Lucy's Tiger

Howdy folks!

Here's a new illustration I just finished, it's for a story I'm writing about a girl who likes to invent and build mechanical creatures and contraptions. Below are close-ups and photos of the process. 

My final line drawing, color study, and two value studies. For my first value study, I tried staging the scene at night with dark shadows. After thinking about color combinations, I chose bright lighting to showcase the characters and create an upbeat mood.

For lighting and drawing reference, I built a rough model. I used Sculpty, wire, aluminum foil, and bits of cardboard.

The Tiger and the Toaster

Hi Dudes and Dudettes!

Here's an update for the Tiger and the Toaster poem I drew a while back. I spiffed it up and gave it some color and sent it out as a promo mailer. I have this baby printed on 5"x7" postcards in stunning technicolor. If you want a copy, email me your address and I'll send you one:
