I did a drawing for this fun illustration project called Ten Paces and Draw after I saw them featured on Illustrationmundo. Every week, they have a different theme and you submit a sketch. They all get put into an Illustration Hat, jumbled around a bit, and then fed out to all the illustrators who submitted to take to finish. You only get 48 hours or so between when you get your sketch and when the final is due, so it keeps things nice and light.
This week’s theme was “world culture” and through pure coincidence, I got my buddy Derrick’s sketch of a tanuki laden tree, which I promptly made weird and creepy. I submitted a sketch for a portrait of Ann Druyan recording her brain waves for the Voyager Golden Record project (admittedly, I had the thumbnail for this sitting around gathering dust; a rejection from another project) and you can see the results here.
