The Illuminati Stole My Scooter

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This is one of my latest projects for the Scooterola brand. If you can't see the video here, you can get it on http://scooterola.com/index.php/2019/02/24/the-illuminati-stole-my-scooter/

It's hand drawn, vectorised and worked up in AD.

I made a little 4 minute film of the process below:1736435688_SCT190222IlluminatiTshirtCMYKtransparentRED.thumb.png.7ef9c571e85f736f01117d464200845f.png

I love scooters. Have owned a few in my life. My favorite was my Lambretta Li150, which I tooled around on during the late 60's. I did an illustration of it a few years ago, using the old Serif DrawPlus.

Excellent, Alun. I never heard about Serif before Affinity burst onto the scene. If I had, I may have started all this stuff earlier! I also had a Lambretta at one time -around 1980. I completely resprayed it in my garage and painted a version of a cover image from one of the Thomas Covenant trilogy books on the side panels. I think it may have been 'Lord Foul's Bane'. I can't remember which now. I used an airbrush and a compressor that I still have...
I prefer my scooters in their original livery now.

Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever. Yes, I read those myself. Really excellent books. I was also a big fan of Michael Morcock.

I haven't read Moorcock. He's added to the list of holiday reading.

Very good. I missed the part showing the step between drawing and digital image.

The original fitted into my A4 scanner, so I scanned it at 150dpi and vectorized it using a Mac app called Image Vectorizer. That bit was simple.
