GERMAN RUNNERS WORLD

Post by Frank Stockton » Tue Mar 25, 2008 6:43 pm

Hello,

I just did this for the German Runner's World. It's due tomorrow but I still have to do four little black and white icons for them. I hope they like it.

I'm kind of torn on this one lately because I've been pushing myself so hard. On one hand I'm doing some of the best work I've ever done but on the other I feel like I'm too busy to do an awesome job on everything that passes in front of me-- and that's really all I want to do.

Anyway, its a piece about running a 5k versus a 10k, versus 21,1k, etc. I didn't actually see an article so not much of a concept to go on.

Here are the icons that go with the last illustration. These are about 25% bigger than they would appear at...

Nice, Frank. I like how you made him look like a business man in the face, and with everything in order to start running. Very german. I also like the icons, - haha, the 5KM-dude looks so chilled and just jogging in. I run 3 km the other day and I was gasping! ;P

Penthouse

Post by Frank Stockton » Fri Mar 28, 2008 2:49 am

Hello,

I just finished my first gig for a dirty men's magazine: Penthouse! I'm happy to have finally gotten a chance to do something "sexy." Every other time I've come up with a sexy solution the art directors have shied away.

I tried to keep it both classy and hot.

The story is about some girl who gets off in public meeting some guy at a rock show. I know, not super creative but makes for an entertaining story. I left out some of the lascivious details because that's just how I do.

Oh, there are two versions of the 2nd illustration because after I finished them all I thought it was too bland.

The flower/bee tattoo is awesome. And I definitely like the pink bg better than the gray...not that you asked...

It's great work as always, Frank. Very enjoyable, and sexy without being too overt about it.

If you're looking for crits, in the one where the guy is putting his hands in her skirt, her arms look uncomfortably short and skinny compared to the other shot where they are trim, but perfectly proportioned. *shrug*

Nice tatts on both of the characters, and these are nice pieces all around.

Coool. Well, looks like I'll have to go pick up an issue of Penthouse. I normally NEVER do, but I guess I'll have to. FOR YOUR SAKE.

A guy who didn't work on the film but was closely associated with the director (and, I've been told, is more than a strong "influence" on him, stylistically...) is Nicolas DeCrecy, one of my all-time favorite artists. I LOVE the way he draws. You should look into his work if you can, but unfortunately he only has I think one book in print in the US and its not one of his best. Maybe Stuart Ng will sell you an over-priced book of his art :)

Hey Frank. really dig this one a lot. palette's great and what jumps out to me is the little girl's face and hair. for some reason the way that it's kinda messy sells the surfer vibe.

Best Life revisited

Post by Frank Stockton » Sun Apr 06, 2008 8:07 pm

Hey peeps,

2 weeks ago I posted 3 half-page illustrations for Best Life magazine, an article about "how to be a better dad"

Anyway, they called me a few days after I turned them in and said the nature of the assignment had changed and wanted to commission a new, full-page illustration from me to start the article off.

After a li'l back and forth we came to this solution, which is just a full page based on the first part of the article, "Parking Lot Rules," which is basically a phrase a good dad will utter to his son or daughter that lets them know "ok I want you to stand by my side right now because something about this environment makes me want you close by my side." Of course usually it would be said in a parking lot :)

Pascal this one's for you!
