I found out Tuesday night that my piece "The Calling" was selected to be included in the fantasy art book "Infected By Art" volume 5. I'm honored to be included among such great artists in this prestigious book once again. Last year I had another piece selected in volume 4, which was the first time I had ever submitted anything. I feel sooooo blessed.
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? :-)
Starting the week off with a another Sunday night doodle while watching TV with the fam. Dragons...who doesn't love 'em? They are so fun to draw. I have a seemingly endless number of them in my head wanting to get out. Should I see a health care specialist for this? ;-)
This is how I treat myself while working on my illustration deadlines at Fian.com. A quick fun monster character design doodle in my sketchbook...then back to work. It always keeps my creative juices flowing. I use Faber Castell India Ink markers and a Moleskin sketchbook...keepin' it simple...keepin' it real. Maybe I'll get the opportunity to create this in full color for an illustration assignment. That would be sweet!
Got the OK from the client to show this fun mappish illustration I did for AAA Carolinas for an article called "Cruising Down Music Highway". The top part shows the illustration in its entirety and the bottom part shows blown up sections. Being a guitar player myself it was fun creating this illustration.
