So I took today off from working mainly because my wrist has been bothering me slightly. So I spent most of the day on the web finding inspiration in various places.
I some how ended up designing a fan FFFFound poster.
Now I know I said I wasn't supposed to be working but... design is rather therapeutic for me.
I found the images used on the top of the poster in ffffound and thought they represented the site in a well rounded way (especially Voyage, ha)
I did the hand type with a Japanese Pentel color brush (awesome!)
just thought I'd share

This is a digital Mural I did for a new yogurt shop in Arkansas.
Its called The Dreamy Spoon, a self-serve frozen dessert shop.
Here is the address if you live in Arkansas and want to check it out:
115 Audubon Dr. Ste #1
Maumelle, AR 72113
The grand opening is April 2nd. I'll be there if you want to come by and tell me how good of a job I did, ha.
So, On the bottom of this post I showed the two loose thumbnails I showed them(they chose the non blue one) then a screen shot of the whole thing in progress.
I did the illustration in pieces.
I worked on the figure, cage and background in separate windows.
I did this because I was working so large. It was much easier on my computer to lighten the layer load.
The cage was really fun to do. I did the whole thing using scanned in textures and gradients. It took a while but the outcome I think is rich and appealing.
I've also attached a few photos they sent to me so you can see the scale of this thing. Should be fun to see in person, never seen my art blown up this large

So this is a piece Ive been casually working on for some time now. It started off as a commission sketch and I liked the sketch so much that I decided to turn it into a full blown illustration.
Not really a point to this besides completely geeking out to a super hot representation of Caitlin Fairchild.
Had a lot of fun making this, hope you guys like it!!
