(y)our band is over

Two sweet bands, two final shows, two posters. I'm really glad we got to play with the Insurgents before they (and we) broke up.

Ideally the poster for our final show shoulda been more upbeat or just generally not so grim, but nothing was really working for me, and thus, that cheery image. I always struggle with designing stuff for FTS for some reason. Too close to it I guess. I didn't feel like expressly stating "FINAL SHOW" or words to that effect on the poster, but I'm assuming people will be able to get the general gist from the imagery at hand.

The guy in the Insurgents poster looks oddly familiar, no? I hate text. As I'm starting to enjoy drawing more and more, it seems directly proportional to how much I hate laying out text. Or at least doing posters that require a ton of text. Grr. GRR!

Today someone said "draw me a monster". so I did. and I liked it. Then someone else wanted one. Did one for them too, but didn't like it as much. Then the first person asked for another one later in the day.  Since I've basically been procrastinating, I did another.   It was better than the second one, but not as good as the first.

Anyway, they're below in chronological order. They were done fairly quickly... 10-20 mins~ roughly... which is real quick for me! I'm going to try and get into the habit of doing this  regularly, as a means of playing around with drawing and just to generally sharpen up. They're all done in flash. and I'd just like to say that I dig the legs on the first one.
