more ads, but lil' ones!

More advertisments, this time from the back pages of MWMagazine.  For those who aren't in on the joke(s):  Ephemerol is the drug given to pregnant women in David Cronenberg's SCANNERS, and Betathanatine is a recreational drug in Richard K Morgan's "Takeshi Kovacs" books, specifically the first installment, ALTERED CARBON.  The other two just made me laugh.
Point of note:  I've been poring over 1950s clipart for days, and these are based on that aesthetic, but they're still my drawings.  And they're meant to look a bit wonky and/or slapdash.

"That's a mighty good smoke!"

Leave it to me to start something new whilst still struggling to finish current projects.  This is a full-page ad from the pages of Monster Women Magazine.  And yes, of course I'm designing a real pack of Mighty Gud's.  Who wouldn't want a blend of 37 herbs and tobacco, scientifically* guaranteed to improve your smile as well as your wits?

"*": not scientific, nor guaranteed

unfinished stuff

I really have been working.  Life has been trying to get me so as always, I'm drawing/painting my way out of the hole.  Lost a few weeks along the way, but that's to be expected.  So.

All of these are in-progress, btw.  Top is a a straight copy of a pulp cover for practice (and to decipher that style of painting), then a bit for some fake advertising, then yet another Monster Women piece.
