Here's a little sketch inspired by some terrific little sketches Tom Kidd has been doing of these "Helioderms" that you can check out his own blog called Kiddography . I just love the simple idea of these massive creatures floating like feathers in the clouds. If you aren't familiar with Tom's work, you should really check it out. I am often drawn to artists that are doing more than just executing good technique, but trying to communicate a world derived from within themselves. Tom Kidd has this ability to do that, and so does one of his influences, Winsor McCay. McCay has been an influence of mine as well, so it is interesting to see how another artist channels that into his own work.
This is just a simple little doodle of these giant turtles with spiderlegs (we'll call them SpiderTurtles) going to catch an early showing of 'Cats' on Broadway. Or about to destroy the city....who knows.
