Illustration Friday: FLAVOR

Even the tough guys can't handle the bitter brew-ha-ha.

Happy New Year, everybody.

Illustration Friday: SMALL

I did this waaay back in college, but it fit the bill for this week's topic. It was a drawing that was going to go into a children's book I had written for a senior project, but I ended up going a different route. Still did a kids' book, just a different one.

Deer Hunter

This is a cropped version of a quick spoof on one of my dad's friends. He's actually looking back because he dropped something..... but you'll never know what it was.

Bike & Hike

Here's the final promo graphic for Right to Life's Bike & Hike. I added the lil' runner to the original. Had to cover all the bases.

It'll be used for t-shirts, flyers, registration forms, etc.

Good & Bad

These were part of a project for Angie's List -- they're illustrating Good vs. Bad. One's an employee of a good, solid company, and the other's an employee of a lesser corporation... in this case, painting companies.

Here's a pig I had in the ol' sketchbook from a while back, & I just now decided to ink & color it. Better late than never, they always say.


Here's a Gorillaz-style self-portrait I did for a thread on A pretty nice break from the norm...

Bring Back the Couch!

Visit -- you'll understand.

My take on it was that "the couch" was thieved by none other than the Easter Bunny, and was currently being enjoyed by his bastard son (below).

I might have too much time on my hands... I'm looking into it.

Mystery Creature

Don't ask me (cuz I don't know) what type of lil' furry creature this fella is.... I just started doodling, and this is what came out. Kinda looks like an odd-shaped bear of some sort??

Beach Bum

Alright, I promised a drawing or two from the honeymoon, so here it is (the only one I had time for). I did this on the plane to Ft. Lauderdale, on the back of my flight itinerary. It was inspired by a large gentleman on the plane who looked pretty excited to be headed for some sunshine.

Purple M&Ms?

Here's another draw-ring that I did for the National Reading Styles Institute in New York. These black & white ones were for packets of short stories that helped children learn how to read. This one was for a story called, "The Purple M&Ms".

*NOTE: This is my last post as a single man, ladies & gents. I'm leaving town tomorrow for my wedding (7-9-05). I'm sure all the weekend's events will inspire some illustrations. Wait n' see, folks... wait n' see.

Just Jackin' With Ya

Well, while we're still in the too-busy-to-post-new-stuff phase, here's a portrait i did of Jack Lambert, an old-school Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker. A guy my dad works with commissioned me to do this for his father, an avid Steelers fan.

The Best of What's Around

I'm baaa-aaaaack...

So, with the summer concert season "crash"ing down upon us, I thought it only appropriate to include this portrait of Dave Matthews I did a while back. This was a Christmas present for my brother one year, and it was very last-minute, so I forgot to take a high-quality photo of it before I gave it to him (this picture was taken at his house with a camera-phone). The portrait was pretty good sized, though... like 18" x 24" or so.

Busy, Busy

So I haven't had a spare second to post any new drawings yet this week, because I've been super busy at work (where I usually post from). So, when this season of unrelenting busy-ness finally recedes, I'll come with a flurry of drawrings for you, my loyal fans. Yes, both of you.

Here's something to keep the ball rolling, though -- an under-a-minute sketch I did way back before Saddam went to hide in his foxhole. Man, that seems like a long time ago now...

[Insert UK expression here]!!!

I'm not gonna have time to draw today or tomorrow, so I bring you a couple spoof drawings I did a while back for this girl in my office who, when there's a lull in conversation, fills the silence with faux British accent gibberish. It's like a nervous habit -- I don't think she can handle silence.

You have to experience it to fully appreciate it. I think it's hilarious, though.

Boing Boing Boing........ Boing

This bunny looks waaaay too happy... but it's nice out -- we'll let it slide just this once.

Whooo Doggies!

This is a preliminary b/w sketch I did for a short story called, "The Day the Post Office Went to the Dogs". It was for the National Reading Styles Institute in New York.

I figured this one was only fitting for today. See ya'll on Monday.

June Already?

Here's the illustration for today. Like I mentioned at the out-set, I'm going to try to post a new illustration daily, but if the time required to do so eludes me, I'll post ones I've previously done (like the 2 you see here). Enjoy.

Let's Get It Started

Well, here we go... an illustration-a-day (when possible). I'm launching this "blog" in the hopes that it will motivate me to draw at least a little bit every day, inbetween the full-time job & hectic schedule that an upcoming wedding brings along with it. It'll also give me a chance to add to my portfolio, while staying sharp, artistically speaking.

Stay tuned -- more to come.
