Game of Thrones Look and Find

Game of Throne Look and Find

I am sure everyone is as excited as we are about season 4 of Game of Thrones. We usually have a premiere cook off, but this April is too busy for us.

We will have some multi-course party closer to the finale when thing are less insane (ha).

It occurs to me when I do these, color may make my look and find too easy to solve. Often they are in black and white to fool the eye in books and magazines and that seems to work well with the theme.

I knew starting this there was no hope of getting more than a tiny fraction of the characters or story packed into on image so I focused on my favorite characters. Obviously, it cherry-picks the books/movies  and there are spoilers, but I suspect if you have not seen the shows or read the books, the images will not mean much.

I do love some of the characters. Sam Tarly is my favorite caricature of the bunch.

The Game is On!

sHERLOCK lOOK AND FIND

Who else is excited to see the new episodes of Sherlock coming out in January? I know I am. I watched the first couple seasons several times. Sadly, in the US we have to wait for a couple weeks, but it will be on in the UK New Year’s Day.

Anyway, my last Look and Find was so well received that I decided to do another one… My friend who does hidden pictures for Highlights magazine said I should send them some designs. I have not been motivated to construct one that is kid oriented yet…

The process of this cartoon was really interesting. The set designers on this show are wallpaper crazy; it is in almost every residence. There is definitely a feel of bachelor living to the main apartment design for the main characters. 221b genuinely has a cluttered appearance.

Again, I got in most of my favorite characters. I originally intended to have more of the police officers in the composition, but scaled things back a little bit. Similarly, there are not items related to every episode in the toon, just my favorites.

As you can see from the last Pop Smoothie entry, Martin Freeman (and Benedict Cumberbatch for that matter) are very busy men. I still think MF found his roll in Love Actually to be the most enjoyable. Definitely the costume for that role was the least cumbersome…

Happy New Year’s everyone!

Orange is the New Black Zine

EPSON scanner imageI recently found out about an Orange is the New Black Zine from Julia Lavigne on Twitter. I loved the show so much that I had to do an image.

I have a friend who does a hidden image pictures for Highlights magazine. Inspired by the images she brings to our weekly Illustrators Lunches, I made this one. I got in all my favorite characters.

If you love the show, they just extended the deadline a week. http://oitnb-zine.tumblr.com/
