I was doing some spring cleaning in my office this weekend, and came across some hilariously awkward freelance designs that I had completely forgotten about. Probably for good reason.
Back in early 2005, I was approached by Wizards of the Coast to help develop a property called "The Irreverants". Having seen my website, they said they loved my style and I was perfect for their project. Excited by opportunity to get paid to do my thing, I immediately agreed and signed all the necessary contracts. With the ink still drying, they said "Fantastc!! Ok, here's what we had in mind......have you seen Teen Titans?"
DOH!!! So realizing that I was stuck, I decided I had to man up and give a try....even though that style was totally outside my comfort zone. The horrible results are below. My sincerest apologies to any of you Teen Titan's guys that see these. My intent was not to mock you.
Couldn't figure out what to do with this one. I like her crazy cat heels.
Added bonus.....more weird sketches.
So after failing miserably, I decided it was time to admit defeat and bring the project to a real pro, my badass designer buddy Robin Mitchell. I said "Please Mr.Mitchell...take this piece of stinky poo, sprinkle your great magic on it, and make it something glorious".
He patted me on the head, and said "It's ok, pitful mortal......where you have failed, I will rise like the mighty phoenix." And so, the rest is written in the analoges of his blog by blind canadian monks......here......here.......some here......and I think some may have fallen over here as well.
