After a few months of work with the wonderful ladies at EMET Comics - Editor in Chief Maytal Gilboa and writer Melissa Jane Osborne, I'm excited our title "The Wendy Project" is launching next week!
I'll be talking more about this project soon, including more process work for interiors. This project looks very different from my other comic, "Pirates of Mars", and it was fun for me to work in two different styles.
While back Mowgli Surfwear contacted me to create some Japanese-inspired designs. You should check out their wonderful Instagram (as well as the store) and you can see great pics of their trip to Tokyo.
American surf wear and hiking gear is really popular over there - you can find "select shops" like Cher and Beaver that specialize in them, respectively.
I love this photo of Christian (the person whose likeness you see here) taken in Japan by Jesse Stopnik:
Another look at the art for The Wendy Project, soon to be released by EMET COMICS. The story is told through Wendy's sketchbook journal, which was a great idea by the writer Melissa Jane Osborne, so the art has license to get a bit experimental. I really enjoy getting work in two different styles on both Pirates of Mars and The Wendy Project.
Even though (E) was not used, I'm excited to apply the same design to a different client for another project.
That's my favorite way to beat feeling bummed if a client doesn't go for my personal favorite - the idea just goes in the idea box for another time! No sweat. :)
So happy the Boston Derby Dames asked me back for another logo! They asked that the team mascot Pinchy the Lobsta be incorporated into the design.
I had lobster for the very first time this summer on Cape Cod. Can't say I liked it.
Found out that lobsters used to be fed to prisoners on Cape Cod because they were considered the cockroach of the sea! When Boston society started eating them they suddenly became very fashionable and expensive.
