Go Go, BOWL-ZILLA!


Here is the WIP.
I actually like some of the overlaps, the "off register" and various levels of treatment here....but since it's for a 9 year old's birthday party....
I'll be bringing it into "focus" a bit more.

(UPDATE):

And the finish...just in time for the party. Whew.
Basically I have a horizontal two sided card, and the individual Godz/MechaGodz mini-standees for all the party tables.




I've also included larger printable images of the two side card/ and the mini-standees for your own downloadable enjoyment.
For the monster standees, just cut on or inside the black line around the beasties, then cut and fold the backer as indicated...glue that sucker on the back of each beastie..and you've got a Kaiju standee for your Godzilla themed bowling party!

hi Paul,
Curious, do you ink your stuff by hand...or digitally with a Wacom?

Hey Tim,
USUALLY I ink by hand... but late last night I got lazy,
and rather than re-inking the whole Mecha-Godzilla, I thought I'd just re-do the tail in pshop with the wacom. Honestly, If I'd just get up off my chair and move over to the drawing board...

I think it's easier, quicker and that I gete better results with the "real" brush. At least for the look I was going for....

blah blah blah :)

Thanks for trying to comment on/visiting my blog, Paul. I really like how you work with type. Illustrators that use type well always pique my interest. :) I guess I will never escape my graphic design background!

This stuff is AWESOME. I have a Godzilla party request. Did you ever find any party supplies?

Paul Conrad said...

Kami-Thanks. Nope...didn't find anything else at the local party stores...but the stuff I made was a hit with the kids. Feel free to print it out and use it!
