Inception Comic Cover Contest

This was done for an art contest to create a comic book cover for prequel comic inspired by the film INCEPTION.

I decided to give this a go because I love comic book cover art and contests always really push you to do your very best. Plus, doing likenesses isn't a strength of mine so it was an opportunity to really work on it. I think I got Cobb's (Dicaprio) likeness reasonably well but Saito's (Watanabe) is only somewhat recognizable. I do like the color theory for this one. It's different than the usual, which I always like to see.

Harvard Lampoon Ad

My job placed an ad in Harvard Lampoon magazine recently. It's the longest running humor magazine and is kind of like MAD magazine for college kids, specializing in what some people call "dirty humor" and what I call "funny."

So, in keeping with the magazine's vibe, I was asked to help come up with an ad for one of the patch companies my company owns. While sitting with my marketing director coming up with some ideas I thought to myself, "What do college guys like?" The answer?

Drunk Chicks.

But seeing as I wanted it to be funny and not insulting to opposite sex I decided to take that phrase literally. Thus was born this ad. Hope you get a little chuckle out of it.
