I drew this for a Flight of the Conchords poster design contest a couple of years ago. I didn't win, but it was fun coming up with a design.
The poster is an ambigram, so there is no right side up.
Coming up with layout was quite the work in progress because it had to be viewed from two different angles. I did a lot of sketches.
And here is the ambigram itself.

Another one from the vault. I made this little guy about five or six years ago now, and it's become Easter tradition to post him on whatever new blog I have that year.
It's pretty awesome; here in New Zealand they give us a whole week off of school for the Easter holiday. Unfortunately I'm just going to spend the whole time doing homework though.
I'm still really not happy with the border that I gave it. Maybe next year I'll come up with something else.

The Electric Mayhem taking Animal out for a walk. I was originally going to draw a woman running away in front of him, but I rather preferred the idea that this is what it's always like to walk Animal.
I tried to make this one look a bit more like one of my cut-outs. In fact, I was originally just going to do this as a cut-out, but decided against it because it would have taken me months to finish (instead of hours).
This one is another illustration from the vault.

It's been a while since I did any personal drawing, so I've decided to start dragging some of my older drawings out of the vault. I've been meaning to repost a lot of my artwork since my old blog went tits up, so this is as good of an excuse as any.
This is my version of the famed Fiji Mermaid. I wanted to play off of the fact that Fiji mermaids were usually just mummified monkey torsos sewn onto dried fish bodies.
I really enjoyed messing with the colors and lines in this one too.
