Final Monster Design

monster finalized

Finally close to completion on the shirt design. I’m open to any and all criticisms, (I know it looks a little like Kirby), so throw them all my way. There are still a few things I want to change. Hope to see some comments from you folks!!!

Well, it’s been a few days off of college and I still haven’t been able to pull myself away from doing work on the computer. One good reason was because of the recent AllMightys contest, themed Monsters and Mayhem. I mean, who doesn’t like sketching out a scary monster!? So I was pretty pumped about that and started sketching up a pretty nasty looking monster only to miss the deadline, since it was a European site and I forgot their hours are far ahead. SON OF A BEE-STING!

Anyways, I decided to move forward and work to finish the little guy in hopes of submitting the design to Threadless or GoApe Shirts. Figured it couldn’t hurt to post my sketches for now and show you the final product later (which is cleaning up real nicely) since a lot of viewers have showed interest in my own work. So there it is folks, from the graphite smudged fingers of Ryan Haigh, some good ol’ monster sketches. Enjoy.

*If anyone is curious as to how the ghosts and monster relate, the ghosts will be semi-transparent, flowing out from the monsters throat.

I have neglected to inform you guys of the illustration genius that comes out of Nick Deakin’s fingertips. Whether it’s the big heads, the artistically organized word bubbles, or the frequent chest hair and nipples cartoons he creates, I’m always intreged by his work. Trust me you will be too (as unappealing as that whole chest hair and nipples thing sounded). Give his work a look here.

There’s no doubt about it that The Ultimate Warrior may have been the greatest face painter this world has ever witnessed, but was he just a tad insane? Well, you be the judge.

No touch, phone concept

Industrial designer Branko Lukic has embarked on a mind-blowing concept for user interaction between consumer and cell phone. The Tarati features holes in the phone, in which passing a finger through will trigger a sensor to dial that number on the phone while having the numbers appear digitally on the interface. Sophisticated, sleek and with a sort of futuristic aesthetic, perhaps this is a option for cell phones to follow. Enjoy the gorgeous video created for the conceptual product as well, right here.

While surfing around on I came across a Ratatat poster created by Mike Laughead and instantly knew the guy was dope. So I began looking at his work and found he has an outstanding portfolio of work and was even a recent t-shirt winner on Threadless. You can purchase his shirt here or take a look at his portfolio site here. He also has a good collection of work on the Shannon Associates website, which is a great community for striving artists and houses incredible artistic talents.
