Monsters and Dames 2013 submission by daneault Monsters and Dames 2013 submission by daneault
This is my piece for Emerald City Comicon’s “Monsters & Dames” 2013 book. I won’t know for a while whether it gets picked or not (there’s always a ton of awesome submissions), but I just wanted to put it out there. This is my first ever submission for M&D, so fingers crossed it gets picked. :)

The idea of "Monsters & Dames" is basically what it says on the tin. Monsters and women together. So, when I was mulling over what to draw for this, I really wanted to incorporate my retro-POPaganda style and make it really tell a story. So, I figured what better way to do that than by designing a para-military organization tasked with keeping the peace in a sci-fi future fantasy world. Naturally, the Monster Squad is a small branch of that organization, but it is also, unarguably the coolest. Only the best and the brightest in the organization get picked for Monster Squad. By putting a woman on the recruitment poster, the top brass are showing that they have no prejudices about who is chosen to bond with a monster for Squad duty.

I really should write this up into a full treatment, huh?

I always see this type of art and I love it! Is there a specific name for this type of art?

It's based off of old war propaganda art. :)
