Brian Allen created this silk-screen t-shirt illustration in tribute to the legendary Cheech & Chong characters from the movie, Up In Smoke.
Brian explains his process:
“I drew this artwork in Clip Studio Paint (Manga Studio 5) with a Wacom Cintiq. This is inspired by an illustration I created years ago – I wanted to test out my new skills, and design something that was more fitting for a t-shirt and filled out the front more (the previous design was too square). I also wasn’t happy with the likeness of the characters in the first design, so I drew everything from the ground up, and added a lot of elements from the films and really tried to do my best to capture the spirit of these legends.”
Brian Allen was commissioned by the Boy Scouts of America to create these illustrations.
Brian elaborates about the project:
“I was thrilled recently to work with Boy Scouts of America illustrating their Bear, Wolf, and Tiger mascots for a catalog that went out to all troops nationwide.
We created illustrations that blended real studio photos of kids in Boy Scouts gear and drawn into a comic book background. The marketing team hired me to reinvent the existing mascot illustrations in my own style. I was a Cub Scout long ago, so it was a lot of fun to leave a little mark on the organization.”
