This was a really fun commission that was also a gift. The client was gifting this to his wife, whose father had died while she was young. In response she had gathered father figures from the media and the idea was to showcase her as a young girl being protected by all of her pop culture dads. I thought the idea was so incredibly sweet and touching and the chance to get to draw all these incredible figures had me very excited. Hopefully the likenesses came out well enough but in case you need help, these bad ass dads include the members of KISS, Tom Selleck in Magnum PI drag, Sting (in his Dune duds), David Bowie in some sorta Ziggy Stardust outfit of my own creation and the one and only Harrison Ford, aka Han Solo. There are saucer's in the background to suggest impending danger and all the men are striking protective action poses. I had so much fun with this piece :).
