Sea Creatures vs. Machines

"Eight Arms To Hold You""Plight Of The (Buick) Skylark"

JAMES - two new posters. the requests came in at the same time, so i decided to do them at the same time and integrate them somehow. a very consistant theme in alot of my stuff is water and the sea, so i went with that - and added lots of shredded metal!
and the shows look to be good ones, too, - from NY to NC. both posters are the usual: #2 brush, black india ink ('black star' matte), Tachikawa No.99 nib (a fresh one), some microns, some white paint (my own secret blend), and a toothbrush for the splatter. on bristol paper, vellum finish. the octopus poster had an extra step, since i did a very detailed sketch first, then lightboxed it to a clean pencil drawing (see below). the sharkie was all done on one sheet.

just finished another two posters - this time color. not quite as visually integrated, but they look cool together. i'll post those in a day or two.
