Hipster Tigers That Sled Recreationally.

So, I was recently asked by my good friend Dan of the band Sledding With Tigers to create some cover art for a cassette tape compendium. This was so incredibly hipster that I decided it was appropriate for the mascot (a tiger, obviously) to be sitting in a vintage chair, smoking a pipe - something very commonly used by hipsters who find cigarettes distasteful and mainstream. And here it is! A slightly hipster tiger showing his support for this awesome band:

And here's the original sketch: 

more sketches & paintings coming soon!
