's Illustration Friday theme. Still enjoying these sketch pages.

New Illustration- Basta Bunga Bunga

I read this article in the New Yorker a couple of weeks ago and was sorely disappointed that it had a photo-montage accompanying it instead of an illustration. I am certain that the story would have been perfect for someone like John Cuneo.

At any rate, I took it upon myself to mak an illustration for the piece, which involves the frivolous misadventures and sexual escapades of the current Italian Prime Minister. Wanted to post this asap, but hope to update this with sketches and some more process later today. Had a lot fun with the armor- which is usual for me.

Some Recent Warmups/ Experiments

Thought I would share with you all some recent warm-up sketches/color studies I have been doing. I've been wanting to practice better color-relations and have been especially influenced by old cartoons like Mission Hill and Doug lately.
I always enjoy the graphic results of using flat colors, and this lets me explore interesting patterns too. I've been posting these almost daily over on my twitter feed, and hope to keep doing so as time allows.

Summer Myth Illo

Had some free time last week and put together this illustration for a contest Jillian Tamaki had over at her blog. The theme was "summer myth" which of course fit perfectly with some recent sasquatches I illustrated.

Hope you all enjoy.
