Cryptid Miscellanea

Posted in andytoad, costume, drawing, mask, NYC by andytoad on August 22, 2013

Earlier this summer I was asked by illustrator Bil Donavan to take part in a mythology themed drawing night at the Society of Illustrators.  It sounded like fun so I gathered together some of the creature costumes that I’ve created over the past few years and took them to over to the Society. Working together with three models I created a motley crew of fantastic beings that were then drawn by the illustrators in attendance.  Such fun! It was such a great experience to see my designs come to life and be rendered in pen, ink, watercolor…  – with such amazing illustrative talent!  Below are a few images that were graciously shared with me by the artists.

A mask I designed for my friend Mike to wear to a fundraising event this weekend; The theme – It Came From the Lagoon.

I think he’s going to be the belle of the ball…

A sketch for the rest of the costume below.
