DHX 2017 Santa Caricature

I completely forget to post this caricature at the same time I posted it on my instagram last year.  So here goes...At the end of 2017 for my studio DHX Halifax, we had the reveal of the Secret Santa-cature pieces that people did as well as a prize and gift presentation.  I wanted to show the one I did of my co-worker Krista.  Below you can see a couple of the reference photos I used and some process pics.  I was lucky enough to win 1st place voting and get some cool Peanuts brand prizes.







Thanks

Cheers

Ken Turner - Alternative Art Poster #41: "THE SIMPSONS TREEHOUSE OF HORROR" - Color Variant

 Here is my Alternative Art Poster #41: "THE SIMPSONS TREEHOUSE OF HORROR" - Color Variant
 
This poster may look familiar as its a color variant of The Simpson’s “Treehouse of Horror” poster I did back in October of 2017. I wanted to make a 11X17 version of that poster but in color.  I'm pretty happy with the final result.  You can go back a couple posts to see the original poster.

 So just as a reminder the characters in the poster are: “IT-chy”, “War for the Planet of the Abes”, “The E-MOE-ji Movie”, “Beauty and the Comic Beast Guy” and “Wonder Waylon”.

Brandon Blenkarn - Caricature

I recently finished a small freelance design gig for a co-worker who wanted me to design a caricature of her friend as a birthday gift.

His Instagram bio reads: I just lift things and like cats.

So that was pretty much the direction I went with it.

Ken Turner - Alternative Art Poster #40: "THE SIMPSONS TREEHOUSE OF HORROR"

Here is my Alternative Art Poster #40: "THE SIMPSONS TREEHOUSE OF HORROR"
Here is my art piece for the latest DHX Gallery entitled “Inktober”. We had to pick an animated tv show past or present that we liked. I originally was going to go with My Pet Monster but changed it to The Simpson’s specifically the “Treehouse of Horror” specials. My take was to do it using popular movies from 2017. So it includes “IT-chy”, “War for the Planet of the Abes”, “The E-MOE-ji Movie”, “Beauty and the Comic Beast Guy” and “Wonder Waylon”.
