I had a ton of fun with these 2 Star Wars “Beach” themed commissions.
A sketch to finish look at a page from "I'd Rather Be Riding My Bike" by Eric Pinder and John Cardinal. Look for a new collection of this book is coming soon to Tryptic Press.
Just a quick look at my design process for photo-illustrated cards.
"Strange things happen all over this world. In North America, there is a hotbed of oddities and weirdness known as "the south" and the people are only the beginning. Eustace and his team of outcasts try to keep the world safe with their brand of southern justice. Join them, there are plenty of moonshine and monsters to go around. The road to hell leads south."
After reading the first couple of issues I decided to have a little fun with my pinup, and include a corn-cob pipe smoking frog. He seemed like the kind of character that might show up in that world... the writer of "Hellbillies" agreed, and to my shock and delight FRED (my frog) appeared in issue 8. So much fun! Check out King Bone Press on Comixology, and if you need pinups for your next project hit me up! - John
