Looks great. What's that pink-ish texture you used there, Robert?
I love the Batchelder tile fireplace...and I'm glad to see that Andy's put on a little more weight. For those who don't know, Rob's specialty is putting out his art on wooden postcards. They're delightful. This scan makes it look more like a pink texture...but that's actually woodgrain.
I'm sitting here with my spiked Egg Nog, hoping that this is the beginning of a Christmas-themed week at COVERED.
When I scheduled this post about a month ago, I was hoping it would be a Christmas week as well. However, I just didn't get any Christmas covers sent my way. I don't think I got any last year either. I don't think Christmas is as easy as Halloween since there is a huge horror genre that will work for that holiday. Christmas is a bit more difficult.Anthony is right in both ways. That fireplace is very inspired by Pasadena native and arts and crafts designer Ernest Batchelder. He's also right in that the cover is printed on wood veneer - curly maple veneer to be specific. That's what gives that strange ripple effect.
Curly Maple is my porn name.
Marvelous!The "real" Andy is way to skinny for a panda.
Another great drawing by RG!
Nice work. The change in mood is very apparent with the more realistic panda.Quite somber.
As a huge fan of comics and quality Christmas Illustration, I am enjoying both these images. Wonderful example of taking something that ain't broke and still making it anew in wonderful ways.
That panda is so darn adorable! Well done, Robert.
ooo…I love pandas. Here I bought a cuddly panda bag (L) that I can hardly put it down! I believe it is a GREAT find for every panda fanatic! hkpanda.freetzi. com
