A Long awaited surprise...

Presenting Carina's birthday present. It was over a month late. But, I wanted it to look good.

-I sketched heads of 26 of the most pertinent characters
-and researched every connection between each of them
-it took forever.

So finally, I was ready to make it a poster....

-click on photos for a larger version...


and it looked like a 4th grader made it. Too many grueling hours went into each of those little lost heads to let it look as hideous as this.

So, I decided to start again.



Well, just cut out every head and put it on black.
Looked much better, with straight lines instead of wavy.



Complete with the Oceanic logo...



I hadn't added the 16 red dots around the "O" yet...



and on each line connecting the characters, there's an explanation of how they met, or how their lives are connected.

It was worth it in the end. She loved it, almost as much as I loved it... I'm making myself one.

  1. I think it's really well made. You have a lot of talent. There isn't alot of work around for your average worker, but someone with talent in the arts will always be able to find a job, if their good enough. Your on your way there. Now if someone would by my novel... :)
