Pajama Party

yikes, have kind of let things slip here at the studio space. Way past time to do a little update as to what I've been up too. My only excuse is that I have been pretty busy. 
But that also means  I've got lots of stuff to share--a movie poster for Bohemian films, Front and back covers to the latest book in the Noggle Stone young adult series, A rpg adventure cover for Sacrosanct Games, and the cover for Kobold quarterly's World builder book (and I also did a nice little illustration of a clock work angel for them as well). But, lets start with this cover done for Moonstone Books Buckaroo Banzai comic series. They were on a tight deadline, so they gave me carte blanche to create an image and get it to them as soon as humanly possible. The image to the left is what I came up with. Its inspiration comes from an unlikely source. I am a big fan of  the art of J. C. Leyendecker (one of my all time favorite illustrators) and always loved the illustrations he had done the Arrow shirt ads. So cool the way the blacks disappear into the darkness. I wanted to do the same here, but I found that in the case of the ninjas I needed to cheat a little and have a few contour lines delineating their form or it just became too much of a confusing mess
