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.

Broken Robot Girl #1

I'm working on a series of photos of broken robot girls, in collaboration with Tamar Levine. We're hoping to do four or five photos altogether. This is the first one - Tamar took the photo and I did the special effects in Photoshop. We're pretty happy with the way it turned out:

Here's a close-up so you can see some of the details:

For some of the other images in the series, we want the robots to be in much further states of disrepair - missing limbs and things like that. We're looking for someone with some skills in prop-making or fashioning mechanical parts who could help us create some cool-looking bits and pieces of robot joints and insides and other mechanical parts that would be coming out of broken-off limbs and cracked-open joints. If you or someone you know has any crazy sculpting/mechanical skills and might want to help out, drop me a line: rob (at) rob-sheridan (dot) com.

Crabwalk

SketchBlog returns! I can't believe it's been over a month since the last post. As some of you know, I've been extremely busy with other projects, but I finally had time for some drawing tonight, and I think I'll be posting on a regular basis again now. So here's a new wallpaper for you:

Oh, and if you hadn't noticed, there's now a pack of iPhone wallpapers on the wallpaper page (they're sized for the iPhone, but they'll work in other phones).

I'll post new artwork soon! In the meantime, if you're bored, you can enjoy some pictures I took of cheap/awesome alien tourist attractions during a recent stop in Roswell, New Mexico - click the photo for the full gallery:
