Karadzic Slow Trial

An artwork about the article of the war crimes trial of former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic. It has been constantly suspended by the International Criminal Court and has been dragging and may extend another for two years.

I did not have so much time to work on this one so i thought of someting symbolic with not too many details. The first thing that actually came to mind was a turtle that would symbolize "slow" or "dragging" for this political case. But i thought its gonna be complicated and too much work. So i made a fast line sketch of Karadzic and slapped the logo of the International Criminal Court on top, added some brushes for texture to give it more depht and noise. The colors, yellow and green is Netherland's flag.

Kodak Royalties

The article is about Kodak seeking royalties to smartphones. They claim to pioneer in digital photography and all. Apparently some have have paid a hefty amount on this case but for iPhones and Blackberry, they might have a small chance.
The detail on the old Kodak camera that i'm so proud on how it looked. The crown is also perfect on top. All done in Adobe Illustrator :)

George Michael

A quick caricature of George Michael. Quick for me is less than an hour, maybe for some it would be like 30 minutes or something. but for this kind of illustration, it would usually take me an hour if i wanted to put more details. But when i did this, it had to be in a rush because i wanted to go home and it was already late in the office. This caricature went really well for me. For something so rush this was really good. :)
Here's George in ink.
