The meat part of her dress is kind of weird, haha. Reminds me of the mutated burgers from Good Burger. And I skipped the tomatoes on her hat because I DON’T LIKE THEM.
Also I love yellow shoes with white rubber Chucks-attitude for some reason. Goldilox had them too. I’m calling them Mustard Shoes.
P.S. I used Ray Frenden’s Photoshop Presets for all of this. First the red and blue pencils, then the Nib. I notice the Nib is super sharpened and works great if you’re starting out huge, but it makes it hard to erase things because you have to go back and sharpen the edges.
I’ve added some shiny-delicious junk food stickers to my RedBubble shop! There are cheeseburgers, french fries, hot dogs, and pizza. There are two distinct “styles” - one is angular and inky and inspired by the work of Jim Mahfood and Ashley Wood, the other is smoother and rounder inspired by diner/food cart artwork. I also have ramen noodles and cheese puffs in the sketchbook but I’m not sure if they will end up with the same aesthetics so I’m holding off on them for now.
Reblogging for reach. :3 I might actually buy some of my own stickers for once. Also might add a version without sparkles for the angular food, since they’re so flat.
I went to Smashburger while visiting my folks - they were at church and my similarly irreverent sister and I went shopping instead, ha. As we were waiting for our food I was considering the Smashburger logo and how “unsmashy” it is. Okay so they used the IMPACT typeface. I mean, lol, are you kidding?
So I scribbled out the basic idea and the 1-inch sketch that became this artwork on the back of a flyer I had for a mountaintop removal awareness event and liked it so much that I popped it into Illustrator and fleshed it out. I had so much trouble even deciding on these colors, and I still hate them. It has a bit of a 90s-Burger-King feel that I was trying to stay away from by not using identical color but it’s hard. I think this has a bit more potential to get farther from that if it had some more dimension (maybe I’ll keep working on it? Dunno. I should be working on a website and an album cover right now but here I am.)
