Busiest Week in a Long While

It’s nice to be busy again. It’s been so long that I’ve almost forgotten what it feels like to work nearly a full day, all week long. Been working on the latest batch of illustrations for the fantasy inspired recipe book (above and below), plus I’ve got an assignment this week from a new client (actually an AD I’ve worked with before for another client, but who has moved on), for which I’ll be posting some examples of later in the week.

Also, this afternoon, I had some rough sketches to do for an Alfred Hitchcock story. The sketch is below, and I’ll be posting the finish next week before the holiday break. It’s a fun little story about a pair of women who build crime scene miniatures for forensic clients, who solve a mystery in the process of building their scale model.

Fantasy Recipe Book

Media Lab Books, Today Media

Started work this past week on a recipe book for a new client. The recipes are inspired by various fantasy books, so the illustrations are more along the lines of vague interpretations of various characters or scenes from works of fantasy literature. A fun project so far, and I’m expecting to do somewhere in the neighborhood of 40 illustrations for this project.
