I always get these silly ideas in my head- parodies, rhymes, almost-rhymes…. one I’ve had bouncing around my head for a while has been Jurassic Squirrel.
It almost rhymes with Jurassic World, so I imagined the super scary scene in Jurassic Park where the t-Rex is in the rear view mirror of the Jeep, but with a giant squirrel instead. It felt like it would be hard to draw, so I didn’t do it.
Until! It hit me that I could draw it as the logo instead of the rear view mirror, and it has come to fruition!
It took a little bit of time to get everything how I wanted it. I couldn’t successfully download the Jurassic Park logo font, so I made do with one that I deemed close enough.
Overall, this was a fun challenge! It has also occurred to me to create “Jurassic Bark” with a canine skeleton…. would that be cool?
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.
