Illustration Friday - "Packed"


  For this weeks Illustration Friday I was totally stumped!  I couldn't come up with anything I really wanted to illustrate.  So after scribbling out some loose ideas  I remembered an episode of Star Trek where Captain Kirk and the Enterprise were "packed" full of these little furry critters called "Tribbles".  (I had to google "furry space aliens on Star Trek" to find out they were called tribbles.)  I love google- it's so awesome for getting reference- I use it all the time.  In this episode Captain Kirk wore a green shirt and the tribbles didn't have eyes- so I changed it up a bit.  Anyway.... This is as close to "Packed" as I could get.  It took about 4 hours once I figured out what to do.

Illustration Friday - "Island"

  For this weeks topic of "Island" I went with the show Fantasy Island.  When I was a kid, every Saturday night after "The Love Boat" this kinda edgy show came on- Fantasy Island.  At the beginning of each episode this little guy named Tattoo would climb to the top of this tower, ring a bell and yell the words "Da Plane...Da Plane!"  For some reason Tattoo yelling that really bugged my dad- so we had to crank up the volume so he could hear it no matter where he was in the house:)  It was d0ne in Illustrator and Photoshop and took about 4 hours.

Illustration Friday - "Clutter"




  For this weeks Illustration Friday topic of "clutter" I went with E.T. (The Extra- Terrestrial).  I've been on a 80's movie kick lately.  I remember E.T. getting drunk while Elliot was at school, and making a mess (that's the clutter:)  The second illustration was inspired from Indiana Jones, Raiders Of The Lost Ark.  I took some liberties with Indiana (wasn't going for a total Harrison Ford caricature).  I did it for a portfolio piece- and cause it just seemed fun.  Both illos were done in Illustrator and Photoshop.
