In case anyone is interested, here are my submissions for the 2012 Australian Cartoonists Associations (ACA) annual Stan Cross Awards to be held in Newcastle, November 17. If you're keen, click on the individual links below to see the artwork in more detail – including sketches and process.
And here is the Illustrator submission page (below) featuring a double page spread Pickup Lines for People Mag, plus Blue Tongued Hipster, Spider Sense, NAFDA Chef, CAL Cartoonist, Plump & Spry Pigeon, and Bogdan Trole. Please click the image for a closer look...
I packed a lot into these - hopefully they print ok in the yearbook (*edit - just received the yearbook, and no, no they didn't! Oh well.) And speaking of which, the yearbook is published in black and white, so these images have been chosen to work in that format. If you're interested in seeing the greyscale versions, please click for the caricature and illustration B&W's. (In fact, I think the caricature one looks even better without the colour.)
Thanks for checking these out. Looking forward to catching up at The Stanleys soon! Always a great weekend.
