• Very honored to have been invited for a second time to exhibit with Los Angeles based Pop-Culture Art Gallery- Iam8Bit for their recent exhibition based of those cult movies we all love and would love even more if the studios were to create a SEQUEL for them.
  • As soon as I received the invite I knew that I wanted to honor one of my favorite John Carpenter films " Big Trouble in Little China" but I wanted to shoot for a Prequel about the mysterious and brave Eggshen and his 6 Demon Bag.  So before getting started on the idea, I often like to whip up a vector study to better acquaint myself with the main character.
    Below is a time lapse of a 45min vector sketch created in adobe Illustrator with my wacom intuos pro ( and gives you all a sense of how I play on these projects.)

  • Below is the first quick vector sketch for the composition and how I set up my canvas with visual references.  My intent was to pay tribute to Drew Struzan who created the iconic movie poster and to have my illustration fit within the same personality ( plus I just wanted to have a print I can hang next to that would look like part of a series- hahah- i'm such a movie geek).
