Cartooning for a cause, stage two!

Explorers stage 2First came the pencil art, now arriveth the inks – stage two of my charity art contribution for the ‘Colour Our Story’ auction project (see yesterday’s post for further details) involved going over aaaaaaaaall those itty-bitty pencil details with even more equally itty-bitty ink lines; all ready for it to be scanned and colourised! Want to see that? You”l just have to wait for tomorrow, sorry….

Cartooning for a cause, Stage 1

Explorers stage 1A little while ago,  I signed on for a creative-people’s charity auction with a group called ‘Colour Our Future’, who were looking for paintings / sculptures / illustrations / everything else that could be sold off (via Trademe) to raise funds for their international good works. My contribution will be a full-colour, hand-drawn Cosmos poster featuring the awesome adventurers at Explorers Inc. – so for the next few installments, I’m going to showcase its evolution! Thus we find stage one: pencil art!

The best thing about being an illustrator, I find, is not having to spend money on generic, cookie-cutter greeting xards for special occasions (such as Father’s Day) – since I can create my own stunning works of art instead!


Adventure Pack promo poster concepts

29) Bonus contentToward the tail end of the Explorers Inc. project, I came up with an If-I-Have-Time bonus idea: a poster that, if the Adventure Pack actually existed, could be hung in bookshops to advertise the arrival of said product on the shelves. I did a range of concepts, and decided on a final potential design; but with one thing and another, the Adventure Pack itself remained the top priority and I never did a finshed version. Nevertheless, I now have the opportunity – and the perfect forum! – to present the concepts as part of this segment! ‘Cause everyone loves concept designs, right?
