Just finished an illustration awhile back of the one and only Quint, legendary shark hunter of Amity, who happens to be one of my favorite fictional characters of all time! Themed it a bit around Little Golden Books, I would love to do one of those for Jaws. Perhaps I'll take on that challenge one day!
Working on some designs for new witches! This is ‘Ida’, one of the youngest witches of her coven. Also, her toad ‘Spud’ can be seen above. Definitely going to do some more concept pieces featuring these two and the other older and experiences witches they hang around.
An announcement; I have another blog just for a class called Cafe Sketch! Over on that blog there are posts with gesture drawings as well as some quick caricatures! So if you'd like to head on over and see some of those sketches you can head to this link!
Worked on an editorial piece concerning Hitchcock dismissing any opportunity to meet and talk to Steven Spielberg! He's quoted as saying, "I can't sit down and meet the boy who did that fish movie." which I thought was very interesting. The article can be found here.
So I ended up drawing a young Steven Spielberg in his outfit he wore when directing Jaws holding 'Bruce' the shark in a fishbowl and a toy Orca boat in his hand. Then Hitchcock is grumpily sitting next to him feeding his birds from 'The Birds'. This was a really fun piece to illustrate and nice practice for figuring out the style I wanted to go for. Definitely changed from the original sketch!
