as is becoming my habit, I sketched about 8 different ideas for this before finally deciding to just draw something and be done with it. Part of the problem is that what I was having urges to draw were things that are really not my style (I may not know what my style IS yet, but I have some ideas about what it’s NOT), probably as a result of too much web surfing. Lots of scantily-clad ladies dangling from birds and whatnot.
with many things. I did try to illustrate last IF’s “cocoon” – in fact, I tried multiple times in at least three mediums – but never got it nailed down. Also submitted something to 48hrmag that didn’t get accepted – not exactly heartbroken, since I’m not 100% sold on the thing myself, but I did like the direction it was headed in. Still an interesting risk even just to send something to someone; admit that it’s a try for something.
So here’s what I sent to 48 hr mag – the issue was themed “Hustle,” and this is what came to mind first (other than, of course, the M.I.A. track.) And for the hell of it here’s what I got closest to finishing for “cocoon.” I seem to be on grumpy ugly men lately, except that in stuff unseen here I am apparently all about sexy ladies. As usual click for huge.
