The elusive Illustrator

Proving to be as elusive as Big Foot or the Loch Ness Monster. Rarely seen outside his natural habitat.
Finally, proof that the illustrator Craig Phillips does exist.

Marcelo Baez, Craig Phillips and I got together in a local Wollongong Vietnamese restaurant for lunch and a chat about comics, illustration and one of life's great mysteries the shortcut keys in photoshop.
It was good to catch up with the guys face to face again and hopefully it wont be as far between untill the next meet up.

Marcelo and Craig, very casual.

Ghost boy

this illustration was created for the Deviant art illustrators club site which this months challenge topic was Ghosts.

I really wanted to try and get away from the usual guy in a sheet, spooky ghost yelling boo and inject some sort of feeling or emotion into the image.

not sure if I succeeded but I did try.

the monster

watched the old 1930 black and white Frankenstein again. It's still a classic. felt like doing a sketch and ended up coloring it.
the background texture is from a photo of some rocks I took down the local beach.
was a quick color job didn't want to spend too much time on it, it was just for fun.
