Illustration Friday: Homage

My homage to one of my favorite comics of all time, Madman,

by one of my favorite artists of all time, Mike Allred.

I've been trying to make a point of reading "The Oddity Odyssey" once a year, and every time it's the bees knees.

This is America's Most Mackin'.

Sad Sack

This image is like the previous 4 featuring my breakdancing superstar The Professor, in that it was done in illustrator with no initial drawing, I just started clicking and dragging with the pen tool to see where it would take me. It's a fun way to work.

This sad little guy reminds me of a kid I used to know in grade school, oddly enough. I can't remember his name, I just remember him being a downer.

Everything I do is funky like Lee Dorsey.

Robot Mommy Redux

Vector version of previously blogged sketch. Not sure about the baby colors, but the mom matches the colors inside the bag that my wife plans to put this on, so I've got that goin' for me.

A few Yeti 4 Hire Sketches from the other day...

Strong yeti.

Sad yeti.

Yeti faces.

And then some non-yeti related characters

My son christened the four armed guy "Mr. Weird" and then proceeded to make up a song about him, but I forget how it went.

So my printer-scanner combo jobber is totally busted.

This means I can't scan my drawings into my computer (which, incidentally, does all the REAL work at making them awesome).

So I made this, with the computer all by itself. No drawing to guide me, no plan of attack as I sat down to the machine. I was scared at first, hiding behind a large rock, crying, praying, etc. But, I manned-up, approached the keyboard and mouse and wrassled'em until they submitted to my will and this lizard showed up on the screen.

(This, of course, is unremarkable and plenty of other digital artists who are far more talented than me do this on a daily basis. I just had to write something in this little box they give you to put words in, primarily for my own amusement.)

It was fun to make and I like it.

I do need a new scanner though.
