For the remainder of the month I will be operating as Eeek! Johnson (@IllustratorErik). Mind you, that's Eeek! with a K.
Theres a full moon tonight. Things are going to get hairy.
I was inspired to do something in the vein of the publicity photos of Lon Chaney Jr. for his role as The Wolf Man and with my facial hair, it was an easy look to emulate. You can imagine my surprise when I finished the picture this morning only to discover that there is indeed a full moon this weekend. Talk about timing!
Because I love to share the things that inspire my work, here are are some of the photos I was looking at while drawing this new self portrait. Also, I accidentally took a screencap of myself posing to match the monster which is just too amusing not to share as well.
Have a Happy Halloween!
