Zombie Whisperer Magazine Covers #2

May 26, 2013

More covers showcasing Tony Mallone!!

Modern Zombie Cover #5

A cover using a “Modern Pet” cover as reference. When I was working on this, I kept singing David Bowie’s “Modern Love” to everyone’s dismay. That’ll happen again if we ever revisit this Modern Zombie template. LOL.

Zombie Whisperer Magazine Covers #1

May 22, 2013

The thing about this project is that Zombie Whisperer Tony Mallone, much like Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan, is a worldwide celebrity, and a household name. In order to replicate that sort of fame for the project, one of the tasks I took on were to create mock-magazine covers that we’d post throughout social media and websites. With the idea that we keep posting one every other week or so, we’d be able to gain an audience through the quirkiness and semi-realism of the covers.

P.E.T.Z. Cover #1

The cover for the “newest” edition of P.E.T.Z. (People for the Ethical Treatment of Zombies) This was the first one we did, and the one with the simplest design. Came out really clean, and it’s been used as a prop for Episode 2.

Yea! Weekly Cover #2

This was the first attempt we made at for something more of a supermarket TMZ rag selling the fact that he is a celebrity and will be under the microscope a lot. I liked this one a lot for a while, (because I was on the cover, as well! LOL) but as things went all, you’ll see that they got better and better with each new one.

The Son: Tony to Blame… Cover #3

I was going to make a tabloid one for Tony Mallone if it killed me or not. This is where I just went crazy with the cover and the “content”, while staying true to what I felt the concept of Zombie Whisperer was. I just love how I was able to put that the Macho Man Randy Savage stopped the Rapture from happening for us. LOL.

The Dirtsheets: Sasquatches in Studio City Cover #4

This is one of those Enquirer tabloids you see at the supermarket. My favorite contribution to this, aside from the fact that it really feels like a gritty tabloid magazine, is that in Studio City, SoCal locals were angry and frustrated with yetis.

Zombie Whisperer Promo Art

During my inactivity of posting, and keeping myself way too busy, I’ve illustrated some promotional pieces that have been thrown in Facebook for Zombie Whisperer.

One is, the Star of Zombie Whisperer, Tony Mallone drawn in ink, semi-manga-esque:

The second is Tony Mallone illustrated in a style influenced by the Batman: Animated Series:

AX’s Girl Mascot Ai Cyber Monday Ad

May 21, 2013

I did a bit of work for Anime Expo as of late, and one of the things I created was the artwork that they used for their website, advertising their Cyber Monday sales. Using the reference, I did my take on their mascot, Ai, and they used it to create some banners and online ads.

Tune in Tokyo – Sakura Bomb 11

May 21, 2013

Their event this time was a Halloween Anime Rock Party! I did a bunch of these because I couldn’t decide what costume they may have wanted to showcase on the flyer. (I put some of the unused ones on the Random Kawaii Girls entries) The art that won out at the end and was chosen was the Bumblebee Chick.

Tune In Tokyo – Sakura Bomb 9

May 21, 2013

The theme was to make anime charactures of the band Apocalipstick to use for the flyer. I was watching the K-On! Ending Don’t Say Lazy as inspiration, and this is what came out.

Tune In Tokyo – Sakura Bomb 10

May 21, 2013

The event was for their ‘Back to School’ event party. The theme for the girl in this flyer was a schoolgirl with a guitar. I drew inspiration from the Jrock group Scandal for this one, and it came out as one of my stronger pieces.

Tune In Tokyo Royal/T Flyer Art

May 21, 2013

I had the pleasure of creating the last flyer for Tune In Tokyo’s final Royal/T event on August 15, 2012, during Royal/T’s last month in business. I drew a cute anime girl dressed in their waitress’ usual attire. I posted a picture of it on my facebook page that still rings true to this day, that it was “the most damn kawaii french maid I’ve ever drawn.”
