This illustration was a contribution to the fifth issue of La Furie des Glandeurs. I won't get into a lengthy description but I will say the issue's themes were travel and migration.

This faux poster for Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof was a contribution to the latest issue of F/I/M²/P. The original posters (like the film itself) also replicated the feel of a 70s exploitation movie but what they did was replicate the style without overemphasizing one of the film's selling points: Kurt Russell playing a badass again. In attempting to try a different approach, I ended up doing just that.
The title lettering also functioned as a bit of a personal throwback. While sketching this out, I remembered once going through an Alex Ross sketchbook and looking at how accurately he would redraw the title on every sketch he'd do for a comic book cover. I figured it'd be a shame to let my graphic design education go to waste... Drawing the title ended up being the most enjoyable part of working on this poster.

These two were started a while back while I was waiting for a very long document to be typed up. The first one was finished during the wait but the second was completed while I was up in an area named Khiara (for non-Arabic-speaking readers, it translates to Cucumber). That second guy was initially supposed to be some kind of fish zombie but it was up there that everyone pointed out he looks like a cucumber... Take a long look at him and enjoy eating your salad from now on folks.
Each of these was drawn on a post-it with different colored bic pens. The first color that was applied was the green. It's not as strong as the black or red pens so it's ideal to start drawing with. The black's good for finishing up the darkest areas and then the red's good for embellishing it... or adding blood.
Enjoy that salad.
