Toronto Roller Derby


Done for Lucidia Media magazine, June Edition.
It was a really fun article to illustrate for. I got to throw in some pulpy style art and feel from the 60's.
Before working on this piece I went to check out some videos, and boy is it ever a tough sport.
I thought I post up some of the stages I did for painting it. (it's a animated APNG, not all browsers can see this. unfortunately Internet explorer, and Safari can't see this animate. Try firefox or chrome.)


I recently opened a Zazzle store and I have this image for print (as well as others, you can see previews on the side panel.
