A couple of projects for Dow Jones over the weekend. The project above was for an upcoming issue of Barrons, and the illustration below was a quick turnaround project on Friday afternoon for the Journal on ‘bunker mentality stocks’.
I had a series of eight illustrations for the Chronicle this week. These all dealt with various aspects of college quality ratings from different perspectives, and I used the ‘ruler’ concept and a similar color theme to tie them all together.
Been experimenting a little bit with some animation ideas this week. If you click on the image above, you will be linked to a quicktime movie of a short driving sequence featuring this car and road (sorry, I’m guessing the link has since expired). Eventually, I’ll be adding a background to this sequence, and then some music and sound effects, but for now I’m still working out the bugs in the system. This will eventually be used as a promo video for the comic strip series I’ve been working on this summer with a collaborator.
Animation is another one of those ‘side ambitions’ that I’ve long toyed with in a half-serious fashion for many years, but have never quite found the time to devote to it, nor ever had any clear sense of direction of what to do with it, if I had the time.
Another soup can label illustration for a company down in New Orleans (I had previously done a ‘streetcar’ illustration for this same client and a similar product line a few months back).
