Freeze Frame! (NSFW)

Some of the final images for that book, Stripmalling. The end is a series of 'where are they now' type freeze frames, as one might see in a hilarious teen comedy.







The first features the protagonist, now an assistant professor, but still dealing drugs to students. The second is his ex-girlfriend, now a rocket scientist.

The third is their child, who is growing up vegan. The fourth is a character in the book, 'Evan Munday' (no relation), who is now a male escort in Montreal who is working on his own underwear fashion line.

The final one is the boss at the Shill Station. Who still owns a Shill Station and is pretty happy about it.

Haha.. these are awesome Evan! Are you sure the racy Evan Munday pic seen above is of no relation to another Evan Munday? Is this what you do on your days off? Oh dear.

I think the facial expressions on the lot are fantastic!

Hahahaha, I can't believe you put yourself in that (doggy-style) position.
The second and fifth drawing could use cast shadows from the figures. The lines on the trees in the fifth drawing could be resolved differently. Maybe use the same fine lines as the rest of the background, because the contours are a bit unflattering and unnecessarily bold.

Hot shit.
Drawing while being "F-ed up the A" looks hardcore, but it also the same feeling we all share as artists sometimes (not literally of course). Am I wrong?

Evan said...

I agree about the trees and shadows, Loo-Bot. I'll see if I can change those trees.

Follow-up: the author wants to crop that notorious drawing. He's shown it to people and they found it more revolting than hilarious. Too hot for fiction!

Ooh.. censorship in full effect! What drama!
