Soooo I'm posting a t-shirt design I did for Burger King about a month ago and then afterwards turned the graphic into this lil swipe card.I'm not a big fast food guy myself but I have a soft spot for creepy clowns and non blinking big headed kings.
So this project was right up my alley.

Let's break down how this one started.
4pm Revisions to sketch were made by client.
8-9pm Sketch revisions made on my end.
Ate a quick meal of Fajitas and 2% Milk
9:30pm- 4:15 am Worked on final piece and burned out retinas staring unblinking into computer screen.
9am Wake up and check e-mail from client.
9:17am -12pm Tweak final.
12pm - 12:32pm Minor freak out as computer locks up with spinning wheel of death.
Need to restart and tweak the last 10 minutes again.
1:05pm E-mail final piece off to client.
1:06 Shower my oily body to it's professional appearance it is today.
1:15 Eat breakfast.
1:30 Look back at this piece and not be happy with it and decide to revise it at a later date.
My Day and Art. TA-DA!
Well here is the latest in the stream of Yeti Posts. I've been working on a cellphone interphase for kids that is character based and has a back story to it. This animatic is basically my rough pitch of how two of the multiple functions would flow and work. It is a bit rough but it gets the point across. Some people have asked about the sweat on the character. My explanation is simple. He is a misplaced Yeti/aka Snowbeast with a nice thick coat of fur. And as anyone who has ever worn a Yeti lined Coat can tell you,....it can get sticky in there. So here it is.
I'd love to know any comments.

Yes yet another Yeti character design.
I wanted to break it down into elements that could be easily made into simple animation. That was and has been my problem all along as I’ve revised and revised it 6 times. I wanted it more simple,..yet to keep a strong form and remain attractive and marketable. I think this one is a lil more tough/gritty looking and I feel gears more to boys than the previous post. But the animation is more annoying that enjoyable right now.They just twitch & blink. But it's a work in progress.

This is a recent shirt I did for State Farm Insurance.
What better way to keep kids quiet while mommy & daddy talk than to give me him/her a shirt! Especially one with a sea creature on it destroying a city! The deadline was so tight for this one I had to reuse parts of a city scene from a previous piece to finish it up. The fact that I had just seen Cloverfield helped a bit with inspiration for this one.
Originally this piece was going to be a spoof of the American Idol judges and use their likeness to resemble the interview process for college grads. But over the course of the project the direction changed to move away from the Idol judges into more non specific people and thus reduce the chance of being sued I guess. It still was a fun piece to work on and practice my character design skills with.
I just finished up a spot illustration for the Boyscouts and some additional character design work. I really like how the kid characters got flushed to in the final piece and how the troop leader kinda looks like Tom Cruise. Hopefully I get to do more work for them! I guess I enjoy drawing animals and outdoor scenes.
