This is what happened when I took the neon colours, mistral type face and horizontal lines from the artwork used in the recent Drive movie and pitched it against the hilariously funny Kenny Powers from East Bound and Down.
Like the subject matter it covers I’m completely addicted to the TV series Breaking Bad. I cooked up this little illustration of Walter White aka Heisenberg using nothing but the purist blue Adobe Illustrator.
I was recently bought season one of Curb Your Enthusiasm for my birthday and have been hooked since. Like anything that I become slightly obsessed with I always like to give a bit of a creative high five, or a tip of the cap! Adobe Illustrator was my weapon of choice, 5 hours later here are the fruits of my labour.
This is a bit of a high five to my favourite show on TV, there is always that worry, will new seasons be better than the old? Does it still capture the magic of the first? Many have tried and failed, but Dexter seems to go from strength to strength. Most of the work took place in illustrator roughly tracing an image from Google. I used a calligraphy style stroke just so the lines weren’t straight and even. Using reds and deep yellows I wanted to capture the warmth of Miami but also the blood spatter from his job. The final few bits were done in Photoshop, overlaying some blood spatter, brush textures and a smudge of paint for the background.
