On the Drawing Board

December 8th, 2006 | Posted in On the Drawing Board

Currently still working (slowly) on a TV parody for MAD, poster job for Marlin Co., still waiting on feedback from the Ralph Nader museum job, and the cover job. Not much new to show, but here is the rough draft of the cover illustration:


This cover may not happen as a final. Sometimes designer/publishers of magazines pay to develop more than one concept and offer choices to the client. We agreed on a price up to this stage, and another if we go to final. This particular client isn’t sure they want a ‘cartoon’ cover, although I intend to paint this one instead of doing the line art/color style I use in MAD. In fact I think it’s unlikely they’ll go for it. If they do, I’ll need to stick to a more realistic style of drawing and painting. I may set up a few reference pics at least for the foreground characters and the patient sitting on the table so I can achieve a more realistic bend to the art… stuff like folds in the gown and similar details are tough to pull out of your head (at least for me).
