The freelance job is finally officially done. The majority of the images I provided were purchased for a considerable sum of cash, which I promptly used to buy a ludicrous amount of hookers and coke new laptop for Nicole. I considered posting the images up here, but I really don't feel like coding all that shit, so here's a few of the images that weren't used:
Some variety of tea-containing device with floral designs. Ask Mary what it's called, I can't be bothered to remember.
A tea-strainer/Australian torture device. This image was scrapped in favor of a different model.
So yeah, that's the basic style of the images. Pretty easy stuff. They asked for clean and simplistic so I just modeled the color and stroke style after the customer's pre-existing logo. It's very different from the stuff I usually draw (cartoon dick on park benches) but it was fun to experiment with something that was completely and totally out of my zone.
In an unexpected twist however, it did open an opportunity for another paying mini-gig that is more in line with my style. When I initially went to the store to talk with them about this job, I showed the lady that was interviewing me the three Bump in the Night prints I had completed (The Boos, Nigel the Vampire, and Ralph the Wolfguy). She saw that I had a yet-to-be-completed piece with Doctor Frankenstein, his assistant, his creation, and The Bride and she's offered me some cash to finish it up for her husband's birthday.
Now, this is a piece that should have been completed a long time ago, but now I'm getting paid to finish a piece that I was eventually going to finish anyway. So uh...hooray procrastination? I need to put together the background, and I'm thinking about re-drawing Junior the creation, but that's about it. Should be a night's work, tops.
Obviously, I'll be posting the finished piece up here when it's done, and I'm still looking for a logical means to sell my prints online. If anyone has any suggestions, hit me up.
In a similar note, a lot of people have been telling me to put my stuff up at a local art show/gallery/thing as well as making some stuff for tshirts and whatnot. I'm vehemently opposed to the gallery thing for reasons too numerous to post, but enough people are insisting on it, so I have a horrible nagging suspicion that I'm going to give in and eventually do it. I'm still brainstorming the tshirt/apparel idea, It's just a matter of coming up with a design/s and creating it/them.
And the rest: RX Bandits are amazing, Bioshock 2 has exceeded all my expectations, and I really need a haircut.
