Illustration Friday - "Homage"

For this week's Illustration Friday I wanted to pay homage to Sponge Bob paying homage to his spatula or "Spatchy" as he calls it.  I have two kids so I know WAY TOO MUCH about Sponge Bob- but I love it.  Sponge Bob was done in Illustrator.  The background was done in Photoshop.  The sand is taken from a photo- in the show they like to use real objects and place them into some scenes.  It took about 4 hours for this. 

Children's Puzzle Magazine Cover

  I finished this illo this week for a children's puzzle magazine cover.  I spent a lot more time on it than I thought it was going to take.  It was done in Illustrator/Photo Shop.

Illustration Friday - "Pet Peeves"

For this weeks Illustration Friday I had like a bazillion ideas for pet peeves (speeding fine doubled signs, the way too happy psycho kids on Barney... and the list went on) but I went with something I battle every summer-dandelions killing my grass:(  I did the illustration from the grasses point of view.  It's done in gouache (still learning) and took about 6 hours.

The Construction 4-Man


I did this image for fun and promo.  I was going for an old school jazz record album cover.  It's not a real band- but it seemed like a fun name.

Illustration Friday - "Heavy"

  For this weeks Illustration Friday I was inspired by one of my son's toys.  He has a Wonder Woman action figure (he also has lots of male action figures too:) that I stole from him to finish up this "Heavy" Wonder Woman image.  Most of my paying jobs I do in Illustrator (vector stuff) so I thought I'd do this one in that too.   I think I spent just under 5 hours on it.

Illustration Friday - "Garden"

For this weeks topic of Garden I came up with what might happen underground with the carrots- in my world:)  This was one of those illustrations where about 3 times I was really struggling with it- wanted to quit.  But I also had worked on it for a chunk of time and didn't want to give up.  So this is where it ended up.  It was done in gouache and took about 8 hours, 4 cups of coffee and all my purple gouache.

Illustration Friday - "Leap"

For this weeks topic I wanted to do leaping, dancing, singing and working the percussion bird.  I think it's a "leap" from the topic but here's where it ended up.  It was done in Gouache on black paper and took about 7 hours.  

Falling in love...

This image was for a buddy of mine who's working on a 3D animated feature.  It's a falling in love sequence. ahhh:)
