It seems fitting that the launch of my first comic/graphic novel was in one of the places responsible for inspiring the story— Fouke, Arkansas. Had a good time at the Fouke Monster Festival, hung out with some nice folks; even saw Bigfoot! 😉
I missed his birthday by a few days but here's a pencil drawing I did earlier this year of one of my little sister's favorite performers. 💜One of my favorites too.
Haven’t posted a portrait in a while. Really enjoyed his performance as former Texas Ranger, Frank Hammer in Highwaymen.
A little hand-painted branding for my table at the Fouke Monster Festival. Sure, I could have had it printed but I am SOOOOO cheap, I decided to do it old school. 💸💰✍🖌🎨😜
Another silly Sasquatch sticker drawing...this one is apparently "walking like an Egyptian" 🤔😜
A bigfoot design I did, originally for stickers that I would print myself. What do you think about putting it on T-shirts? 🐵🤔❔ I'll also make it available on RedBubble.com for printing on anything you like. Just search Rick Chandler or studiochandler
I did this as a promotional T-shirt design for me to wear during events. It is, of course, a nod to the famous Norman Rockwell triple self portrait, in this case remixed to include a fourth, tiny little phone, selfie. I wanted to do something that illustrated my use of both traditional and digital media. Thoughts?
RIP Tim Conway. 😔 (I posted a different version of this before. I finally figured out how to better format it for Instagram.)
Things you don't think too much about when putting a graphic novel together...the inside front and back covers. 😐🤨 Honestly didn't even know what to put on this one--the inside BACK cover--so just continued the design theme from the inside FRONT cover and used it as a next issue promo/about the author kind of thing. Oh well. Maybe it's not too goofy. 😌
A little Sasquatch poster idea I'm working on. Actually enjoyed working on the background in this one, which is a little unusual for me. 😏🌳
Artwork for poster/t-shirt design featuring some "cryptids" that have supsupposedly been sighted in Arkansas. 😱😏🤔🦇👹👽
Here's the wrap-around cover for the graphic novel, "Arkansas, The Supernatural State" in all it's glory. ☺ Swipe for the back and full wrap-around.
This is the inside front cover of book one of my graphic novel, "Arkansas, The Supernatural State". I've been really busy trying to finish up in time to get things printed for the Fouke Monster Festival in June. More detail to come. ☺
I'm thinking about using this at the Fouke Monster Festival, maybe as a t-shirt design? Any feedback on this would be appreciated. Thanks!
This couldn't wait until Friday. 😉 In honor of the Fouke Monster Festival in Fouke, Arkansas, June 15, 2019. 🐵😜😁🐵 Get this on a t-shirt👕 or a variety of other goods over at Redbubble.com. Link from my website (link in the bio) or just search Redbubble for "studiochandler".
