Illustrator Journal #10: Bad Action Commission Update

With a hectic schedule like mine, it’s a WONDER how I find the time, ha-ha! I’m just kidding, been doing some sketches and designs that led up to this final design. The Bad Action album “Hashtag” now has a mascot, aka. Murray Walker and he’s never looked more sinister :). The line work has been finished up and now it’s just a case of completing the rest (colours and shading), but I have started that process.

This illustrated piece should be all done (with band and album text) within a few days. I personally love the design as I feel it’s a culmination of years of drawing and this is shows my drawings are getting better. I’m feeling more confidence in myself and that’s always a benefit. I’ll show you all the final outcome when I finish it.

Illustrator Journal #6: Murray Walker Commission

Continuing on from my last journal entry, just sketching out some designs so I’m sure of how I want to continue through with this. I’ve been given the green light on my design, but I just want to show you some of the work.

Forgive the brightness, that’s a fault on my part and my scanner… Plus I don’t want to reveal TOO many details :P. Half clown, half machine, Murray Walker has become obsessed with technology as he’s becoming the machine he craves as a tool for psychological and horrifying deeds.

Illustrator Journal #5: My first commission

I’ve been given my first commission to design an album cover for a band called “Bad Action” with their album entitled “Hashtag.” They feature a clown in one of their previous albums, so that’s the inspiration for the design i’ll make for them. So you know what i’m on about, here’s a picture of the clown that I’ve taken to calling ‘Murray Walker’ after one of their songs.

Plans to illustrate half of Murray’s face as robotic, with circuitry and lots of techie themes.
