A little too campy, maybe...?

Well, with a handful more of small tweaks to be made on the final piece, as well as the fact that I get as giddy as a school girl when I finally have something new to post on here...I decided to go ahead and post this. The absolute final piece will be on my site. So if you're reading this a week after I've posted, or you've traveled back in time and completely missed your mark (see Flux Capacitor User's Manual), you can check it out on my website.

And since the lady at the barber shop gave me a chopcut that can only be likened (get it? a werewolf?! Trust me, it's a good joke) to a lost member of the New Kids on the Block, I figured I owed myself one. I'm typically a hat wearer, but now my headwear has a purpose. It's kind of like the Phantom of the Opera, but from the forehead up...and I can't play the piano. And if I could, I'd write a song to the lady at the barber shop entitled, "Short on the Sides and Some Length on the Top is Not Necessarily Up for Interpretation. Please Have Your Eyes Open Next Time. Nevermind, I'm Never Coming Back Here Again." Or something along those lines. It'd be a gangster rap, too. And some piano, like I said.

So this illustration was fun. As I posted before, this is going to be used as a prop in a short film I'm involved with. The book doesn't actually exist. So we're mocking one up. And since I hadn't tackled an illustration in a while, I thought I would go all out with the prop. The story isn't really based on anything. I think I just wanted to draw monsters. Not sure what the next illustration will be. I actually really like the way the little boy's bonfire looks in that chalky brush. So I may try something more along those lines. We'll see. At any rate, this post was loaded with fun words like 'LIKEN' and 'NECESSARILY'! Oh, and some art.
