Wrapping up September

ABA, Dover, River Styx

A few of the assignments I did this week, including an assignment for River Styx (above), and another courtroom scene for the ABA (below), and a couple more covers for the Dover Evergreen Classics series of reprints (Tom Sawyer and Rose in Bloom, pictured at the bottom). I’ll likely be starting back to work on book project finishes next week.

Here’s a piece I did for River Styx this afternoon for a bit of fiction in the next issue. More illustration samples to come later in the week.

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).

River Styx

A couple magazine illustrations for some short prose in River Styx Magazine that I got done this week. Still working on the coloring book project and should be finishing that up next week, and it looks like I’ll be jumping right onto another book project right on the heels of this one.

I haven’t updated this blog in quite some time, but this has been one of the busiest years I’ve had in a long time, and, since so much of it is book publishing projects, I haven’t had much to show as a result. I’m going to post a lot of random samples today, both from quick turnaround projects that I’ve done over the past month or so, plus some teaser images from some of the various books I’ve been working on this year. Above is one from an upcoming scratchboard color book project that I did a few months ago (one of about 50 illustrations I did for this project). Below is a quick turnaround map illustration I did for Barrons a few weeks back.

The next three images were for an upcoming issue of River Styx.




I also recently completed a series of three paper doll books, which should be hitting the market any day now. Above are a sampling of costumes for these three books (16 illustrations per book). Below are a few illustrations I recently did for Green Prints (along with the usual tiny spot illustrations and drop cap letter illustrations, which I haven’t bothered to include here).



The baseball illustration above was for the University of Virgina, and below are a few sample illustrations from two ‘Who Was’ books that I completed over the past several months (each book was approximately 80 illustrations).



The illustration of the students climbing a wall was for the Chronicle of Higher Education several weeks ago. Below is a sample from one of two coloring books I am currently finishing up (30 illustrations each, plus some additional color pieces), and below that, a sample illustration for an upcoming book project that I did yesterday afternoon.


Whew! That’s enough of an update for now. I’ll post some more when I get a chance to resurface again.
