The Big Ben.

Following the London pilgrimage, the group is making a book. As the Resident Illustration Buddy, I volunteered to paint the cover. It's done in Painter, a program that allows me to paint when I don't feel like moving four feet to my left to my actual work desk.

The Big Chill

Two things:

1) We lost the bid for Costner's logo. This is not particularly surprising, given the studio's stated preference for a competitor's work early on in the process. So it goes.

2) I won't be adding anymore of my Illustration projects to this blog until they're finished, which, by the grim, ineluctable hand of fate will be in two weeks regardless of, well, anything. I may try to post some sketch book stuff in the meantime.

Wish me luck, all. To my illustration comrades:  this will be our finest hour. Or a bunch of pretty okay days, more than likely. Godspeed.

Colonel Kurtz

Found this artifact nestled between strata of ancient projects earlier. Way back in High School, I made my first stab at Archetype, back when it was called Archetype: Precursor, which is sort of a really terrible name for something that isn't a prequel of any kind. This scene contains a really early version of Tapaesan Isuko, right, and his sister, who may or may not have had a name at one point in history. She was later written out of the story for having terrifying hot dog fingers.
I am not certain how Tapaesan's hair works. Presumably, he must staple the side bits on.

(the horror...)

Perfect Attendance

All fourteen of my illustra-doodles for the Illustration project. These are irrationally fun to make.

(For the last time, he isn't a robot. Not even a little bit.)
(This guy has a squid for a hat. Fashionable.)
(Kids, smoking isn't cool.)
