Portraiture

Hudson Valley, Today Media

After a year which has been filled with a lot of book projects, where I’ve been working on the same style every day for months on end (mostly pen and ink line art lately), it was nice today to have a change of pace. The above portrait was a two page spread for Hudson Valley magazine (usually I do spot art for them, and this was the first time they tried a portrait for a feature article, at least with me). Not a lot of photo reference for the face available, so I always get a little nervous that I’m capturing a close enough likeness. Anyhow, it was refreshing to work on some quick turnaround assignments (and a few more coming next week, as there is a brief lull in the book projects between sketch and final stage).
