Illustration update for Mucho Burrito's 'Vote Your Favourite Back on the Menu' campaign (#muchoelection). The chosen winner would receive free burritos for a year! Wouldn't that be amazing?
Here's the final product! Gotta say I do enjoy these darker themes. What do you think?
So I've got some 18x24" (out of 100) to sell tonight (DOS Show) as well as one giant 24x36" framed print! Come through, say hello, and let's taste some tacos with tequila together!
So, I'm currently working on some new skull work for the upcoming DOS show. In the mean time, check out the skull I did for La Carnita restaurant below. :D
La Carnita restaurant approached me to create a new limited edition (I think it was 1000) skull art print for them. If you don't know, La Carnita is pretty well known in Toronto for it's take on Mexican street food (mostly tacos), with a modern flair. The interior is a fun mix of graffitti, and layers of printed skulls on the walls.
Being my third time to create a skull for them, I couldn't help but think I was out of ideas, as I had done at least 6 skulls (La Carnita included).
At the time I was really drawn to simple patterns and shapes. Also for some reason, I kept thinking that I had to brand it somehow, and include some sort of reference to carnita tacos.
Anyhow take a look at it from start to finish!
Yes very luminato mixed with that cute little piggy from 'Babe'.
...or one of the pyramids could be from space? hmm.
Blocking out shapes.
Adding way too many things...
At this point, realizing a little too much is going on.
FINAL VERSION: 5x7" 1000 prints. Stripped the elements down for the final, realizing that less is more. Voila!
