Little Golden Books you will never see...





Remember those Little Golden Books when you were a wee one? I thought it'd be neat to do some quick illustrations of certain books you'd never see in the Little Golden Book series.

happy little soldiers parachuting down to a colourful happy place..

Andrew Murray said...

That's the thing though you gotta make those books look happy right?

Thomps said...

band of brothers could also be attack of the giant marshmallow doughnuts... or band of brothers.. cool stuff though man. have you been doing these in tv paint?

Andrew Murray said...

ha ha. Yeah I guess there should be some men attached to those parachutes.

Uhm, well the sketch of Rocky was done in TVpaint and the rest in PS. The Kevin smith one was done in TVpaint. but I mean for the most part it was PS.
