El Zombo Pinup
Dave Wilkins / El Zombo
El Zombo is the brainchild of comic artist Dave Wilkins, and is the story of the unlikely friendship between a temperamental undead wrestler and an equally difficult 10-year-old girl from East L.A.
I was delighted to receive a commission from dave to produce a single page 'pinup' for the book, and with total creative freedom I decided that a big crazy scene with our zombie wrestler hero amidst a sea of ghoulish shenanigans would be a treat for the eyes.
This is drawn using Adobe Photoshop, my trusty left hand, and with special thanks to Dave Follett for colour consultation.
Gift Caricature / Ben Porteous
Best known for his role as Dr. Terence Elliot on Australian TV drama's "A Country Practice", actor Shane Porteous also worked as an animator, and is a proud father and grandfather. I was delighted to be commissioned to draw him as a gift from his son, Ben.
This is rendered with brush and ink on watercolour paper, using a watered-down ink as a wash for the grey areas.
Like all my work, the process always starts with a quick thumbnail for concept and composition, followed by a sketch, and with approval I move on to the finished art.
