COAT OF SMILES, parody art of iconic symbols. A duck's hat, a mouse's ears and a smiling yellow button. Three iconic things brought together in one artwork.

Okay, this red skipper is off-model, a little.

By the by, in my opinion those kind of large-scale characters work beautifully as cover sujets. Like with this test thingy here:

  1. Fantastic work!!
    I would give my left nut to be able to draw like that... ;)

  2. Man I really love your work.
    Do you basically draw on paper then scan into the computor to ink and paint?

  3. Amazing!! love everything on your blog:)

  4. Cearphilly, me too. Gossamer is one of my all-time favorite characters.

    Malgorzata, cheers!

    Lucaimura, hahaha, please, not! It's just a little practice and good teachers... :)

    Tony, many thanks. Lately, I draw mostly on the computer with a tablet. Well, I still love using pencils and paper, of course. But for work it's much more faster to draw directly in Photoshop.

    Shahab, uuuh, thanks for the kind feedback!!

  5. So great, this character always used to crack me up and he's back for a laugh!

  6. Doing some research on Willie Real and stumbled across your blog - beautiful!
