Happy St. Patrick's Day! I created this leprechaun for a group mailing my agent, Portfolio Solutions, put together. Each artist had to illustrate a leprechaun with a pot of gold and a rainbow. I first tried to make the leprechaun look like he was hot tubbing in his pot of gold, but he just looked naked – and creepy. See sketch below…
Sorta like a white-trash leprechaun.
I experimented a bit with this project: there's a lot more texture than I usually use and the leprechaun is more cartoony and stylized. I think it's fun – and a style I want to explore.
And why the snake? I don't know. I think I was going for irony but, really, it's inexplicable.
|If this is what's waiting for me at the end of rainbow, I'm not interested.|
