Finally starting to see the end of the tunnel with this flu that I’ve been down with for the past two weeks. Felt much better today and had a few projects to finish up for the weekend. The illustration above was a quick turnaround assignment for the Wall Street Journal, and the full page illustration below was one for Associations Now magazine.
A couple more jobs that finished early this week, in preparation for taking a an extended break for the weekend. Taking in a Tigers game with my Dad and Son on Thursday, and then the Grand Rapids Festival of the Arts starts on Friday, where I’ll be spending a lot of time downtown watching several of my friends playing in various bands (and I’ll be playing bass with a group on Sunday afternoon).
The ‘flamingo’ illustration above was one that I did for Barrons this week, about Florida real estate, and the illustration below is another one for a new client I picked up last month, Associations Now magazine (the concept being to incorporate a list of key words throughout the illustration, all over the car labels and patches on the pit workers).
Been getting a lot of good response from the most recent postcard mailing, more so than I usually hear right out of the starting gate in previous mailings. As a result of the postcard, a new client contracted me to do a similar ‘busy city’ scene for an interior illustration for their magazine (pictured above). You can also see a more detailed version of the art by clicking on the above image.
So far, May has been a big improvement on April, with regards to workload. Keeping fairly busy and a good balance between short and long term projects. Pictured below is one of the quick turnaround assignments I had this week for one of my regulars on college health care plans.
