What this year needs right now is a little light-hearted pick-me-up.
This is the Marvel/DC Snowpocalypse State Of The Union 2011.
Drawn and colored entirely in Adobe Illustrator CS3.
OK. New Year. Let’s see if I can update this blog a little more often.
I have always enjoyed drawing on people. I once saved a buddy in the Marines from getting a tattoo of his girlfriends name. I told him I would draw her name on his chest as the stem of a rose. It worked out great. It looked like a real tattoo. We took a bunch of pics of it, and he sent it to her. She loved it, but as all things go when you do something like that and put your heart on your sleeve, they broke up a few weeks later. He was glad he didn’t get that done for real. I’m glad I was there to keep him from doing something stupid. He never forgot that favor.
Cut to years later and I’m still drawing on people. My friend Molly let me draw Iron Man on her stomach. I thought it would be cool to show it off, she doesn’t mind me showing it here. This image took less than 2 hours to complete. I drew it from the famous Adi Granov image.We are going to do some more when we have time. Some Alice In Wonderland, some zombies, more heroes, etc.
I like how the chest piece lines up with the belly button. I’m a professional, people. I didn’t plan it, it just worked out that way. She was cool enough to wear a Punisher costume that my buddy made. I included that pic in this post.
What do you think?
