I tend to sketch a lot of weird creatures and things when I’m not working on any product related stuff- It’s fun and relaxing I think. Lots of giant squid, jellyfish… and really ugly gross little animals that don’t really exist.
I’m working on a separate portfolio of all of this stuff- I LOVE it
Anyone else do this?
Here’s one I did around New Years- it started off as a cooked turkey and uh, evolved from there. I named him ‘stubbins’
It’d definitely be cool to see… I’m putting mine together mostly because I’d really love doing design work for any part of the entertainment industry. I think almost every page of thumbnails i’ve ever drawn has -something- weird on it. Usuaully some kind of squid (tentacles are fun!)
I’m thinking about putting together a site or something with mine, I’ll probably keep it separate from my ID stuff for now though.
I like your clean style though. That page reminds me of a storyboard.
The Hunter S. Thompson thing reminded me of this artist who paints very unusual, but realistic stuff: Brandon Bird: "Lazy Sunday Afternoon"
Haha yeah, I’m tempted to buy a poster of “Bad Day on the High Sea”.
Thanks too for the comments yo. I was taking a look at some of your sketches on the boards- very nice! It’s also good to see someone that posts when they have something positive to say, or some good constructive feedback.
the new burger king ads are plenty weird too, you’ve got Darius Rucker as a cowboy singing country songs about bacon cheddar ranch or something and Brooke Burke on a swing…let’s not forget about the King
I really love how threads go off on tangents makes for much more interesting reading!
I love the new Burger King ads-- especially the ‘breathing’ one with the King and Darth Vader. They definitely are doing a good job of separating themselves from the McDonald’s style ad’s that everyone seems to be doing these days.
The Hardy’s thickburger ads still make me gag though.
