Today, I'm sharing with you all one of my newer pieces of fan art. Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bogus Journey are two of my all time favourite movies from childhood. I grew up with three brothers who were all born in the early to mid 70s, and had our shared bedroom (yeap, four kids, one bedroom) covered in heavy metal posters. So this movie meant an awful lot to us growing up.
So when I wanted to add something new to my fan art illustrations, these guys seemed like an obvious choice. And who can argue with their most famous quote, "Be excellent to each other".
This pose was a little tricky (I had to try to redesign it slightly to fit on the card as in reference photos their arms are very widely open), and I'm still getting used to drawing men. To show the full pose, and both figures, there is less focus on the faces as in some of my other illustrations, so it was difficult to convey their faces with less detail than I'm used to, but I think I've captured them well.
Bill & Ted adds to the line of fan art greeting cards I've been creating over the past while. You can also find Willow Rosenberg from Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly, Captain Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation, Leslie Knope of Parks & Recreation, and Usagi Tsukino from Sailor Moon. I also have a greeting card of Jillian Holtzmann, from the Ghostbusters reboot, coming soon.
If you would like this card, or any of my other greeting cards, you can pick and choose your own selection. From any of my greeting card listings, just choose how many cards you would like, and when you purchase, add the names of which ones you would like. (If you want to order more than four cards, just add two sets to you order).
