Brian Allen: Cheech & Chong Zombies Tribute

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: Boy Scouts of America

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.”
