CD cover

CD cover design for two guys who like a folk art, cool, colorful, kid friendly feel. The target was small children and their parents, of course. Done for a contest, I don't think I will win so here is the place for this small work.

A small design for a custom T-shirt that feature a cartoon of Ol' Dirty Bastard and a can of worms.
"The other way to die is eat a can of worms" it's a reference to a lyric in the song "Cracker Jack".

Illustrator mon amour!
Can help myself, so much potential in this software and still new for me. I'm working on a series of teenagers characters, from time to time I'll post some to balance the dark mood pieces.

BabaYaga aka BabaCloanta

A character design done for a contest and also for fun.
In Slavic folklore, a witch-like character who flies around on a giant mortar, kidnaps (and presumably eats) small children, and lives in a house on chicken feet (wiki). There's a Romanian version called Baba Cloanta named after her nose like a scavenger beak. Spooohhhoooooky...

Character for the CA weekly contest
Chow145: Supervillain Self-Portrait
Here's my concept:
Due to a mistreatment of a rare bacteria infection as asthma that implicated steroid abuse, NObreathing, with her lungs completely destroyed, found a way to survive. She needs huge O2 quantities that only by processing Earth's atmosphere can be supplied, and that makes her not a nice person. She is bounded to a tornado machine, with the only superpower that steroids can can give: super aggressivity!
