I'm working on a new illustration right now for a fun-lovin' Super 8 camera buff in Seattle. Two sock monkeys cavorting around with the Super 8 cameras, caught up in a reel of film. Here is the rough sketch that I'm about to start painting:
I've had the pleasure of creating several pieces of art for this fellow in the past, and you might notice a theme here:
And one for the cover of his Film School DVD:
This last one was fun - I used masking fluid on the "chalkboard" then painted over in black. When the paint was dry I just lifted off the mask and it was still white underneath.
(a tip: if you don't want to rub over your painting when removing masking fluid, take a piece of masking tape and press it onto the dry mask - lift up, and the gummy mask will come off with the tape)
I'll keep you posted with the progress of those naughty sock monkeys!
