"cosplay" fun. 1 of 4

So here's a bit of a reveal for the fun of Halloween! I would love to have a little something around the borders to make this more exciting, but I will have to wait until later with these.

So what on earth is Taylor dressed as?

First of all, this is obviously the Anime segment of the card series. I plan on doing all 4 of these ideally. Taylor here is dressed as Tamaki from Ouran High School Host Club. Actually an incredibly adorable anime and manga series. I don't care much for giving a synopsis as the plots usually sound dumb. But below is the "full" version and then the inspiration. Enjoy!

Obviously large stylistic differences are due to the fact I don't want to have it identical to the actual show. Done in pen and copic marker on bristol board.

And I need a favor. Really silly. Unless it can be answered here. Could anyone during the walks ask Zac Hanson which character he would be in Final Fantasy? I know. Really dorky. But I need to know so I can get his piece done in a timely fashion. I have Isaac set to be Tuxedo Mask from Sailor Moon, but Zac? I've been torn between Vaan and Wakka. Help!

Donation Art

Apologies for the lack of art last week. I'm starting on a new project for a friend's film

In the meantime I donated some art to this Cafe Press Shoppe's Aids awareness area where all the profits go to Toms Shoes. Go check out their cause.

And enjoy the art! And go support it! Whoot!

We all live in a Yellow Submarine

First of all a little Get well soon art for Isaac.
Good gracious! It's been a heck of a week! Poor Isaac getting sick like that and needing surgery~ Wow. But I need to say, the fandom has been AMAZING! As a team, the Live Journal Hanson Community tried getting him flowers (so sweet) and were raising money for TOMS Shoes and HIVSA. I admit to donating as well (only $5 I'm a poor artist hehe). I didn't go to the Philadelphia, NYC, Baltimore or DC walks/shows that were in driving distance, and I wanted to show my support somehow. Such a lovely way. I adore the fandom's shining stars. :)

But anyhow above is the clover-or clubs. I figured three leaves, three guys. Made sense to me. :) The style this one emulates is Peter Max. Best known for his work in the 60's and art in Yellow Submarine. It's a tricky style to do but it was fun giving it a swing!
