Feed your head

March 18, 2011

Been kicking around ideas for a fiction flyer for a few months now and have settled on what I’m calling “Baxter” from the cover of Jefferson Airplane’s “After Bathing at Baxter’s.” For an aural excursion, listen to the album on youtube. (Possibly NSFW if your co-workers are squares.) Two things really make me want to build this- the fact that it would be absolutely ridiculous to make a rubber-powered model of Baxter, and the crazy wild colors. Seriously, how fun is this?

My first step was a simple sketch I drew during an ultra exciting university student retention retreat.

Step 2 is to draw it up in Illustrator. I’m trying not to get too carried away with detail at this point while at the same time giving myself a good idea of proportion of the various bits and bobs that will hang off the fuse (?). This will also really help as being a template for printed tissue.

More to come…
