Still Sketchy

Delaware Today

Still under quarantine around here with our positive Covid results. Here’s another rough sketch for an upcoming illustration. I’ve been growing fonder and fonder of my rough sketches the past few years, and wondering if I can’t turn this into a style all its own. I like the spontaneity and the rough unpolished look of these sometimes better than the finished versions. Something to think about down the road as my faculties start to decline.

Moving into December

Delaware Today

After a couple months of nothing but black and white, I had a portrait assignment from Delaware Today that I finished up this morning. Since finishing up the latest ‘Who Was’ book over the weekend, I’ve moved on to finishes for the “Saving Earth” book for MacMillan, a project that has been lingering on the docket for quite a while. I’ll post a few samples from this book in the coming weeks.

Now in Color

Delaware Today

Yesterday’s scratchboard illustration, which I added the color to this afternoon. This was for Delaware Today for an article on a charity golf tournament in Beau Biden’s name.

Back in the Saddle

Delaware Today

After a rather lengthy waiting period, I’m back to being busy again. Currently working on the finishes for two “Who Was” titles (expect to be finished sometime mid-November), and waiting for the other shoe to drop on two other book projects that I’ve been expecting word on any day now. Meanwhile, I have a magazine assignment for Delaware Today that I’m trying to squeeze in between the cracks. Did the black and white portion of it this afternoon, and will likely be posting the color version when I get it completed tomorrow.
