Illustration, Print, T-shirts
A series of adorable creatures I spawned after I discovered a dusty old Wacom tablet on a particularly long night on duty in the military. There are times you look out at the inky blackness of the surrounding forest and the lone twinkling star above - and you're certain there must be life out there in the vast expanse of the universe.
Bring your critters with you with this lovely T-shirt print!
I've always wished I could do digital painting, but every time I try to use the tablet I find the skill simply evades me. These critters are the closest I've gotten to something decent -- though in retrospect I do wish I could've detailed these a little better. I'm not sure of the tablet was the best tool for this either (perhaps vectors would've created something cleaner). It was a relaxing exercise nonetheless :)
I've always had a fascination with little creatures, but when it came time to actually creating them, I found it quite a challenge to make them each look unique. I didn't have an active internet connection at the time, so I took my inspiration from nature - the snails outside, birds, goat horns, turtles...
