Film Festival Poster by Doc-Hammer Film Festival Poster by Doc-Hammer
No scans or vectorizing or any crap like that. It's just Adobe Illustrator and a mouse that has crap on the bottom of it so it kinda sticks to my mouse pad. The piece is like 25"x38". They tell me that it's gonna be printed on with some printer NASA uses. I don't know what that means either. It's for a Dragoncon film festival wherein we will be showing a never before seen episode of the Venture Brothers Comedy Semi-Hour.

Okay... I made a poster... I know, it's not really painting. Cut me some slack here. Should I have said no to the request? Should have just said "No, you get somebody else to make some slapped together poster that is so un-Venture that it will drive me crazy."? Should I have done that? I couldn't. Every time some outsider designs a piece of ephemera for VB, it's so almost there. Ya know? If only they did this or that... I just wanted some piece of Venture related crap to be something that Jackson and I could hang in the Astrobase and go "Hey, that doesn't suck". And as Rusty says: "If you need something done right, I gotta do it." Plus, Jackson was busy painting a rabbit (Don't ask me... Ask him).

And, I swear on my hands that I'm gonna start painting again soon. Super-soon. Super-extra-soon! And I'll post all of my oily failures in here, and we will be one big happy family again.

I love you,
Doc

Haha its funny the 'Sorry I did a Poster I'll get back to painting' thing reminds me what I was told when I went to uni: Designers are Whores of the Art World. And I can laugh with this and agree because I am a Graphic Designer. I make art for money. And although my career is only just beginning I have already done some dreadful things I'm ashamed of haha. But whenever I can I do as much research and learning about what I'm designing so I can to fully represent whatever the hell it is I'm doing. Detail is important.

So no, you shouldn't have said no. Their is nothing worse than a hack poster that represents something you've put a lot of work into. Its a Beautiful poster (and damn fine freehand vectoring at that).

I must say you are a mad man because currently I am learning Adobe Illustrator in class right now and had to endure up to 12 hours of constant pen tool madness. Simply, I could not have imagined drawing this whole picture in Illustrator. My body woud have been found in the stream by the beginning of the next morning.

I haven't watched Venture problems yet, but my friends are supposed to be watching a marathon this friday. My friend wants to dress up as Dr.Girlfriend for holloween, and wants all of his friends (including me) to dress up with him.

Lovely picture, by the way.

Illustrator can be a bitch. But honestly, I have no problems with it. Ya see, I never really used a pencil before I was introduced to Illustrator. Yeah, I paint, but that isn't like drawing. Painting (at least with my approach) has little to do with line. It's mostly mass and color relationships. I never really draw on my canvases. So, because I never "drew" in the traditional sense, I had no real hang-ups. I took to Illustrator fast and young. I mean, seriously, I drew in Illustrator before I used a pen... So I kinda think in the application now.

So what's the moral? None! What of the point? Yes, there is a point: Keep doing it. It gets easy when you start actually thinking in the language of the mathematic curve. Soon, you will be drawing faster in Illustrator then you were with your pen.

I'm more of a mapper with pencil then a person who can paint or such. Drawing directly on the computer is the hardest thing for me. I have to have the paper infront of me and do it like that. I have a tablet PC which makes it easier, but at the computer lab we don't have that.

I guess it's all preference. I think photoshop is very easy. Others thinks its hard.

Ah, fantastic! How did I only just now discover this? Well, as its artistic qualities and Venture-ness have all already been thoroughly lauded, I will compliment the alliteration. "Festival of Films and Freakish Fundacity." That's some fine "F" repetition, there.

oh dr. girlfriend. i've known boys that wondered if they were gay for thinking she's so hot. i feel that should be some sort of victory for you guys in some way. it's an awesome poster. i can't wait for new episodes. also, it's so nice to see your artistic range, from this to realistic paintings is quite impressive.

Being aroused by a cartoon of a shapely woman is hardly "gay". Now if the only part of Dr. Girlfriend that gets their motor running is my voice, then... No, wait, that's not really "gay" either. My lovely voice is as feminine as soft, clean laundry swaying in the breeze. It is as silky as the most delicate intimate apparel, and as girly as public hair braiding.
