OK....backstory.....I get a message from my cross country, covet his color and vector work; always slightly <just slightly> intimidated by, one of my favourite people in the world...and he's asking for a favour. (in the 25 some odd years I've known him, John has NEVER asked me for a work favour....NEVER.).
Even better...he gave me these specs
"I would love to have a "Fighting Blue Flame" and "Fighting Orange" on skates"
Super fun, right? He wants ME to sketch up some illustrations for the San Diego Derby Dolls? Sign me up!
I whipped these sketches up in a matter of about 20 minutes or so....(I'm not going to give him a chance to come to his senses and decided to draw these himself...which he is MORE than capable of doing).
Best news ever? John's going to do the color work. BLISS! His vector work is AMAZING!
