Here is this thing that I’m not proud of at all! But I wanted to post it for the fact that I snuck in an Attack on Titan inspired Ronald McDonald into today’s paper. This is the shit that happens when you throw me a vague topic and then expect it to be done in like 4 hours.

Another Illo I did, for a centerpiece featuring two columns, one that is supportive of EPA regulation and one that thinks they’re overstepping their bounds.

Included are the final web version, final print version, and some sketches.

Not suuuper happy with the colors, but happy I think I pulled something off without relying on hard outlines that wasn’t a vector illo.

A younger version of me would’ve explicitly labeled that lady “EPA” or something, but hopefully the articles, etc do that for me. That said, this one might be too abstract? IDK w/e

The Two Ways I’ll Know I’ve “Made It”

1. People will pronounce my name correctly on the first go, having never met me.

2. I’ll have enough pull to turn Eddie Murphy’s 1992 film Boomerang into a cult classic, with people writing “thinkpieces” and essays about it on AV Club and Vulture, and there’ll be a list on Buzzfeed like “10 Reasons Boomerang Is The Best Comedy You’ve Never Seen” and it’ll come up as the answer to a question at your local pub’s Trivia Tuesdays under categories like  ”90s pop culture” and “seriously overlooked movies that are definitely better than Trading Places, and yet they do fuckin’ NPR stories on that movie.” Like seriously guys, it’s a solid, solid comedy. Everyone and their mother can quote Coming to America line by line but NOBODY is giving Boomerang the time of day. Beyond Mr. E. Murphy, it’s got Martin Lawrence and David Alan Grier in their prime, not to mention then-relative-newcomer Halle Berry. That shit had Chris Rock in his first movie role! It had “End of the Road” by Boyz II Men on its soundtrack. FUCKING “END OF THE ROAD”! And like it’s a solidly funny movie, with some above-average direction to boot. Also, they did that cool thing that Eddie Murphy used to do where like 99% of the actors are Black, including the extras.

So like. Uh. I guess watch Boomerang. It’s available for instant streaming on Netflix.

New illo from work, accompanying an article about how current law can make the average computer-user a felon.

1) Final web version of the illustration
2) Final print version (the flashlight-initial was the idea of the designer, in the original sketch/web version (below) the guy just had a gun)
3) Original sketch
4) Original web version, which was just a color version of the print version that I didn’t think worked as well with all the negative space, hence the first version above.
5) The cover to Batman #9, Vol. 1 that conceptually inspired the whole thing
