Hot Spot Colored



Here is the final for the City Page illustration, colored in Prismacolor marker. I am fairly happy with how it turned out but would have liked to push the sheet smoke in to a fuller range of greys. Time dictates that I move on right now though, I am beginning an illustrated type project that I am very excited about.

Fritterman



This illustration is for the editorial "The Binge From Hell and Back," a delightful tale from Oprah about a person who buys a ton of apple fritters and binges. My concept was to make the person look like an apple fritter and it looks like I succeeded in creating a character that looks a little like the bee girl from that Blind Melon music video. I don't have a full grasp on acrylic yet, and I am not sure that I prefer it much over gouache as I can not mix colors spontaneously or create lines as easily.

Storms of Acquittal



Illustration of the metaphor "Storms of Controversy."
The concept is that the murderer was just acquitted and the widows of the husbands he killed for a storm cloud.
