Space Dillo!

Space Dillo Inks Space Dillo Color

Here is the art for a piece I'm doing for Austin Books & Comics' Labor Day sale. They wanted something with an atomic age comics vibe showcasing their mascot, Austin Books Man.

I really wanted to give it that old comics feel, so, after scanning my inks into Photoshop, I kept my palette pretty limited and set my inks layer slightly transparent to simulate the cheap black ink they used back in the day. It lets the overprint of the colors show through the black. I'll post the filnal poster once it's done. Click on the images to view them larger.
