That's awesome man. I could totally see this printed HUGE on the front entrance of some steak-house.
Although they'd probably ask you to pretty up the chef.

Melannie said...

I think my favorite part has to be the menacing look in his eyes and the burns.

Hans said...

Hey Ryan,

Wow, looks awesome! Great design and great coloring. How long does it take you to do a piece like this one? You' gonna have to show me some of those tricks!!!!:D

Take care,

Hot stuff!!!

Tom Kidd said...

Is this guy barbecuing himself? His own art is burning him up alive. I guess the spatula is so he can turn himself over and the pencil is there to sketch his charred body when he's done. That faux wood panel works great. Love the chef's hat. The short upper arm, long forearm and the big fat sausage fingered hand make it perfect.

Oh wait, he's looking a bit to hungrily at me. I know the title of this story -- To Serve Illustrator. I may read too much into things.
