|Gabby's & Michael's drawings|
Friday, August 24, 2012
A couple of days ago my sister posted to Facebook a doodle that my 2 year-old niece did. After looking it over I got really excited at the idea of giving it my own flare. I brought her drawing into Photoshop, lowered the opacity of it and traced right on top of her drawing, adding in details I imagined when I looked at her picture...pretty much doing my own take on Dave DeVries' The Monster Engine.
I really like the outcome of my piece. I think you can clearly see my nieces drawing come through, but at the same time I've made it my own. I'm not sure if my niece Gabby can understand what I did if I showed her the drawing, but maybe someday she can appreciate it and maybe even work with me on another piece.

This was a really exciting project to get to work on and you can probably tell based on my portfolios that this is pretty different than the work I usually do. It was a real pleasure getting to work with the College Humor team and I really hope I get the chance to do more work with them in the future; such a blast and it felt extremely rewarding.
So by now I'm pretty sure you want your own deck, right? Of course you do! You can purchase your own deck of College Humor playing cards on the website Busted Tees by clicking HERE
A while back I posted a portrait of a character from the video game, Gitaroo Man. His name was Carrot and he is the leader of the Sanbone Trio, a musical group made of of 3 skeletons that use their own boney bodies for instruments. I recently finished another portrait of another member of the group named Pine. Below you can see the new portrait right beside the old one. Will the Sanbone Trio ever be complete? You'll just have to keep an eye out and see for yourself ;)
