It’s all about that Bass..

Posted in Artwork, Copyright with tags , , , , , , , on December 2, 2014 by makingbelieve

The original sketch for this illustration was going to be a guy on his boat fishing, the caption would read “I’m all about that Bass”. But then I realized that in that context Bass is not pronounced like Bass, but pronounced as Bass. So I didn’t think the caption “I’m all about that Bass” would be as impactful as “I’m all about that Bass”… confused yet?… So my next thought was a musician playing a Bass shaped Bass. with the caption “I’m all about that Bass”. I figured going that way (wait for it) I’d have all my Bases covered.  But I played it straight went with Bass instead of Bass and came up with the illustration you’re looking at now.  It was “no treble” at all.  😉

Just cue the music..  Meghan Trainor – All About That Bass

Ah, there you are, and just in time! There’s a little matter I forgot to mention. Beware of hitchhiking ghosts! They’ll haunt you until you return!

I came up with this illustration on a recent business trip to Cincinnati. I stayed at the Netherland Plaza hotel. Which was opened in 1931 and is one of the world’s finest examples of Art Deco style. It is just filled with inspiration from the classic architecture to the two-story ceiling murals.

.. and did I mention it is haunted by the Lady in Green.

SPACEMANI always say, if a catastrophe destroys your space shuttle and leaves you adrift, spiraling out into the blackness…completely alone.. facing an almost certain death… pretending to perform an old soft shoe like Fred Astaire is just the remedy to lift your spirits. Because.. in space no one can hear you tap dance.

Random Projects

Sometimes the quick turnaround projects are the best. i think it has something to do with not over thinking yourself and going on instinct. The past four weeks were filled with just those kind of assignments. Tight deadline, need it now stuff.   First assignment was Simon the Lion, competing with several other illustrators  we were asked to design a mascot for a website.

Next was a brief character study for a digital ebook. The assignment was to give the client an idea how the illustrators, chosen to participate in this project, would approach his characters.

Finally, a spot illustration for a college magazine article about student athletes who are also leading their classes academically.
