Here's two of 8 illustrations I'm doing right now for Boys Life magazine for a 2 spread article on sports superstitions. One's about Jim Palmer for the Orioles who wore the same pair of lucky socks for an entire season. Got the Ok to post this because the copy changed for this one and I had to change it a bit so the final will be slightly different. The second is a work in progress of Babe Ruth of the Yankees and Turk Wendell of the Mets. This is a super fun project and I thankful to have the opportunity to work with such a great publication. I am excited to see how these will turn out when the magazine comes out in December. Stay tuned!!!
I recently created an illustration for a fundraising event for Veteran Homestead, an organization that helps our military veterans. The image was used in invitations, email blasts and posters to get corporations to participate in a go-kart race to raise money for Veteran Homestead held at F1 Boston. Maria Jannace, art director for the event, informed me that the fundraiser was a huge success and that my artwork helped make it the best one in the history of the organization. It really touched me to know that my work will help to make a difference in other peoples lives. Win win!
Working on a new project now for MindtwisterUSA for a new game box cover. We are going to incorporate the characters form the Skateboard Madness board game to the internationally acclaimed and awarded game Pentago to appeal to a younger audience as well. Stay tuned to see what I come up with.
I just completed illustrations for a kids book called "Princess Island". This is the pic of me that will be used on my bio page. It's what I do to decompress between illustration projects. I thought that it was pretty awesome that the publisher chose this shot instead of the typical headshot. I'm stoked!
I did do the art that is on the board in the pic a few years back. Nothing like riding something with your own art on it...right? :-)
Happy Day after tax day! :-)
