Process gif of a recent 442 Magazine illustration
Sketch for 442 Hungary. An article about a coach in the '80's who lost it in a casino.
This is the cover to Encountering Chupacabra. Great print job, with high quality hard cover. Very happy with how it came out!
Here are a few of the 10 illustrations I just completed for a really fun commission for 442 Magazine. The feature is about conspiracy theories that surround football, World Cup, etc. This was a stellar assignment with great art direction by Tom Chase!
And some sketches too!
And this one was cut for the lead...I like the image, but it didn't lead in as well as the one Tom chose.
Here are a few process shots from spread 11 of Encountering Chupacabra, a graphic novel reader that I illustrated this year.
And another spread:
Almost done with my latest project for Capstone Publishing, titled Supernatural Encounters, Chupacabra and other Cryptids. I wrote in a column on my "work to do" list called "Redraw Things that Suck". I've got five days before the deadline, so I can afford to go back and improve some of the drawing that is going to bother me in six months. Also, coffee spill.
Here are a few more illos for Fourfourtwo Magazine. Tom has been a great Art Director, and very open to my interpretations of the text.
In November, 442 Art Director Tom Chase hired me to illustrate a satirical story about the type of restaurants football (soccer!) players would open. David and Victoria Beckham's sparse plated bistro was especially fun. January issue...will post some pics here after the magazine comes out.
Here are the illustrations from that job:
I have been wanting to do some digital painting for a while, but have been busy! So, I had a few hours this afternoon and did a still life. I was making bacon for Emma and put it on the little ramikin of poured out grease. The colors were cool to me and matched with the Macy's coupon sitting a few feet away. Salt, bacon, bacon grease, and consumerism. An unintentional painting about sin, I guess!
I recently started working on a graphic novel for Capstone Publishing Called Chupacabra and Other Cryptid Encounters. Fun project! Started with the Mothman spreads and the cover this week and happy with the progress. Can't wait to post some stuff!
I finished it this morning and moved it into my "FINISHED WORK" folder! Was going to call him Bumbee, but a Google search revealed an app by same name. Maybe Bumber.
