Quick entry to say that we’ve got a LOT in the work. Looks like it’s been quiet, but in reality, Kings is about to launch a new comic book for Honey & the Whirlwind and I’ve been working on a comic at Squid Salad. I’ll be blogging more this week on all the new things as we gear up for a crazy con season!!
I *love* the gorillaz! And have always been a giant Jamie Hewlett fan. I found out about their character competition just in time for the last round. >w< The character to draw is called the Evangelist and he/she is the opposite of the Boogie man. he/she is described as being an avenger and something of a cowboy/girl as well as has some kind of unicorn connection.
I thought it would be cool to make it a girl, not just in terms of opposite, but also in terms of being awesome for vengeance and revenge. For this doodle I combined parts of- kick ass-ness of the bride of kill bill and annie oakley and edmond mondego aka the count of monte cristo, the chaps/ vest and quasi religous conviction of el mariachi / the pinup kind of old look vintage girl on a bullet bomb unicorn gun with indiana jones’ whip. haha. Plus she has at least 8 hidden daggars.. maybe more… do you really want to know where they all are? ahahah! One of them is the unicorn horn in her goggles muahahahahaha AND i thought it would be kick ass to have bullets going down her arms, not just traditional belt.
cute girls plus big guns plus kicking ass = one my my fav things
