Installing Linux on a Dead Badger
This is one of the more strange illustration jobs I have had lately. The assignment was to draw a slightly cartoon like but not overly gory illustration of a dead badger, on its back with its legs up in the air.
The publisher wanted to give the book a faux-computer manual cover look, and needed an illustration for the cover that somewhat parodies the animals on the O'Reilly computer manuals:http://www.oreilly.com/pub/topic/serveradmin
this is the interior illustration I did for one of the stories in the book, "The Great Vudu Linux Teen Zombie Massacree". It was a fun little piece to do.
