Sugar Daddy / Babies

Here are some illustrations I did last week for the Miami New Times for an article about the south Florida sugar daddy scene. It was sort of a tough conceptual nut to crack because of how easy the targets are so I did a whole bunch of sketches: I ended up going a different direction, playing up the candy packaging / product character angle I stumbled upon with my last sketch. Here's how the lead illustration to the article turned out (ink & vector):And here are the two interior spots (ink & graywash):

These kick! Bout time someone made this illustration. The colors, textures, and characters are rocking my world. My favorite detail is the guy's unzipped fly.

It's so fun to see your process come to life in sketches! I'm not sure what's happening in the right side of doodles2.jpg, but I love that something's being poured into his pants. This is an amazing final piece, Dan. A perfect blend of hand and digital work. (and is it just me, or does the daddy kinda look like YOUR daddy... ? maybe it's just the hair. ;) )
