Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
Great! Love the groupies. Sell it to Keith , not Mick. Mick is supposedly tighter with money. I liked your quote from Altamont ( or does he say it in each concert) “Charlie’s good tonight, i'nt he?”Record it at a few more steps. Great WIP documentation thus far. Would make a great multi step post on Tumblr.
I like the monochrome groupie behind Mick. Is that a typical way to work. Have the figure me a strong single color and then add- paint into it? Will she get highlights or is her lightest light already been done?
Wow! Is this another illustration for that car magazine? They will be blown away!
Cars and Rock Stars... I think you've found your niche!Fun stuff as always!
Dudes! You guys are too kind! Didn't expect anyone to see this so quickly on a quiet Thursday night...I did this to show a car magazine--but it's only a test piece. I'm both trying to sell them on an approach to an interview series they're starting, and searching for a style. This isn't it. Too elaborate. I think this has good points as an attempt at a full-on illustration (and some not-so-good points--that "skyline"), but I'm trying for a simpler, sketchy style...something "evocative." That's what I was going for--but once I go to color, things quickly get out of hand!And Elz, to answer yr question, no, I wasn't planning to do more with the background girls--I want them to be very background, so no highlights will be added...in fact, I want Mick and Keef to look more like them! tho' I don't like their facial "types"... generic Mad Magazine. I want to capture glam chicks of that era...must do better.But I am glad you guys dug it!
I think it's grand! Perhaps you can sell them on the idea of a full page comic each month! CarTOONS!
Great idea Rick. I agree!Marty, it would a great vehicle for artistic expression. Maybe it could be an auto-biography. You can't a-Ford to miss this chance to get the wreck-ignition you deserve.
I agree , Rick has a great idea.Add that link I saw on twitter to the article
Actually, I wasn't making a pun.. there used to be a magazine called CARtoons that featured all sort of cartoons about cars. http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=cartoons+magazine+artwork&qpvt=Cartoons+Magazine+Artwork&qpvt=Cartoons+Magazine+Artwork&FORM=IGRE
CARtoons were alright. But Drag Cartoons was better. Pete MillarI called Pete Millar and had a talk with him about how much I enjoyed those CDs. He was a very cool guy. Talked quite a bit. Some Wonder Wart Hog discussion. I think he died about 3 weeks after i talked to him. He sounded like a young man on the phone.
Dudes, you have me cracking up. Tom with the puns, even...oy!Yes, Rick, we want to do a big horror anthology book with all of us contributing--I will post something more formal SOON!Thanks for putting the Autoweek link up, Elz!
