J Culture Con Poster by AaronSmurfMurphy J Culture Con Poster by AaronSmurfMurphy
So Wil, manager of Tokyo Otaku, offers me the chance to design the poster for this years J-Culture Con([link]) which is the follow up festival to last years Chibi Con. Taking him up on the offer in exchange for a bit of cash (which mostly went on new pens and printers bills) and a free table ended up with this:

Godzilla smashing up the venue and Derby landmark - the Assembly Rooms. The aim is to pull in Japanese film fans with 'Zilla and strike interest in the residents of Derbyshire by using a recognisable building.

This basically involved lots of photo referencing and learning how to draw the anatomy of Godzilla (who apparentally comes in 3 broad variants with sub categorisations within each of them). Not only that but Godzilla is supposedly based on 3 different reptiles taped together according to wikipedia.

Done on A3 with pigment inks, promarkers and the wonders of Art Rage 2.

I certainly remember panicking and hastily trying to rewrite on wet paint. Sorry about that but cheers and lovely for digging the last poster.

(Also, my apologies for such a late reply).

Heh, that's pretty cool. It was my 23rd birthday a couple of months ago and I got all sorts of 23 related gags from close friends and the like.

Actually, the convention I did this poster for is happening again in late September and is always looking for guests. Would you and Steve be up for it?
