Fantastic Plastic – Part 3

Friday, January 13, 2006

Today I’ve spent a lot of time coughing up my lungs from a chest infection, (er, nice!) however between the hacks I’ve managed to knock out another Action Man illustration. This is my original who’s head is now super-glued on!

1978 Eagle Eyes Part 2 – Commando

Looking at this one and then the first illustration of an Actionman, I think that I’m starting to find the style I need for this set. The first Eagle Eye’s may have been a little over worked and I’m trying to convey the idealistic, mass produced quality of these toys.

Here’s a second illustration for my “Fantastic Plastic” set off illustrations. My thanks to Bubbles for sending a photo of this Sindy doll complete with handmade knitted jumper – very nice!!

Fantastic Plastic – Part 1

I loved my Eagle Eyes Action man which was given to me as a kid for birthday. I was totally gutted a few years ago when hes head fell off during a house move but this Christmas I’ve been chuffed to bit’s in receiving a vintage, 1978 Eagle Eyes from a good friend!

This has prompted me into starting a new set of illustrations which for the time being I’m going to be putting under the set title of “Fantastic Plastic”. I’ve started with this Eagle Eyes work in progress shown below…

If anyone has photo’s of their old Barbie, Sindy, Ken or any action figure preferably from the 1970’s and would like to add them to the “Fantastic Plastic” illustration set then please drop me an email 🙂

Lonely Breakfast

Really looking at light and reflection, also this image has a certain quality about it with the colour reflecting from the bowl and table. This illustration took a good couple of sessions before this end result. I may revisit this in the future as I have plans for a set of prints. Illustrated in Flash.

This was drawn from a photo taken on holiday in Southern Italy. Spent about 3 days on it and really enjoyed in the process. Getting the light right on this baby meant loads! Illustrated in Flash.
