Pointy Ear Man
Yey, a little more character development. I have some great new work starting soon, so I wanted to take some time to play around with some style development. Don't ask where the idea came from, I was just sat down watching some TV with my sketch pad playing with some lines...and boom, he appeared. Kinda Batman inspired I guess with a mix of other superheroes. I really like the clean line, Tartakovsky style simplicity of this character, I must keep exploring!!
This was a great opportunity that arose late 2008, where I was approached by the publishers of this new creative inspiration book series, the Creative Unity, to appear in their first volume as none other than their featured designer!
This was a cool one to work with as the brand is soooo funky. All that old school USA flare, pin striping, motorcycles and amazing insignia.
