Persephone WIP

Because sometimes I just want to make a pretty picture.

Dogs and Grief

A full page spot for Modern Dog Magazine.
The AD wanted an image accompanying an article about grieving dogs, with a sad looking dog mourning the loss of a K9 friend.
I've never really drawn a dog before, so it was an interesting challenge combining different breeds to come up with the saddest, most pathetic looking creature possible. I ended combining the features of a Great Dane, Newfoundland Terrier and a Pug.

I really tried to challenge myself with a limited color palette this time, and I quite like the results. I used about five colors excluding black and white.

Oliver Sacks Process

My painting process from start to finish, starting with a digital color comp and ending with the pre-photoshopped painting.

Oliver Sacks

Here's a new painting I did just for kicks. I've been trying to gear my portfolio towards more editorial work, specifically portraiture.
I recently read about this dude named Oliver Sacks, a neurologist and author that suffers from a condition called Prosopagnosia (Facial Blindness). I thought that the man and subject matter would be fun to tackle in an illustration.

Hello wonderful people!

I just wanted to let you know that I've opened up a lil' etsy store!
So far are only 2 items available for purchase, as I'm posting 1 new item every day. Be sure to check back frequently!

Oh, and if you post a link to my store or website up on your blog you receive a 15% discount! Just send me a link to the post and I'll send you a revised invoice and a link to complete payment via email reflecting the discount.

But enough Jibber Jabber:

In the meantime if you're interested in purchasing something that isn't yet listed on Etsy, my old store is still up and running:

Each print is made with the highest quality archival inks on heavy weight fine art matte paper. Printed on an Epson Stylus Photo 1400, each print is backed with stiff cardboard and shipped in a stiff padded envelope. Every print is hand signed and dated.

Thanks for your support!
