Happy Halloween! Here are two kids trick or treating as Victor Frankenstein and Cesar Millan.
Pen and pencil on paper, coloured in photoshop.
I’ve been playing around with this sketch in Photoshop and its nearly finished. Its two kids dressed up as Victor Frankenstein and the dog whisperer playing trick or treat with some monstrous pets as costume accessories. It might have been funnier in my head but either way I’ll have the final one finished up for tomorrow. Check it out, if you dare… muwhahaha!
Monster dry point in red, flipped and clipped in Photoshop. This one definitely turned out the best of the lot.
Its coming up to Halloween so why not do a dry point print of a monster creeping out of a wardrobe? Dry point is my favorite print method, it takes a long time to scratch into the plastic and ink it all up but its worth it, I’m definitely going to play about more with this type of printing.
Another blue over red srceen print. This one hurts my eyes a little but I still think it looks pretty cool. I want to see if 3D glasses will work with it.
So I’ve been going to evening print courses and here is the majority of what I have made in my four sessions of going. Its been amazing getting to use a shed load of equipment rather than just sitting at my desk. So far I’ve experimented with screen print, dry point and mono print.
humanfungus asked: I love samurai squid. I absolutely love the idea, character, the everything. *suggestion* more animal/warrior mashups. they are so RAD. and besides that all of your art RULES. like serious badassery
Thanks man! Thats really nice to hear, and I’m glad you like all my Norse mythology stuff too. Funnily enough, my friends boyfriend is studying game design and may be using Samurai Squid for one of his projects. So soon he could be transformed into a living breathing 3D character which would be unbelievably cool! I guess I could come up with a few villains for him to fight. Maybe he could do battle with the sea snail shogun, or even nautilus ninjas!
Black and white version of my business card. This would be a lot cheaper to print so I think I’m going to have a standard business card as well as a limited edition fancy one for when I really want to show off. This one does look pretty slick though.
Anonymous asked: Great idea for business cards, I love how they look too but from personal experience printing hundreds of colored cards can be very expensive. Try tones of grey, it'll still look amazing and cut back on cost by a LOT. ;) x
That is a very good point, I’ll have a go at making one just on the grey scale. Although now I think about it, a solution to that problem could be to screen print multiple circles of colour on an A4 sheet then run it through the printer, and have the grey scale image on top. That would mean at 13 A4 pages would work out to just over 50 cards and that would mean I could have colour printing with black and white prices. Although I don’t think that I would have the patience to make any more than that. I think I could design two cards, a fancy fold up one in the envelope when I need to be flashy, and a standard business card shape for general purpose. Thanks! You made me think about things I hadn’t before and I’m very happy you like the design!
I thought these little mini mes would be cool for fold out business card inside mini envelopes, or with additional writing, even a small poster. I just cant decide what colours I’d like.
Here are the boys. Little Scrappy’s training has been going really well and I think that he’ll soon be on par with Ram. It’s a shame they aren’t called Timon and Pumba. I need to draw them tonight when they’re all curled up together.
