IF: Golden

Here's my submission for this week's Illustration Friday.  I had a different idea I wanted to do but this week has been quite busy so I dug up this bad boy I had done a while ago and had never posted.  I can't wait 'til I'm retired and pretending to be senile so I can do weird stuff like this.  See how happy he is?  Who would want to deny an old man this level of joy?  The "golden" can either be his shirt or the representation of the "golden years."  Either way this looks like fun to me.

Why I don't take baths

Here's a little piece I did for fun in my sketchbook.  This was one of those amazing times where I was able to create almost exactly what was in my mind.  I pictured this giant Lucha Libre type gorilla cyborg thing exploding out of something and I had been reading some of my Hellboy comics lately (I love Mike Mignola's art).  I made a quick judgement call to make him exploding out of a bathtub to add to the oddness of the image and put some kid in front to really show the scale of this thing.  My son suggested I name it Gordon because "Gordon seems like a good name for a gorilla doesn't it?"  Yes.  Yes it does.  I might add a background in Photoshop later but for now I'm quite pleased.

He's just pissed 'cause he got soap in his eyes.
