fat = funny

Post by Frank Stockton » Tue Oct 17, 2006 5:07 pm

Hey guys & girl,

I have been working (slowly and in my spare time) on a packaging project for a "joke" gift company--designing everything from the packaging to the logos, bla bla bla...everything. Anyhow, part of the job requires drawings done in reverse for a puff-paint silkscreen design, which requires a line that never gets smaller than 1/8"

These drawings are being printed in the puff paint, on a black ground with a lighter color. Is that confusing enough? Anyway, the oldest is at the bottom, and I had to do a lot of revisions to that one because, well, it's pretty detailed. I learned my lessons with the other two. Anyway, I'm happy with the drawings but they're nothing I would ever get the chance to show in a portfolio or anything.

Enjoy

Frank

Ooh I like your character designs... He looks like a Gasoline Alley character. You draw lard with such loving attention.

Good all around. The best one is where he has to carry his lard around in the wheelbarrow. :D

edit: crap, Neil beat me to use of the word 'lard' while I was writing. :(

I understand fatness better than most.

A friend of mine does his artwork in a similar manner so he can get that woodcut look without actually cutting wood (How much wood would a woodcut cut...). Anyway, nice stuff! If you get any sample of the final product, take some photos so we can see!

I LOVE these. Especially the one on the top. Your refinements out of necessity ended up improving the style.
