Today I completed the ‘Car Coloring Book’ project for Dover with a trio of color plates of some of the interior pages for usage on the cover. I’ll be sharing more samples from this book after it is published. In the meantime, a happy 4th of July to everyone, and I’ll have some older samples (from previous coloring books) to share next week.
Almost finished with the ‘car coloring book’ project for Dover, and in the afternoons, have been working on the interior art for my band’s new CD. This is an album of ‘Michigan themed’ songs, so I did a map featuring cartoon images from each of the songs that we’ve recorded, plus place names that have been mentioned in various songs. A lot of work went into it, but it will likely be so tiny on the CD jacket that a lot of the details will get lost. (a good excuse to cut a vinyl of this album just so we can showcase the artwork in a larger format)
Still working on the Car coloring book for Dover (about 5 from the finish line at this point), and have been working on the design of the interior of my band’s CD packaging in the afternoons. Today I had a short turnaround piece for Hudson Valley magazine (pictured above). More samples later in the week.
In between projects today, I took some time to design a tee shirt to offer in conjunction with the new CD that my band will be releasing in the next few months. Not much illustration involved with this, mostly found and photoshop manipulated imagery and type design. I still have about another week of ‘drawing cars’ for my new coloring book project, but I may post a few more samples from some of the Penguin biographies I’ve been doing over the past several years, later this week, so stay tuned.
