groot 1

for Doodle United, the Guardians of the Galaxy.  And yes, it did just turn out to be an excuse to draw Groot.
I haven't drawn on clayboard seriously for a few months. I have become rusty... but this was interesting enough that I may go back and try another one to see if I can apply what I have learned.

Doodle United: EIO tour shirt

Again, for Doodle United:  Farm Animals... since I got done early with the CD cover, I decided to adopt the phrase, "If it's worth doing, then it's worth OVERdoing."

So I made an accompanying Tour Shirt design. The best part was discovering all the really strange and funny town names that the US has. I kept the really suggestive ones off the list. The 13 year old in my head had a blast with this.

Doodle United: Farm Animals

for the Doodle United topic of Farm Animals... I decided to continue on with parody submissions. This time, a fictional farm animal-hairband live CD cover. The band, EIO.  It's a week early, but this was just too fun to wait... strike while the iron is hot.

Doodle United: The Amphibians

Having seen several "artistic adaptations" of classic comic book covers... this topic really lent itself to such a treatment...
Freely and openly building an homage to the great John Buscema, whom I could only hope to clean his brushes... I took The Avengers 57 cover and adapted it into :  The Amphibians.

Doodle United Topic: Your Zodiac Sign: Gemini

ok, so I admit this one is a stretch... but I had a really tough time conforming to the decorative art styles of Celestial Seasons or Crabtree and Evelyn.  I admire those illustrations very much, but it ain't me. And to make matters worse, I am a gemini... the twins. Twins??? What do I do with that? So I kept coming back to a battle between the Marvel comics Alpha Flight twins Northstar and Aurora meeting up with Jan and Jayce the Wonder Twins.  But it still was not to my liking until I thought... Teen Titans GO!  The little Chibi based animated cartoon. So cute. So I did a mash up of Chibi and Bill Watterson of the Twins of the DC and Marvel U.  It was fun.  My apologies to Bill Watterson.
