Sometimes, no matter how much you like something or how long you’ve worked on it, things get rejected or you scrap it. These are two of those kinds of works.
I did this sketch a couple months back. I dusted it off, prettied it up, and sent it into my “boss” to see if we’d use it for anupcoming (REDACTED) job.
So, I did another sketch, a completely different idea. It remains to be seen if the new concept will be used. My guess is “no”, but we’ll see.
Here’s a half completed illustration for a Matt & Kim concert poster. There was a contest in which you’d win a fistful of free tickets (the Thermals are on the bill, which is why I was doing it. But Matt & Kim are fun, too) and some swag from both bands.
After spending an hour or so with this, I decided that my time was better spent doing… well… anything else. My heart is with Very Near Mint and some other ideas Lee and I are brewing, so spending time doing a free poster for a contest I probably wouldn’t have won isn’t my idea of a good time. I’ll let some other kid win those tickets.
Next time! MoCCA recap!
