Today’s illustration is another (sort of) paying job. An illustration for a friend’s promotional postcard mailer.
For today’s drawing I decided to go back to the gouache tools again. I wanted to play around with some portraits, so I found some anonymous high school yearbook portraits that I found on google and painted a quartet of them, trying to stretch myself colorwise, choosing colors I wouldn’t ordinarily use, and trying for more of a rough painterly approach to it. This was a lot of fun, I may do some more like this tomorrow. (you can get a little closer look by clicking on the image above)
Today’s illustration was an assignment for Barrons. I wasn’t sure how they were going to lay out the page, so I did two versions of this one, one with a background, and one without. The assignment called for a picture of the character of Liza Doolittle’s father from Pygmalion.
Today’s drawing is an illustration assignment that I had for the Chronicle due early this morning. A few more assignments have trickled in over the past few days, so I may be posting less ‘extracurricular’ work over the next few days, and concentrating on making a living instead (thank goodness).
