Highlights from Jeaux Janovsky's Inktober Artwork: From Jeaux Janovsky: "I [participated] in an artistic community event called "Inktober", wherein artists of all skill levels create hand-drawn artwork throughout the entire month of October.
For my Inktober contributions, I decided to draw little silly love letter tributes to a few of my favorite film directors, with an animated cartoon mash-up twist.
What does Quentin Tarantino look like as a Chuck Jones Loony Tunes character? What would Stanley Kubrick look like if he was a Cartoon Network character? What would Federico Fellini look like if he was a Bedrock caveman director?
I took bits and pieces of modern cartoons, classic cartoons, '90s nostalgic cartoons, etc. and applied them to well known director icons, who are characters in their own sense as well!"
