Alphabet Car(d)s - my CTN project


Here's a sneak peek at what I'm working on for this year's CTN. I'm doing a set of animal/alphabet/automobile flash cards. Originally the idea started as doing a children's book and the idea evolved into flash cards. Everything is very much still in progress, but I want to share what I've been working hard on. I have exactly 2 weeks left until I need to deliver the final files so wish me luck.

Speaking of two weeks, only 2 weeks left in the original art raffle. Follow my blog or leave a comment to be entered.

Jeremy Kool said...

Retro and futuristic all at once. Absolutely lovely! Would buy this in a second for my son (but mostly for me) ;)

John Deininger said...

Sweet Lion and Futurecraft! So much originality - love the unique forms and balances of shapes, and it's fun to look at! Maybe a future version for a book could be a 'Lifter' vehicle, that lifts 'Luggage' into the 'Lunarpod'? Or not :P

Love your blog - thank you so much for sharing your mind-blowing work and many of your processes. It is infinitely inspirational.

Dilraj said...

This looks lovely. Has an almost 70's illustration feel to the characters but with future vehicles. Lovely.

I like how you make all the features on the cars cool and they seem very fun to draw. Then you up the ante by incorporating an animal driving! My niece and I are relearning the alphabet;)
