Barnes and Noble 2010 Kid's Calendar
I'm using watercolor with digital now, and I've always loved airbrush. Now I can get those flat graded areas up next to the beautiful natural flow of the paint.
These little characters are part of what I love about the paper dolls in the 30's and 40's..In this case they are dressing up in costumes to fit their adventures through time and space. I actually used fairly sophisticated references. Funny to see them transposed to comics.
Also, the job involved creating all these little stickers, which was a trip. You know..
"Haircut Day", "Worst Day ever" and "Ate at a Restaurant" to paste into the calendar.We could all use some of these, right? Like Twitter, only completely different.
You can buy one (the calendar comes with markers) for a child in your life at:
