Here's an illustration I did based on the Red Sovine song Big Joe and Phantom 309 (later covered by my favorite devil-in-disguise, Tom Waits), which takes place in a time when boys could hitchhike across the ol' United States, a cup of coffee cost a dime and songs were bard's tales. This all makes me wax romantic about dusty summer nights driving through the desert.
Also, I've been heavily influenced by the fantastic M. Sasek this term, and I hope to be paying even a modicum of respect to his incredible work.
And since (I think) the process was good to put up with my last couple illustrations, here's the sketch for the piece. Oh, and the final was done in gouache on illustration board.
