EXTRA,EXTRA....READ ALL 'BOUT IT !!!

Here's the final product .....

I started on Cristophe's project by sketching some random faces typical of that era....




This was the choosen one...

I felt like this fellow will be a better fit for the box,as it has that good ol' "mauvais garcon" feel to it....

The finished painting before an extra layer of patina for the vintage touch....


Another painting done in the same spirit .you can check for more on my art blog...


Strangely enough, Christophe Loiron of Mr Freedom fame and i ,have never met in person ......Many times over the years his name was brought to my attention by mutual friends from the mid 80's French rockabilly/vintage scene ,as we both share the same passion, background and live now in the US.That is probably why ,when we finally hooked up via email, i felt as if we've known each other for a while and it wasn't a big stretch for me when few month ago,after cruising my art block ,Christophe asked me if i wanted to create a character that'll be featured for his up and coming "apaches" collection.After few sketches we settled for the one that is now printed on the display box .I must admit i had fun working on Christophe's project and i looking forward for more opportunities,hopefully in a near future..... http:/patrick-segui.blogspot.com
