This summer my brother asked me: What if they did to other monster archetypes what Twilight did to vampires? And I said to him quite plainly, "horrible things."
This is the cover for a process book of any subject/story we wanted (for school). I chose to redo Creature From The Black Lagoon in a satirically Twilight way, after talking about it with my brother this summer. It was a tough choice between The Creature From The Black Lagoon and The Wolfman, but it's sometimes a lot more fun to draw scales instead of fur. I'll post some of the other pages from the book soon (more of a pamphlet, really)
This blog is where I will be posting school projects, as well as pieces from the past that I still like. The images on the blog are all from the period between 2005 and the present. I love to design characters and creatures, both real and imagined, so you can expect to see your fair share of both. I do a lot of anatomical studies, so you can bet on seeing a lot of naked guys and animals with no skin, but it's all part of the learning process. We'll try to enjoy it. Together.
"Plan to Fail" comes from a popular phrase my dad told me when I was just finished high school and just wanted to play video games all day instead of getting a job. He said "Tom, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail". It hit me like a ton of bricks, and it's still part of my central out look of the world. I become more and more aware of it's truthfulness and validity all the time. Always have a plan, and if you're too stupid for that, then just set goals for yourself. Either way, always move forward, always explore, always ask questions, always think for yourself, always challenge authority, and especially, always challenge yourself.
