I've been trying to stay loose lately, so this weekend I set down the paintbrush and picked up the pencil. These are a few drawings that I came up with.
The image up top is a cover idea I just made up. I've read that in an illustrator's portfolio, it's good to have mock covers... but I think that might only apply to recognizable books. (Oops!) I'm liking the idea of making digital collages so I worked that into the image a bit. Anyway, my youngest brother is having a birthday today so I had the idea from that. He's a crazy kid! and we love him... The image below that is just a sketch (We were all up Friday night trying to change the battery on a beeping smoke alarm - 12:30 am! - so you see the bathrobe) I have some other sketches on that event I might post soon
And now to the final sketch... I've always loved Indiana Jones. I remember playing out his adventures on the monkey bars in my back yard. (Dang near killed myself!) I drew him from the back of a cereal box and noticed he's getting just a tiny bit older. No offense Indy
And Drew Struzan has a great poster out for the new movie. You can see it at the Illustration Friday link here. I haven't found any other image of it yet and was delighted to find this!
Have a nice week everyone. And thank you so much for the comments you've been posting! You've been wonderful!
