I had a lot of fun with my "Quarter 'Kee and Bastard Pistol" thesis, but I wanted to use this semester's project to gently nudge my brain out of its comfort zone and satisfy some rather unrepresented categories in my portfolio. I decided to take on a series of portraits (rather than my usual improvised characters) depicting duos in today's comedy scene (no Laurel and Hardy, sorry). I also wanted to do illustrations that would appeal both to those familiar and unfamiliar with the real-life subjects. Y'know, something to intrigue the uninformed but also reward the hardcore fan. This meant sprinkling in a lot of inside jokes, which I hope will be fun for you guys to see.
The first in my series is one of my favorite working creative teams, Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer, the minds behind The Venture Bros. They're probably one of the more atypical duos to choose for this series. But I really like them. And this is my project. So there.
