New show flier finished.

Lady Hippo

So apparently I've really dropped the ball on posting drawings every day, but hey, I've been busy. I'm still sorting out computer stuff, holiday stuff, and dealing with some of the craziest weather I've ever witnessed here in Portland. Maybe I'll just resign myself to posting whenever I have something post worthy which brings me to my post.

For the past few weeks I've been working on the above show poster for the band "Alan Singley & Pants Machine" here in Portland. The main font is taken from a vintage children's book, as is the image of the hippo. All elements in the poster are hand drawn, then scanned into photoshop for composition and image tweaking. It took quite a while to finish, but I'm really happy with the end result. It is possibly the best poster I've done yet. Hopefully this will lead to more work in the Portland area as well as some paying gigs.

I'm a fan of that hippo and her eyelashes.

This is quite a piece, Ilan. The colors, the lettering, the fucking hippo! I would like to put your insane talents to something terribly uncool, but so worth while: My wedding invitation.
