8 deadly sins by dobie 8 deadly sins by dobie
the assignment in my "drawing as illustration" class was to make a book of the "8 deadly sins," meaning we had to draw something for each sin and make up one of our own. and we had to incorporate typography. so for theme i chose the founding fathers because of my life-long fascination with old-timey s's that look like f's.
and because of an interest in poking fun at american history but whatev, its mostly about the funny s's.

ANYWAY, THIS WAS A LOT OF FUN. lots of work! i wish i could think of a better way to display it than this, but it's hard to get the gist of it through only photos.

here are the fonts i used in case you want to download them, they are really great fonts and im so glad i found them[link]

So freaking gorgeous. Your use of positive and negative space is so amazing. *_* Specially at the last one. And I love how John Hancock's coat echoes his hair.

DOBIE YOU ARE INCREDIBLE every school assignment I've seen from you so far (AND YOUR REGULAR WORK TOO OF COURSE, but these have just been blowing me away) has been outstanding; you completely go all-out and don't hold anything back and it's truly admirable ;___; the faithfulness to that old-fashioned style here is excellent and each illustration itself is so charming!!

Ben's is my favorite unsurprisingly he is my ~spirit founding father~
