Every year one of my best friends throws a big BBQ we like to call the Bob-B-Q (since his name is Bob). It's become a big tradition around our social circle rivaling any of the real holidays. As part of that tradition, I always design a promotional poster and other graphics to commemorate the event. It's fun for me because Bob never asks for any particular theme or design, so I get to come up with whatever I want.
My original idea was to do a Bob-B-Q video game thing, but the more I got into it I really wanted to work a cute pin up girl into the design. Then it hit me while listening to the new cd by Ocrush, a band in which another close friend of mine plays guitar, it hit me: draw a girl in leg warmers! That's what lead to the retro 80's look of the final design, which stands in stark contrast to last year's dark horror/ zombie themed poster (see below).

Greetings, Fellow Astronauts! This week, Devin brings an awesome new toy over to the backyard, his dad's video camera! The mere sight of the camera is enough to send Ben's imagination on overload thinking about the cinematic possibilities he could create. Get ready, because it's Lights, Camera, ACTION in an All New Boxcar Astronaut!
