Converse Ad(vertisement) Assignment

Here is an ad I'm working on for Converse-All Star shoes.

I also have to give credit to Craig Bowers for teaching me how to color things in photoshop.

From sketch to near finish:

Recently I've been really digging into Yuko Shimizu's work and so I felt inspired to try working a different way. Something about getting to do the drawing by hand and color by computer seems like a comfortable spot for me. I'm trying it out.

In addition to Yuko I've been looking through American illustration annuals, finding images I like and copying them into my sketchbook. It works well as a method of documenting what I like and I often find that redrawing images I like helps me explore different ways of handling medium (since I have to imitate the original artist's hand).

I have a few flies in my sketchbooks too which I keep from decaying by covering them with tape. This is a good way to track the number of flies that you have murdered with the pages of your artwork.

If you don't already know them, check them out:

I seem to not be able to click and enlarge these, which is a shame cause they look really exciting.
