Work in Progress: Mastodon

Work in Progress: Mastodon Sketch & Ink

Here’s a shirt design I’m working on for the band Mastodon courtesy of Warner Bros. Records. They are great because they allow our designers to be really creative and have fun.

About the Author, William Beachy

I grew up in Cleveland Hts. Ohio and was drawing constantly. As a child I took art classes at the Cleveland Institute of Art and eventually became known as the "class artist." I graduated from The Ohio State University's department of Industrial Design. I have always tried to blend my passion for illustration with Graphic Design. Go Media was the culmination of my interests for both business and art. I'm trying to build a company that is equally considerate of our designers AND our clients.

    Gitamba,
    Actually, I am inking with a real paint brush (#2) and India ink. This is not a digital inking.

    Oh wow, that’s awesome, I was wondering because the digital ink you guys do is something I’m trying to learn because manipulating strokes in illustrator with a mouse is getting lol taxing.

    With regards to a school… please read my comments following the article: “An Open Letter to Students” also posted on this blog.

    We don’t have a strong opinion on schools. It’s a somewhat subjective thing.

    Collect all the info you can and pick the school that you think best fits you.

    I got a glimpse of the final and thought it was a cover for Thor. Would be a cool sequence with some close-ups, fists and lightning in our face.
