Client: Fully Illustrated - Michael Heald
Project: Character Illustration
It’s been a good month since I last posted some new ‘commercial’ work as everything is in production right now, so to keep the site updated and keep my regulars entertained, I’ve been playing in my sketch pad on pretty much daily basis...and here’s the latest incarnation...the Rabid Rabbit. I recently bought Michael Gagne’s (www.gagneint.com) awesome art book ‘Insanely Twisted Rabbits’ and fell totally in love with whole idea of him and his mate trying to out-do each other with who could create the most twisted bunny...so I figured, what the hell, I’ll take a pop too...and here he is...looks pretty twisted to me.
I was tasked with creating something contemporary, urban and very much in line with the world of vinyl toys (kid robot etc), but only in this instance, it had to be tied in with the company name Famous Couture, coming from the saying 'Making Jesus Christ Famous'. A tough but fun brief!
This was an absolutely BRILLIANT project!
