Dia de los Muertos by Cam Giblin

Design for my friend George from New Mexico. He let me have complete creative freedom on this pair, all the way up to choosing the subject matter. Tried to stay pretty true to Dia de los Muertos tradition by incorporating the makeup, skull candies, flowers, picture of loved one, etc.

Since I've been using a fume mask I've noticed a huge decrease in headaches and general wooziness while I work on a pair. I don't care that the U.S. Labeling of Hazardous Art Materials Act has labeled the markers "nontoxic", these things kill.

This was, by far, one of my favorite pairs to create.

ZOMBIES 2: Electric Boogaloo

Not much to say about this pair. Had a lot of fun doing it. I think I drew some killer (har har) hands on the backs. There's a painfully obvious Tony Moore influence, but they say steal from the best, so there you go.

Pretty simple pair.

I was able to start and finish them entirely during an Indiana Jones marathon on TV.

I was working on the halftone background about the time the priest was ripping the still-beating heart from that guy's chest.
