American Illustration 29

Two of my paintings made it into American Illustration, The White Stripes (again) and Aretha Franklin. It's a real honor for me to be featured in such a beautiful book. So many great pieces, by so many talented artists. This amazing cover was painted by Sam Weber.

3x3 Number 7 Annual Illustration

I'm honored to have two of my paintings featured in 3x3's Number 7 Illustration Annual.

I'm so glad my painting of Poe was accepted into 3x3, I want to do more work like this, and plan to soon. I absolutely LOVE painting with watercolor and acrylics.

I'm also glad they picked my White Stripes painting. This painting was done while I was goofing around one night. I just did it for fun, yet it made it into the Society of Illustrators, Communication Arts and 3x3 . . . hmmmm, go figure?

Class Warfare

This a really quick turnaround that I did yesterday for The Weekly Standard. I started the job Thursday but late Thursday night the idea was changed enough that I had to start again from scratch first thing Friday morning. The final art was due by the end of my work day on Friday.

I decided to keep things simple, tried to focus on the character and keep my color only in places I want the viewer to look first.

I really could have used more time to work on the guillotine, but for a quick editorial piece, I'm happy with the end result. It was a lot to do in one day . . .

Clown Be Gone

New painting "Clown be Gone" painted as a promotional piece for Richard Solomon Artists Representative.

I need to thank my good friend and talented artists Anthony Kosar for lending me a clown mask that he designed and made. I used his mask for reference and decided to keep my character close to his design as a nod to him and his great work. Check out Anthony's work here. Thanks Anthony, you da man!

Quick sketch of some fella for a upcoming project of sorts . . .

Sorry everyone, I had to remove my Johnny Depp painting for now. I'll re-post it when I'm able to! Thank you all for your support and encouragement, I really appreciate it!
