Winter is a great time for staying indoors with a Cintiq tablet. That's what I'm trying to tell myself anyway:) While I try to synthesize Vitamin D from the glow of my retina screen, warm yourself by the glow of my latest JPEGS.
An illustration for a piece in the Boston Globe about a man’s relationship with his first house. He has moved years ago, but checks in on it from time to time, and watches as the neighborhood slowly changes until he can no longer recognize it.
I had a lot of fun working on this one! I feel like I've been trying to draw the interior of a car forever, and can never quite get it to feel the way I want it to. I'm always looking for photo reference where you can see the dashboard and the driver's head at the same time, and apparently it's next to impossible. This time I pretty much threw the reference out the window tried to make it up from scratch (ignoring laws of physics / perspective where necessary.) Now that I've cracked the code I'll be trying to work car interiors every preoject. Thanks to Greg Klee for the great assignment!
An illustration for CEO Magazine for a story about new laws that are stripping non-lawyer employees at law firms of the "officer" in their titles. I ended up rendering a slightly more naturalistic portrait for this one, and looking at it now am wishing I could blow up the features a little, but I guess that's just the pendulum swinging back towards cartooniness. Thanks to Hamilton Hedrick for the assignment!
These are some spots I made for the most recent issue of Money Magazine. The feature is a round up of recent "Big Ideas" that change the way people invest (or live in general.) After working on a larger illustration, it is kind of fun to jump into these quicker ones. Sometimes these spots end up being a place to try new ideas without worrying too much if they will work. The wierd diorama perspective in the "Taxi App" probably would have gotten resolved into something more realistic if I'd had a weekend to rework it, but I'm really happy with the way it came out. Thanks to Patricia Alvarez for the great assignment!
Last but not least, I'm very excited to have some work at Gallery 1988 this month. The show is a collection of reimagined record covers. The opening will be this Thursday, the 5th of December.Thanks to Dana Lechtenberg for inviting me to participate!
