Mad Men Art

Periscope’s Tumblr sketch blog series continues this week with a Mad Men theme. Sarah and I are actually just watching the series right now, so it would’ve been madly lame to not contribute, especially since I love the early sixties.

I needed to do a little polishing on my GN for the publisher last night, so I whipped this up while waiting for inDesign files to render.

I don’t know what kind of BB gun Mrs. Draper actually shoots on the show, but I’m sure someone will correct me soon enough. Looking down the page, I’m seeing a theme of ladies in sheer things. Must change up my game.

Thumbs and Finished Art

I’ve been making another editorial pass over my book, Dear Creature, (formerly Sea Freak) for the publisher. My brains are awash with m-dashes and hyphens. Must make consistent. Must organize.

From the thumbnail example here, you’d never think punctuation inconsistency would be an issue for me, would you?

Thank goodness for digital lettering.
