Catching Up (Illustration Sample Avalanche)

ChronicleHE, Dover, Green Prints, Penguin, River Styx, University of Virginia

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.

Catching up with recent work

AHMM, Delaware Today, University of Virginia

Taking a quick breather in the middle of a busy day (this week I’ve been feeling a lot like the guy pictured above), to post a few of the recent samples from some of my ‘shorter deadline’ clients. I’m currently in the middle of three book projects which have been taking up most of my time for the past month or so (two are nearing the finish line, probably next week, and the other will stretch into March). Picked up a new client last week, the University of Virginia Magazine, and did a set of three illustrations for a story on Medical Residency (pictured above, and the two directly below). I also had another fiction illustration for Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine earlier this week (the black and white illustration below), and an illustration for Delaware Today about the 96′ Primaries.




 

And speaking of Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine; I’ve been doing illustrations for this publication since 1989, and I am looking for back issues from the years 1989-1998 in which my artwork has appeared. If you happen to have copies in your attic gathering dust, drop me an email, and I’d be happy to make an offer on them.
