Josie and the Pussycats! 2013 Original Art Commission!

Here is a fun new commission, featuring those darlings of 70s Saturday-morning TV, JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS! Click images below to enlarge!

 Below: My very rough pencilled lay-out design for the piece...

Below: Firming up the pencils...I wanted the girls grouped fairly close together, even tho it meant the drum would be obscured. I had another idea for a way to include the famous JOSIE logo..

Below:The logo is placed on the front of the bandstand! Once reducing the overall size of Valerie (far right), the finished pencils are now ready to go!

Below: The finished inked illustration! I used variations of the girl's famous "leopard skin" outfits, trying to give each band member a bit of individuality!

Michael Nesmith "Concert Poster" Artwork!

Produced for a website hyping upcoming Monkees-related events, here is my design for a site link for a round of solo Michael Nesmith (or "Nez," as he's known to hardcore fans) concerts! I used Photoshop to produce the "1800s wanted poster" look, along with several "western" borders, bits of clip art, and type! Click to enlarge!

Below: My inspirations used in creating the above poster image!
