Speedball...


These blogs are loaded with super talent, there are so many artists that showcase incredible character designs, I'm in awe of them... just check the links bar for proof... anyway, I realized that I don't have a single thing on this blog yet that shows anyone from head to toe. I imagine I'd better fix that so here's a caricature from a piece we did on Mr. Ed Benguiat. Ed is a living legend in the field of lettering and type, and a huge Yankees fan, hence the baseball/speedball lettering pen/ink theme. The guy's responsible for the original Planet of the Apes logo, the SuperFly logo and billions of great typefaces that we take for granted today. So, I know the arms/hands stink and his feet are loaves of bread, but deadlines wait for no-one and I promise I'll do better next time. I do like the quick inking style and I learned a lot from this piece which is all we can hope for sometimes.
