"Fine Dining on Metaluna" Finished!

"Fine Dining on Metluna" Final Design Comp
Another tee finished and sent out hopefully to find a home in print! I don't exactly have the time right now to do a full run-down on the process of this one. Though it's not that different from my usual process so it's probably not needed. The only thing I did do differently was doing all my inking work in Illustrator. I really love the quality of line Illustrator gives you. Very smooth and easy to recreate that retro feel.

Let me know what you think! In the mean time, It's off to hopefully find a home! Time to sell this shirt...


Fine Dining on Metaluna

I'm working on 3 projects at the moment. 1 is for an art show in Brooklyn in September. 1 is a tee-shirt that put's a twist on the Hunger Games series, and this one, which came to me Sunday morning in bed. This is the world famous space monster from the B-classic, and quite possibly original cult classic "This Island Earth." I decided to take advantage of the fact that this monster has lobster like claws and decided to present it as a lobster dinner. I got a lot to do to this though. I have to ink it, make edits from the critiques I've received and color it. This is just the idea. Hopefully Tee Fury, Qwertee or Ript Apparel would run with this design, though as usual, I'm probably gonna let Woot take the first crack at it. Woot however may err on the side of caution with this one since it will be close to a copyrighted character. I think it's still covered under parody though.


The Final Shirt for Thoughtsarizen - A Walk Through My Design Process

Final Tee Shirt Design. Click to Enlarge.
It's been a long while since I started doing work for rapper Thoughtsarizen. He spotted some work of mine on Deviantart which started a dialog between us. I quoted him a price and the rest is history. Since I started doing illustration work for him I have done 2 tee-shirts, 1 poster and 1 CD sleeve. I think this is a great final piece because I think it acts as a grand finale.

This is only a 3 color tee shirt design. I've had people ask me how I get the level of depth I can get in so few colors. I learned from Youtube videos from a good friend of mine, artist Tony Avina. Any way, this blog entry is all about this piece from start to finish. We will explore my thought process, why I decided to do certain things and what steps I took to achieve this final product. I'd love to answer and questions or if you have any tips on how I can do a certain process even easier, then by all means let me know! Thanks, and enjoy the walk-through.
