IF: Worn

Poor little blue girl, always falling for the wrong guy. But what else do you expect from a girl who has always worn her heart on her sleeve?

This was actually based off an old illustration that I decided to ink and update a bit. Here is what the original sketch looked like.

Also, I wanted to include here is a little IF catch up. I put together a new business card design using one of my owl pieces and I thought it fit with last week's "drifting" theme.

Hope you like it. Enjoy!

Fit to Be Worn...

A couple of weeks back I got a message from a fellow foodie alerting me of a contest being held by the popular yet elusive Korean BBQ truck company known as...

They needed a t-shirt design for promotional purposes so they put it out that they were accepting submissions.

The prizes featured some cash, which is always good, but more importantly, cuts in line. Because of their huge fan base, where ever they set up shop, a line is sure to follow. So cuts was a definite incentive.

So I decided to put my hat in the ring. I started out with a sort of mascot derived from their trademark flame...

With that settled, I sketched out possible body for him...

Then I thought since it was a mobile BBQ grill company, I would incorporate that into the design as well and got this...

And here is a close up of the design...

Feel free to click on any of the images to see larger version.

Sadly, I didn't win. However, for the results of the t-shirt contest, you can click here.

Anyhow, thanks for looking and enjoy...

"After she unfolded her wings, she quickly realized that she was not alone..."

This piece is a work in progress so feel free to come back and check it out later. So far I'm pretty happy with it, but it's just not quite there yet. Thanks for coming by and as always, enjoy...

IF: Craving

"C is for..."

When I read that this week's theme was supposed to be "craving," cookie monster came to mind. I mean, they guy is the epitome of instant gratification. Anyhow, I would just like to thank sesame street for introducing me to the concept of a crack addict at such an early age.

In retrospect, maybe I just wasn't that much fun as child, but all I can remember is thinking, back then was "He's not really eating that cookie, he's a puppet. All he is doing is crumbling that perfectly good cookie and letting it fall to the ground. What a waste."

This is a work in progress as this week is insanely crazy for me, but when I get a chance, I think I will add more to the background. Until then, enjoy...
