Illustration work

Delaware Today

Yes, I’m still doing illustration work. Here’s a few recent projects I’ve been working on. These black and white illustrations are chapter openers for an upcoming book on “Evolutionary Intelligence”.

Below is an illustration I did last week for Delaware Today, about a Lacrosse team who got caught in a racial profiling traffic stop.

Portrait

Delaware Today

Finished up the Delaware Today portrait this weekend. Tried to keep it loose and sketchy, and add a little more dynamics than were present in the original photo they gave me as a starting point.

Portrait Assignment Sketch

Delaware Today, rough sketches

Been a long dry spell for illustration work, but I’ve a few upcoming projects in the works. I got this assignment on Monday from Delaware Today (they had a photo they wanted to use, but it was pretty low resolution, and an illustration seemed to solve the problem I guess). This is the rough sketch I sent to the editors, and I’m hoping to do the finish in a style similar to the ones I’ve done of my friend Julie K recently (example 1, example 2).

Still Sketchy

Delaware Today

Still under quarantine around here with our positive Covid results. Here’s another rough sketch for an upcoming illustration. I’ve been growing fonder and fonder of my rough sketches the past few years, and wondering if I can’t turn this into a style all its own. I like the spontaneity and the rough unpolished look of these sometimes better than the finished versions. Something to think about down the road as my faculties start to decline.
