May we all enjoy “good madness” in 2013!

I see robots everywhere. Mundane shapes inspire a starting point. Aluminum cans, steering wheels, charcoal grills, etc. These sketchbook robots are done with sticky notes, gel ink pen and/or Sketchbook Pro.

This was just a quick color of something appropriate for the holiday. I did not do as a fine a job as the actual colorist, ~DaiKaiju (Brian Reber), did. See his published colors here.

Happy 4th of July everyone!
Help me out here, peeps! My buddy McGone is being overly modest regarding the quality of this piece. He rocked it, hardcore!. He has knocked out a Marvel-caliber cover of Cloak & Dagger. Seriously? Look at that! How hard is that to imagine?
LOST consumed many of our collective thoughts and theories for six season. More so than any other broadcast series in quite some time. McGone started these character studies with no other intent than just that. An artist refining his craft while paying homage to a story that had captured our minds and brought us along for a fantastic journey. My part in this loosely-termed project was very much the same. Inspired by line work that was better that most at capturing the similitude of these fascinating characters, I slowly began to add my own splashes of color. The Sunday LOST Post formed out of the ether over the winter since McGone had been so prolific. I decided to make it a challenge for myself to color one piece each week. Staying pretty true to that schedule I have stretched and honed my skills of the course of this experiment. One I truly enjoyed each and every brush stroke.
This collected image closes the book on LOST…for now.

Namaste. This piece officially ends the “surplus” Lost series ~McGone so beautifully penned and brushed.
After getting this one to the “sweet” spot only to have Photoshop freeze on me, this is the 2nd version.
Hope you all have enjoyed this LOST series as much as we have. One last surprise tomorrow.
Time to move on.
