FUNK TILL THE BITTER FUCKING END!!
So this is the pimped out version of the right hand side image of the Badfunk Triptych
Not really much to say here other than that it was hella fun to do some serious rendering again. I don't think I'll be painting any of the other Triptych pieces like this, cause frankly I don't have a lot of time, and other, to me more pressing, ideas in my head that need to come out.
By the way, let me know what you think of the typography. I just want to know if it's readable to you. The kind of effect I am going for is that it is easily enough readable when you're looking at it, but doesn't constantly penetrate your vision when it's only in the corners of your eyes, if that makes sense. Basically I hope it's not super distracting and attention demanding, but not hard to read either when you try.
//EDIT: by the way, beats me why I didn't mention this three years ago or whenever I posted this, but I didn't invent the type. I don't want to take credit for something I didn't do, Eduardo Recife from Misprinted Type ( [link]
) is the brilliant mind responsible for that. I hand lettered this particular one, just for the visual effect. Also, that's not supposed to be an excuse, if you think that anything about the typography doesn't work it's definitely my fault. Just wanted to give credit where it's due (even if waaaaaaayyyyyy too late, really).
Just for fun, process screen shots:
Plus, some people asked for wallpaper version of the Triptych. I never provided any of those. If there's still interest, let me know. Meanwhile, here's a wallpaper-able version of this one: [link]
Done entirely in Photoshop CS.
Pin stripes are ballin'.
