I am a big fan of silly, geeky humor. A lot of the t-shirts I’m designing are based on comic book or anime characters in silly situations. Today I made a new design with Galactus.
I had never heard of Galactus until my son became a big fan of Silver Surfer last summer and I heard lots and lots and lots about them both! The big takeaway with Galactus is that he is a devourer of planets. So….. I started to imagine him in different scenarios involving planets to eat. That’s how this idea of a young Galactus encountering a planet-filled gumball machine came about! I made a few sketches on paper, but it really came together when I messed around with it on Krita.
I am so tickled by this idea of a child Galactus encountering a gumball machine filled with planets! I just hope he has a quarter!
Making the planets was the best part of this process! I used all sorts of different tools in Krita to make them unique, and I think they turned out great. My mom didn’t know what this design meant, so clearly you have to know a bit about Galactus to get it. And that’s ok.
If you haven’t heard, for the past few months I’ve been designing t-shirts to sell on threadless! Here’s the listing for Galactus Finds a Gumball Machine. https://henryx4.threadless.com/designs/galactus-finds-a-gumball-machine?fbclid=IwAR2xD4NENw6betFiLFqkHzUWAiuYd5SonV62RE2uapnrN5SImWBpth3ahBE
