Bush, Bush, and Baker too!
Ok, I'm back again . . . been busy and not complaining! This Bush piece is my latest work, I've been asked to not mention who it was for, all I can say at this time is that it was done as a "shadow" cover for a weekly magazine in New York. It is possible that I will be a regular contributor to this magazine, but for now I am more or less trying out for the part. I was given the same assignment as one of their regular artists, they wanted to see how well I could do and if I could make the deadline. I am happy to say that I did in fact make the deadline, however it was rough. I was called Monday afternoon, around 4:00 p.m. and the final was due 9:30 a.m. Wednesday morning . . . youch! I hope that this story has a happy ending, I'd love to be one of their regular artists, for now here's the final image that I presented to them as well as a few close ups of the detail.
Also, I finished my work for Cracked issue #4, I'm very happy with the final results, I'll post that as soon as I can. This Saturday I will be speaking and doing a caricature study in front of a live audience at a Dick Blick's art supply store in Wheaton Illinois. It is an art appreciation day and there will be a few other artists speaking and doing demos as well. One artist in particular that I am excited to meet is illustrator Dave Dorman. You may have seen his work for DC comics, Marvel comics as well as Lucas film artwork, which includes posters for Star Wars movies. It will be a fun day! I'll post pictures next week!
