More Brixton Brother Art

This one was tricky. The original sketch for it looked terrible, 'cause I hadn't any photo reference for it. If I can find it I'll post it later. The photo reference is fun in and of itself–me in a fluffy bathrobe lying prone of a chaise in the backyard.



Anyway, the question of why Steve Brixton is in a bathrobe atop a moving train is best answered by reading the book, WHICH IS AVAILABLE NOW.

UPDATE: Due to popular demand (2 comments), here's my first attempt at a sketch, with no reference at all. I think this got approved, but I'd always promised to fix the dodgy drawing after shooting some photo reference.



Lacking a train and a 12-year-old boy, I put on my wife's robe (it actually has "Dr. Rex" stitched on the front–very hot) and lounged on a chaise.

I really want to see that photo reference. Great b&w style, Adam.

I'm thinking that illustrators have more fun.

That's so much fun! Thanks to the masses for demanding the additional content! I love seeing the behind the scenes ridiculousness.

I often lurk on your blog but had to comment on this one. Love the sketch and the bathrobe pose.... glad to know i'm not the only one who gets in crazy positions to get the right perspective.
