Some monster doodles . . .

I just got back from a little trip away with my family, had a great time relaxing. With a three year old and a four month old, I didn't have much time for drawing and sketching, but I did squeeze in a bit. These sketches of classic horror monsters were done fairly quick using a ball point pen and some acrylic paint on toned paper.

Below the monster sketches is a 11X14 oil painting that I did for Reform Judaism about two months ago. The story is about a Muslim women who hated Jews, and then had a complete turn around, she was no longer welcome back in her own country. It was crazy, because I only had four days to paint 30 people . . . it would have been much easier to do this digitally, however I felt that a traditional as well as a not so exaggerated look would fit better with the story. This was painted with a limited palette, Ivory Black, Cadmium Red, Yellow Ochre and White.

Therapy Sketch!

After killing myself with hours of rendering, I finally finished my job for MAD, look for it in issue #480, "If Comedians told the same joke"

On another note, I needed to do some quick sketching . . . therapy from the labor of painting my MAD illustration, so I sketched this Angelina. There is a possibility that I will be painting her and a few other celebs for another job soon, so I gave myself a little head start. Also in the mix is a page and a half illustration of Tiger Woods for GOLF magazine, as always I'll post what I can when I can! Thanks for stopping by!

I'm finally an idiot!

Some cool news to share! I haven't been able to post for a few days because I've been busy working on a job for a client who I have dreamed about working with for years . . . well since I was eleven to be accurate. So . . . I am happy to announce that I am working on my first humorous painting for MAD magazine, a two page spread! I believe it will be published in issue #480, so keep your eye out for it, I'll post it here as soon as I have permission to do so.
