le fermier est sur son tracteur



This is a tweeked version of a quick piece of work I did for my day job. The client decided they wanted a different stylistic approach so back to the drawing board on that one. Things came together quickly and I had fun doing the piece (such opportunities aren't always forthcoming in my present day job...) although I was holding back on the Frenchman a little bit (see thumbnail sketch). I thought it a shame to waste the work so here it is.

PS. Isn't Babelfish a wonderful tool for all those of us who were lost in GCSE French! While we are on the subject it's also a fitting tribute to Douglas Adams... sadly missed!

Your style reminds me a little of Mary Blair's work where design, shapes and color tell the story. The retro feel of your work appreciates the past yet is also contemporary and fresh. I like it. Love your sketch of the Frenchman. Lots of personality... plus attitude.
