another red panda by beavotron another red panda by beavotron
i bought "charley harper, an illustrated life" and i think i'm in love.
his style is flawless. the flair of 50s illustration needs to make a major comeback

quicky doodle in photoshop in between bouts of working.

Great adaptation of your style! I glanced at the thumbnail and instantly saw the Harper influence even before I read your description, haha. Well done.

Oh god yes <3

I still remember having stacks and stacks of children's learning books when I was little, illustrated in a style which was incredibly reminiscent of/similar to Charley Harper's. I held onto the books long after I was too old for them, purely for the sake of the pictures.

I can definitely see that 50s influence here. Just work in some more geometry, and you've got the style down! haha

Awesome work. You could nearly do a coffee table book of your red panda illustrations.

DUDE! This is great! I have that Charley Harper book too! That man was a genius. His influence is very clear in this piece in its attention to simple shapes and silhouette but it's still clearly your own voice. Great work!

isn't he amazing!?!? thanks so much! I had a lot of fun playing in his style, I think i'll try a few more, and see how I can integrate some of his fluid, confident brush strokes into my own stuff :D

He is! I think you'd also like Eyvind Earle, if you don't already. I look forward to your next pieces! :3

Yes! I wish more of his books were more readily accessible or that his estate had a bigger web-presence. I have one of his books but that man achieved so much art in his lifetime. It's simply incredible. glad you like it! :D
