Dedication for Maurice Sendak


Today I dedicated this quick fan art for Maurice Sendak, who is one of my biggest influences. Hehehe, I borrowed Max's costume to dress Babu up so he danced with a wild monster and Abu. This medium I used is Mongol jumbo pencil and coupon bond. Heck yeah, I love MONGOL pencils at all times!!!

Next time, I'll make another dedication for
Edward Gorey (of course, another influence....) I was done painting my commission for Future Human today. Hope my client will like it soon. Wow... I think I will be busy this April.

Happy Happy Tuesday! See you guys!

Sooo, Mongol jumbo pencil is your magic wand, hehehe... :D That wild monster face is beyond adorable!! But speaking about this drawing, love, love, love the details and your fantastic work in what regards the shading. Will be looking forward to see your dedication to the wonderful Edward Gorey!

Oh, you've finished your commission work to the Future Human album cover? WOOTT!! They will surely adore it! Heck, we wouldn't mind to buy their album just to be able to look at it everyday :D

You will definitely have a busy April. Something that caught both our attention in the list that you made about your projects was you mentioning about doing two paintings about "The Midnight Dreams of Aya". From all the characters that you created she will always be one of our favourites. There is something about her eyes that bring so much warmth.

Phew, what a long comment, sorry about that :P heheh...

Much, much love and Magandang Martes!! :)
