Out like a line

ABA, AHMM, Delaware Today

Continuing to be super busy since mid-January with no end in sight. Mostly on Book Publishing projects that I can’t show on this blog just yet due to contractual reasons (currently embroiled in a series of three paper doll books, with a couple more projects waiting in the wings mid-April). I’ve a few smaller projects to show for March (along with another one of those ‘comic strip ads’ that I’m not going to bother to display, see previous months to get the gist of it), the one above is for Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine, below is a piece for the American Association I did a few weeks ago, and below that is an illustration for Delaware Today that I just finished up this morning. I also have some interesting developments this past month with regards to my annual ‘Krampus Holiday Card’ images that I’ve been doing for the past several years, but I will wait to give further details in a future post.

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.

Summer passing much too quickly.

ABA, US Catholic

August has been pretty busy with two concurrent book projects, and other than a few quick turnaround projects like the one above for the American Bar Association and the one below for US Catholic, there hasn’t been much else going on. I have a few other smaller projects coming next week, and will post them when I get a chance.

Monastic Life

Still working on several book projects for the foreseeable future (all of which I’m unable to share here until publication) as well as being hard at work mixing and mastering my band’s upcoming CD (hoping for a summer release). In the meantime, here’s an illustration I did for the Chronicle of Higher Education earlier this week. Also, the week before, I had a revision on the ABA ‘board game’ job that I did a few weeks back (turns out the people behind the game they were spoofing did not want to grant permission for the board layout).

Checking In…

ABA, WSJ


Haven’t posted for a while. Been busy with a few book projects that will have to remain under wraps for the time being, but I’ll share them in the future. Finished up a couple magazine/newspaper projects over the past week, the one above was finished up today, and was for Litigation Magazine for the ABA, and the one below was one I did last week for the Wall Street Journal. Both with a lot more text than I’m used to dealing with. (I still have nightmares about my old ‘typesetting days’ back in the eighties, and having jobs fall apart because of the stray typo)

Into December

ABA, WSJ

Started work this week on sketches for a new Young Readers book, and also did the above (right) illustration for the WSJ and the above (left) illustration below for the ABA. (click on each to see a larger version)
