More sketchbook junk from Creativity and Concept Development class. The theme was “elementary school.” I think the Prime Ministers were actually my favourite pages from my sketchbook but I’m not sure that anyone else likes them as much as I do.
This is the final illustration which I created using the design for the Mexican wrestler from the previous post. The concept I was given for this illustration was that a team of scientists had been combining the wrestler’s DNA with the DNA of various sea creatures in an underwater lab.
This is a character design I did for Structural Drawing class. We were supposed to design a mexican wrestler. Then we were supposed to take the mexican wrestler we designed and transform him into a half man half sea creature monster. Yes this is what I am going to college to do.
These are some book covers for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald that I created for Advertising and Packaging Illustration last semester. I was trying to create a minimalist representation of a baby with an old man’s personality. I created two versions, one with a face and one without a face, but I’m not sure which I prefer.
A Gerald tissue box that I created last semester for Advertising and Packaging Illustration. The tissue is his tears! If you’re not familiar with Gerald he is a recurring character from my webcomic, Lemon Inc.
More stuff from last semester. This was a project for digital paint class. We were supposed to create a poster for the Ontario Library Association’s annual Super Conference that we would enter into a contest to be chosen as the official poster. The theme this year was “Think it, do it.” I chose to use blueprints to express that idea. I didn’t win but apparently I was the runner up!
If you couldn’t make it to TAAFI, I’m going to be exhibiting at the Indy Comics Showcase at Back Space Toronto on College Street on the 26th! I’ll have Lemon Inc. books and Mystery Path mini comics as well as buttons and free bookmarks. Amanda Sandland, Shane Kirshenblatt and my brother Chris Lai will also be there and you should come to check out their comics and stuff too!
