Last week I posted the first batch, and now here’s a few more pages. Chapter one is almost complete. Enjoy!
The Job: I was hired to produce a football-themed charicature for a 40th birthday gift. The client found a similar image on my site and contacted me. The recipient is a Nebraska Corn Husker fan and Michigan-hater. I was asked to put his children in the picture, too. I made them very small to avoid additional likeness scrutiny. This was a great opportunity to pay tribute to Jack Davis’s fantastic Georgia Bulldog drawings.
This is for a story I’m currently illustrating for Scholastic. Why are they sad? I can’t reveal… but has something to do with a chicken. I very much enjoy doing this kind of cartoony animal illustration.
I had the privilege of attending the Highlights Illustrators Party last weekend in Honesdale, PA. It was a great opportunity to meet the editors and art directors of the magazine along with many, many talented and friendly artists and their families. We were all asked to fill out a questionnaire in relation to the theme of the annual costume party. This year’s theme was superheroes. Below is my questionnaire. Stay tuned for costume pics!
