It’s the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing this week.
This week’s cover features the art deco foyer of the Piccadilly Cinema in Perth.
It’s a lot of fun to put quokkas into movie posters…
I think Ringo looks good as a quokka- I only had to make the nose a little bigger. Here’s the original.
Since I started posting the quokka covers to this blog, I’ve done three that are references to famous images… I hope I’m not getting lazy 🙂
There’s two covers for the Quokka this week- one for a special ‘End of Financial Year’ wraparound, and one normal cover.
The one below is the first time I can remember using panels in my Quokka covers… the brief asked for lots of quokkas buying lots of stuff, including fridges, heaters, cars, houses, tools and couches. This was the easiest way I could think of to show all the required items at once.
This next one was fun- I got halfway through colouring it and started worrying that people might think that the quokkas were members of a strange cult. I meant them to be druids. The older one, stirring the potion in the cauldron, is a nod to the druid from my favourite comic series.
A bit left field, but good fun to draw.
