Mercury is in the Toilet

I got to do another illustration for The Portland Mercury this week! The article is about new bathroom construction in public parks so a toilet in the park seemed the best way to go. Black and white for the printed version and color for the internet.

I was asked to revise my original design because it didn't look enough like a toilet, but I miss the charming eyes and smile of the toilet in the design below. Oh well, that's the illustration business I guess.

Hope everyone enjoyed the splash of nice weather we've been enjoying the past two days, because it looks like it's going to rain again tonight. When is summer coming??

Last Roundup

Here's the final flier for the show. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, though if I had more time I would have liked to throw some more details in there and really fine tune some things. Maybe mess around with some water color on the original drawing. Check out the band on their myspace page (which is apparently Myspace's only function now) and then check out the show on May 21st!

If you notice the lettering is reminiscent of the Muppet Show Logo. This was completely unintentional. Please do not expect Muppets to be performing at this show.

Last Concept

This is the rough drawing that we eventually went with for the final version. I'll post that up tomorrow. Happy Tuesday, everyone!
