Another week means another work in progress update. Again, I will be revisiting the Musick's project since it seems to continuously grow in scale with each passing day. I promise next week will be something different though; I have a lot of different projects on hold at the moment.
Anyway, today's update is again related to the Musick's /podcast. I agreed to work with them over the coming year to produce an image for the weekly release of their podcast. Each image is intended to be a unique edition in what I can only hope would be a lovely collage of all things culturally Japanese. They aren't intended to be anything super sophisticated, but I think I will try to observe some major holidays/events, seasonal foods, and imagery that is commonly associated with this country from a domesticated perspective. So, don't expect to see any Sumo wrestlers, Geisha, or any other stereotype images over the next 52 weeks.
Above are the first 4 images I've drawn up for the most current and furture episodes(at the time of writing). I'm pretty happy that I've been entrusted with a long term project like this. Since I have full creative control of these images, I think it will ultimately help showcase my versatility and creativity in the long run. Of course, it will no doubt improve my consistency and speed as well.
What do you guys think? What kinds of projects are you working on? Have you ever been commissioned long term? What kinds of images do you associate with Japan? Do you want to know why I chose the imagery that I did? Leave your thoughts in the comments below. As always, please like and share this post~
Until next time,
