Facebook can actually lead to some work. A friend of mine saw a post from a band looking for an illustrator and recommended me. Connections were made, art and commerce followed! They were looking for a half panda / half unicorn hybrid. My original take was to try something a bit more serious and aggressive. It just didn’t feel right, so I tried out the strange beast you see above. The client was happy with this guy, as was I.
I enjoy working with musicians. There’s a kind of kinship between artists of any form, I find. Sometimes. Usually. Definitely in this case, though. Their music is awesome, too. Take a listen (the music doesn’t kick in for a few seconds, be patient):
Head over to their bandcamp page and pick up a copy of that song. Good stuff, support independent artists.
