“Whappity Whappity”


If you are a lurker from Imgur (and you might be one) then the ol’ Whappity Whappity Stormtrooper meme in not lost on you… for all other’s here is a fun “in process” project for the upcoming central New York Tech Garden gallery exhibit “Star Wars vs. Star Trek: The Logical Choice”.

(Above) Pencil drawings and roughs always come first. Notice all the smudges and eraser crud?


Laying down red color layers. Watercolor, liquid acrylic and gosh knows what else!


Greys and blacks are the last step along with touch-ups and overall composition checks. Thanks for scrollin’ and if you’d like to pick up a print.

Just a fast rough of a very nerdy geeky tattoo illustration featuring binary! A that lil’ orange guy? The lovely Smashing Magazine mascot. The round guy rolls around the studio making sure all is running smoothly.

This post first appeared on February 2nd, 2014. The loveable cute plush Smashing Magazine mascot was a prize won as a result of being a winning submission (“Pantone Catalyst”) for Smashing Magazine’s annual photography 2013 contest.
