The Adventures of Pete and Petunia
Above is my first entry for a new online sketch group called 'Bristol Whip.' The group, started by awesome-sauce artist Joel Carroll, showcases a set of drawings every couple weeks based around a common theme. Those themes are decided on a rotation of the blog's members and are entirely up to their own discretion. This one here is for the theme 'tattoo,' as chosen by comicbook power hitter, Ming Doyle. Being a child of the 80's/90's (and being a big nerd), my first thoughts went to little Pete's dancing tattoo Petunia, from the 1990's Nickelodeon show, 'The Adventures of Pete and Pete'.
I ran with it.
Dance, señorita, dance!
Annnd here's a look at the original tonal treatment:
Copic markers and pen and ink on bristol board.
Be sure to visit Bristol Whip to check all of the awesome entries that are up on the site. Currently there are some new posts up by Jemma Salume and Paul Maybury for this week's theme, Captain America. Woo!
