Illustration Friday - Creature

monsterfriendThis is a piece from sometime last year.  Its another thrift store detournement piece.  When I pulled this off my wall this morning, I totally forgot that I treated it with a layer of modge podge to try and unify my painting with the original.  It kind of worked.  I might try this again on my cobra commander  blue boy painting I finished this summer.  Happy Halloween, everybody!

Illustration Friday : ONOMATOPOEIA

postitbatmanSo this is my quick and dirty illustration for illustration Friday this week.  Onomatopoeia immediately makes me think of Batman.  I drew this out on a post it and decided to finish it off there.  I like the quick and dirty aspect of working with materials that aren't meant to work together like water based paints and office reminders.  I have to give a shout out to Marc Johns since he is the king of post it note art.  If you've never seen his stuff check it out.  It's funny and cerebral.  He also inspired me to ditch the nice leather bound sketch books for the homeade, back pocket, who cares variety.  Thanks Marc!
