:: go go popitos ::

i got asked to do a show flyer for some bands in Barcelona. I've been working out this image of a dinosaur punk kid in school daydreaming about the show. i've got the toughest bit done...but they'd wanted it for monday. i'm thinking i'm going to have to call it a night soon though and hopefully i can give it to them monday night.

anyway here's what i've got so far:

it came out looking a bit like a teenage savage dragon, but salright i spose.

my capacity to do work for free is dwindling. i had a really hard time scheduling this in and ended up only getting the character done and handing it off to them to turn into a real poster. i don't know if they even used it in the end.

it takes so long for me to get a drawing done these days. kinda lame. i've been pretty scattered but i'm going to try to focus more energy on drawing.

i always feel like i have some "free freelance" or favor hanging over my head. working on cleaning house so i can do my own things again and not feel guilty.

Nice, did you do that in Flash or Illustrator?

i'm no good at illustrator/haven't tried enough, for better or worse i usually ink in flash

I love it! Reminds me of Robby from Dinosaurs-the show :) Very cool.



Great work here. Really seeing some nice line quality.

Are you really descended from viking warriors? Because I am related to Erik the Red! maybe we're kin, ha!

That dinosaur is really awesome.

whoa! i don't think i ACTUALLY am descendant of viking warriors...but it's possible! i know i'm at least from some crazy polish clan [i was doing research on these weird polish vikings the day i wrote that]...but NOTHING as amazing as erik the red! holy bones! bonzai for the win!!!

Wait, the Polish Clans, like the Berzerkers?? That's effing awesome, you totally win!

Also, in that case I think we are mortal enemies. =D
