Another comic from an ongoing side project. You can click on the small image above to see a larger version. Been busy with several large projects that I will probably not be able to share here for some time to come yet but I should have a few quick turnaround pieces to post later in the week. Hope everyone is having a safe and enjoyable Memorial weekend.
Another from a comics project I’m working on with a partner. You can click on the image to see a larger more readable version. Besides these, I’ve also just begun another large comic book project for an educational publisher having to do with a baseball icon (more details on this next month sometime).
The illustration above was one that I did for Barrons this week on executive compensation, and the illustration below was a rush job for Chronicle this week on tough teaching topics.
I also had an illustration assignment for a local wooden toy block manufacturer, this would be for a set of Korean letter blocks and this image would be a sort of puzzle on the backside of the blocks.
Then, earlier in the week, I had an illustration assignment for US Catholic magazine (pictured below)
I’ve long toyed with the idea of trying out the ‘comics’ medium, since way back before I started freelancing, but I’ve never quite known how to get started. Over the past few weeks I’ve been collaborating on a side project with a friend of mine, and this ‘sneak peek’ is one of several single page stories that we’re working on. We’re not sure where it is headed at this point, but so far, it has been a lot of fun, and will hopefully have more to share in the future. (you can click on the image above to get a larger image)
Been getting a lot of good response from the most recent postcard mailing, more so than I usually hear right out of the starting gate in previous mailings. As a result of the postcard, a new client contracted me to do a similar ‘busy city’ scene for an interior illustration for their magazine (pictured above). You can also see a more detailed version of the art by clicking on the above image.
So far, May has been a big improvement on April, with regards to workload. Keeping fairly busy and a good balance between short and long term projects. Pictured below is one of the quick turnaround assignments I had this week for one of my regulars on college health care plans.
