Illustration Friday: Citrus

The Citric Acid Five

Lemon Meringua
&
Lime Ricky
(and their orange bot)

Oh, they look sweet, but they are SOUR!





Dr. Le Mon Squeoux

A stuffy French guy whose super squeezer powers make all things taste of Skittles and Starbursts that nobody likes.


Lime Wedgie

Dealing out wedgies with a splash of lime.








Grapefruit Greg

With his "stache" of intimidation and his spoons of doom he squirts grapefruit juice into the eyes of the unexepecting.


More to come...

Great work! Your superheroes are some of my favorites. How large do you usually make your sketch paintings?

Don't forget about Captain Pomegranate. He thwarts villains by being to darn hard to eat.

Lime Wedgie is awesome.

I love your art it's so creative. I'm amazed at the way you stylize your characters! I was one of Hala's students and she showed us one of your originals (the frog with the polka dot pajamas) it was so sweet. We also experimented with one of the textures she said you use sometimes, with the gel medium and a roller. Anyways, now i'm just blabbering, good luck with your stuff it's awesome.

Love to see the creative juices flowing. Get it? Creative jui-- nevermind. Great stuff Guy! I'm always a fan of your super heroes. More please. Just not in the eye.

JC said...

Wow, this is so cool! Hope this wasn't just for the Illustration Friday theme because they would make really great characters for a book/comic/or whatever else. LOVE the sour couple. Excellent!
