Breaking Bad

To put it plainly I love Breaking Bad. I began work on this illustration when the fourth season began and then shelved it away as I was adjusting to LA and going out on storyboarding jobs. I recently came back to it, as the fourth season was wrapping up (and pick up speed from a somewhat sluggish beginning) and managed to bang it out pretty quickly.
I really enjoyed working on this piece because I simply love these characters. Every one of them is terribly fascinating, no matter which side they are on, which I think is the sign of a truly great and engrossing TV show.
Having done a piece about Breaking Bad while I was still in school, featuring just Walter White, I wanted to expand the scope this time around and include Walt's cooking partner Jesse, as well as their boss Gus and his enforcer Mike.

I just sent this file off to GotPrint to be a new mailer. So a bunch of art directors should be receiving it next week.


UPDATE: This piece is now available as a print as well as iPhone/iPod cases and stationery cards at my Society6 store,
