A few weekend jobs

ChronicleHE, Dover

A few jobs that I worked on over the weekend. I’m still in the middle of the Ten Commandments book project for Penguin, but should be wrapping that one up next week. The job above was one for the Chronicle of Higher Education that I finished this morning, and below is another book cover for Dover’s ‘Evergreen Classics’ series of reprints, this one being a ‘two books in one’ edition of ‘Tom Sawyer Detective’ and ‘Tom Sawyer Abroad’. I’m also continuing work on my band’s upcoming CD release, which we are hoping to get out in early summer.

I’ve still got a few more coloring book pages to share from last year’s ‘Animals’ book, plus some samples from the newer ‘Beautiful Trees’ book. I’ll also be sharing another of my ‘Who Was’ books from a couple years ago. Stay tuned.

Chronicle Assignment

ChronicleHE

An assignment for the Chronicle of Higher Education this week. I’ve been doing work for the Chronicle since around 1991. I finished up the sketches for my latest ‘who was’ book this week, and will probably be starting the finishes in about a month’s time. Meanwhile I’ve started on yet another paper doll book, and work continues on the new CD.

Living in The Donald’s World

ChronicleHE, Dover, Hudson Valley

It’s Donald’s World now, and we’re all just living in it. Can’t even look at Facebook anymore without his face leering out at me constantly. Only four more years to go. Anyhow, here’s the first assignment (with more to come), a presidential coloring book for Dover that has existing artwork and I was asked to ‘match’ as best as possible the style of the other pages.

Below are a few assignments from last week, an illustration for the Chronicle of Higher Education and another for Hudson Valley Magazine.


Oh and before I completely forget

ChronicleHE

Well, I must be getting old and forgetful, as I stumbled upon this illustration for the Chronicle of Higher Education that I did back in May, and completely forgot to post here (in a year where I’ve been doing so much book publishing work that I’m unable to post ahead of publication, and as a result, samples I share here seem to have really slowed down, so it’s a shame when I miss one, like I did here). In related news, I may be posting some samples from the new ‘Animal Coloring Book’ over the next week, should I get the time, so stay tuned.

Blinders

ChronicleHE, River Styx, Taylor Design

More work from this week. The above illustration was for the Chronicle of Higher Education which I finished up this morning. Below is an additional fiction piece for River Styx (to go with the previous two illustrations from last Friday), and below that, a sketch for an upcoming corporate holiday greeting card (for a design client that I’ve worked with in the past).
