Illustration Friday – INFLUENCE

August 24, 2011

…under the influence.

A tip of the hat to my influence for this piece…Paul Coker and the Horrifying Cliche series he did for Mad Magazine. We’re talking waaaay back in the day, here.

    Ha ha! I think this kid’s under some heavy influence, for sure! And I do remember sneaking peeks in Mad magazines as a youngster…Learned a lot of new vocabulary words from that experience! ;o)

    Beautiful job! I love how the detail and color get stronger at the central point of the piece. The viewer really feels the weight on the boy…

    Love your use of colour and the dinosaur. I vaguely remember Mad Magazine but not the illustrations but you have done a great job. I can image this as a series.
