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!!!
Here's a golden oldie from many MANY moons ago. Something I did as a scratch board illustration for U.S. News and World Report for an article on the bouncing bull market. I used to to a lot of my illustration work before I went digital as scratch board art. Working in this medium is opposite than working in than pen and ink in that you are scratching away darks and creating lighted areas as opposed to creating darks with a pen. I can still emulate the style digitally but there is something about the process of scratching away at the board as opposed to drawing on a Wacom tablet that feels so natural. But at the same time, I sure don't miss all the clay dust that would accumulate in my studio or my lungs for that matter, during the process.
This is an illustration pulled from the archives of Fian Arroyo Illustration I did years ago for a business magazine for Thomson Financial depicting teamwork. I believe it was an article on companies building teamwork skills kind of like the thing my buddy Tom's site does.
I wanted to show how teamwork in a corporate environment could keep the company moving forward in a collective effort towards a common goal.
