Shaman of the Rainbow Vomiting Pandas – © Derek Chatwood
Rainbow vomiting pandas? The sky taken over by flying sharks? This is the colorful and trippy world of Derek Chatwood. He has a talent for making bold illustrations that hold both humor and often an undercurrent of poniency that only adds to the full stories they tell. He produces his works with pencil and ink, drawing the outline freehand, then ‘paints’ the images using Photoshop. When he’s not at his day job as a video game designer and illustrator he says “whatever collects in the mental filter over the week of media saturation, I spend my weekend trying to squeeze back out onto paper.” It would seem his weeks are saturated with pure Technicolor brilliance.
