Illustration Friday "Cracked"


For this week's Illustration Friday topic of "cracked" I went sci-fi. I've been having fun drawing aliens, so here's the Galactically Evil Alien Squidopus. I have him squeezing the ship's window so hard it becomes "cracked'. I went with a poster type look again. I'm a creature of habit. It's a Photoshop/Illustrator collaboration, and took about 4.5 hours.

Illustration Friday "Contagious"


For this week's Illustration Friday topic of "contagious" I went with a movie that's contagious. Everyone I know loves the new Star Trek movie. One of my friends has already seen it 3 times. Maybe it's a stretch on the topic, but it's all I could come up with. I've been having fun doing retro mock up posters for animated shorts, so I went that way again. I might have pushed it a little with Captain Kirk's hand on Ahura's hip, but I thought it added some to the humor. It took about 5 hours and is a Photoshop/Illustrator collaboration. Live long and prosper...

Illustration Friday "Parade"


For this week's Illustration Friday topic of "parade" I was thinking of the 1950's parades. A marching band dressed in red and blue leading the way. My wife spent a couple years of her childhood in Story City Iowa (which sounds like an all American town) so I used that name for the band and location. This took about 6 hours and is a Illustrator/Photoshop collaboration.

Illustration Friday "Hierarchy"


For this week's Illustration Friday topic of hierarchy (a system in which people are ranked one above the other according to status or authority) I kept thinking of Batman and Robin. The way that superheros and their sidekicks all have a ranking. So I can up with Super Space Girl and her sidekick Gamma Kitty. They are fighting the evil Cyclop-tobot! For some reason I really like illustrating robots fighting cute kids- what's that about? Anyway... this took about 5 hours and is a Illustrator/Photoshop collaboration.
