Why hello there. I've got another illustration for my "LA-LA Land" column in the next issue of LA Weekly (out this Thursday).
[EDIT: Whoops! Apparently I'm not in this week's issue after all. I'll let you know when it IS out.]
You know the drill:
1. A lady hawking counterfeit wares...fake designer bags, watches, jewelry, etc.
2. A bunch of drunk club-goers out on the streets after a night of partying, ravenous for some street food. I wanted their "attack" on the taco truck to look like a scene out of a zombie movie.
3. In honor of Thanksgiving, this idea was supposed to feature a cornucopia of sorts of an eclectic assortment of food. But in this case, cornucopia = garbage can and feast = discarded fast food.
Anyway, the second idea was chosen, duh. The other ideas were admittedly kinda lame? I really wanted to do the zombie/drunks thing. AND I DID:
"Night of the Living Drunks"
Ink, acrylic, and gouache on paper
12.75" x 7.75"
[ADs: Jason Jones and Darrick Rainey... Thanks guys!]
Hope you like it! I had a lot of fun making it. It should be in the next issue, so pick one up when you get the chance. OH, and have a very happy Thanksgiving while you're at it!
