Free­lance con­cept artist and il­lus­tra­tor Frankie is a re­cent grad­u­ate of Cal­i­for­nia’s Cogswell Polytech­ni­cal Col­lege. “My art is all about try­ing out new tech­niques and meth­ods of paint­ing to chal­lenge my­self and to keep my­self on my toes,” he says. “My day usu­ally con­sists of me sit­ting in front of my com­puter and paint­ing all day, ev­ery­day, with very lit­tle sleep. Many artists can prob­a­bly re­late.”

Frankie spends much of his free time work­ing on his own se­ries ti­tled The Crazy Ass Ad­ven­tures of Binky and Olive, fea­tur­ing a shot­gun-wield­ing lit­tle girl and her gun-sling­ing po­lar bear part­ner. “They are quite un­usual char­ac­ters,” he says.

1 Binky and Olive in Rabb it

Seaso n “This was in­spired by an episode of Looney Tunes where Daffy Duck is try­ing to con­vince Elmer Fudd that it’s rab­bit sea­son. Ex­cept in this piece the rab­bits aren’t so lucky. You’ve got to pay homage to the greats!”

2 Melvin Con­cept Ar t “This is a per­sonal char­ac­ter of mine. I was test­ing out a brush pack I had re­cently down­loaded and then, poof, Melvin was born. It’s al­ways fun play­ing with other artists’ brush packs and try­ing to fig­ure out why they have cer­tain brushes in their set.”
