Picnic

I squeezed in a bit of time for a new illustration amidst my European travels, and it happens to have a perfect theme for the US 4th of July weekend:

This is available as a hi-res wallpaper. If you're interested in a print, drop me a line at prints@rob-sheridan.com.

Here is the original sketch, and here is the pre-colored outline. While I was working on this I thought I'd lost all my coloring due to a corrupt file and would have to redo hours of work, but Steve from Corel came to the rescue and was able to recover the corrupted Painter file. Huge thanks to him for helping me out there - I've now upgraded to Painter 11 to avoid any file corruption issues in the future. It was long overdue, anyway.

My next task is to finish work on Broken Robot Girls number two and three, so hopefully you'll be seeing those before too long.

I've also been taking a lot of photos while traveling, like this one (click to enlarge):



You can find a lot more in my tourist galleries and on my Flickr.

After a day of dealing with Tourists that illustration is oddly cathartic and appropriate.
How in the hell you are able to do your day job AND get a really great work like that done at all is beyond me.
But Thanks and Cheers all the same.
Safe Travels.

I'm sure you're busy enough as it is, but maybe Tim Burton would be happy to play with your work. I'm sure you've all the connections you'd probably need it just seems like a good idea.

Your picture reminds me of this song. If your picture was real life I think she would karate chop the monsters!

what was perhaps the reasoning behind this piece? I am curious why only the man is being eaten and the girl seems to be passed out?

The colors are beautiful though, very nice touch.
