Something Different

Inspirated by 50's cartoonists like Jerry Warshaw.
this is one of a few illustrations I did for the layout of a school report on products to make vacation easier for people with a handicap (because Industrial Design is one of those few studies where you are acually expected to care about the layout ;) ). It was a lot of fun to go for a totally different style, but also darn hard. I found it is actually harder to give it this flat graphic look and still make it look good than to just go for realistic perspective, proportions and so on. Also, a style like this requires you to push the character designs to their extreme, which is pretty hard as well. Even though I had to go through those challenges, the speed was pretty sweet since it can remain pretty sketchy; 10-20 minutes for a finished illustration, try that with a painting :)
