Rough Sketch

Hudson Valley, rough sketches

PunkBandwebA rough sketch for an upcoming illustration for Hudson Valley. Had a busy weekend with my own band, with shows on Thursday and then up in Traverse City on Saturday, so still a little high on performing anyways, which made this one fall right into my sweet spot to start out the week.

 

Post Weekend Roundup

Dover, Hudson Valley, Taylor Design, Today Media

DazzlerCoverwbFinishing up a busy week & weekend, with the ‘Vietnam book’ getting completed on Friday, and two Dover covers for their ‘Evergreen Classics’ series on Saturday, Sunday and Today. Also had a double music gig on Saturday night up in Rockford for the Harvest festival, and have been working on a third round of sketches for the ‘holiday greeting card’ project, as well as fixing some ill advised color choices for a project that I completed last week for Today Media. Expecting to hear some news on a big upcoming project any day now, and have cleared most of the workload in anticipation.

Above is how the illustration for Hudson Valley turned out, which I finished up this afternoon. I’ve also been working full tilt on the Vietnam book, trying to get it done early, in anticipation of our trip to Ireland in about a week’s time. Below is a sneak peek at one of the Vietnam illustrations (this has definitely been the “Year of Nixon”, with no less than 3 separate books so far this year with multiple Nixon illustrations).

Which also reminds me, it has been a while since I’ve shared work from these Penguin ‘who was’ books, so I may put together a post along those lines either next week, or when I return from our trip.

VietnamteaserBelow that, I have five more rough sketches for the Xmas card project that I talked about in the last post. After the client looked over the first batch, they had some suggestions and modifications to the prior group of sketches.

And some more sketches, for a quick turnaround piece for the Chronicle on the suppression of a diversity of viewpoints on campus.
