Instagram round up. A pick and mix filled with day job illustrations, freelance previews, sketches and other stuff.
In between freelance and day job projects I need a little breather, so I clear my brain with little doodles. Here’s the round up of sketches from yesterday and today, instagrammed for that extra wowness.
For today’s retrospect, here are two pages. The first was early an early concept page for The Legend of Dorian Sanchez. I ended going with a different approach for the comic, although I love the messy grimey feel of it.
The second page was the actual end of Farewell Reginald or should i say the new beginning? it was meant as a reimagining of the rest of the story, occuring again. Now that weird blue ink? I found a giant bottle of expired ink from the 60s in a stationary store in downtown Amman, Jordan. The man working there told me the bottle had been sitting there since he began working there over a decade ago and just wanted to get rid of them. I bought that one bottle and the following year, bought the rest. Unfortunately they’re stuck in my place in Jordan, they weigh a ton so bringing them back wasn’t an option. Someday I shall redeem them! …Anyway like the pages posted yesterday, this page was exclusive to the print only version of FR and the previous page has never been seen by anyone. Now it’s available to all, because I love you, that’s all, I’m not trying to get into your pants honestly.
Oh and both pages are from around 2007.
More from the middle beasts blog.
I started up a blog with a few other illustrators from the region. It’s called The Middle Beasts. Between us we happen to be Jordanian, Lebanese, Palestinian, Egyptian and a whole load of sexy. Follow us and rock our worlds.
A middle feast for your eyes.
