Here’s my take on Lucille. Her thirst for blood is unquenchable. “She’s a real Vampire Bat.”
All of a sudden I had this idea, that Superman and the Martian Manhunter were basically immigrants. They had lost their homes and found a new one on earth. Racist behavior and fear of exotic/alien things is often labeled with the term “xenophobia”. Not only is this term used in politics, but some people might know it from sci-fi movies and novels. Those connections lead me to create this design, where I had to find fitting aliens from different franchises, who where equally popular and well known and also had distinctive silhouettes that everyone would immediately recognize.
Through the links below you can find the design on different clothing store sites:
There definitely should be more Korrasami images and merchandise. I’ve spent almost the entire weekend putting this design together and I really hope that people get inspired to create their own depictions of this beautiful item. The series ended little more than a year ago and I have just ordered all four seasons to rewatch everything in a couple days. I’m looking forward to share the experience with some friends and really hope they get sucked into, the same way I did, when those episodes aired for the first time.
Here’s an update on one of my Sunnydale inspired designs. I had to change Ms Summers’ haircut just a bit to get a closer resemblance.
It’s also available at Teepublic.
The last few weeks were really busy and there was no time to post anything because I was working so hard. Last month I started re-watching “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” in its entirety and I’m still on season 2. Experiencing this classic show again for the fist time (It’s been more than 10 years ago since I last watched “Buffy”.) is not only generating this painful but dear feeling of nostalgia, but also spawns unforeseen bursts of creativity. Here are some designs I did after finishing the first season and cheerfully diving into the second. “Spike’s still a bad guy.” It’s crazy.
I’ve finally finished my Marceline “pin-up”. It took me almost a day to figure out which font I should use and how to put it on the picture without messing it up. My first idea was to use a an ornamental tattoo font but in the end I settled for horror-themed writing.
At one point I had a spiderweb in the background but it took too much away from the character and was a bit distracting. Another idea was to have everything but the axe-bass, eyes, lips and boots colored in shades of grey, but the blue pants felt too iconic to not have them in their familiar tone as well as the slightly “greenish” skin. When I started thinking about a good slogan/title dealing with “rad/red stuff”, Nancy Sinatra’s famous song Summer Wine came to my mind. Obviously, I changed the lyrics a bit.
