The Wedding invitation...

A good friend of ours is getting married at the end of October and instead of getting her a gift, she asked for my wife and I to design a pattern for her wedding invitation. She wanted us to try to incorporate both their interests, like food, traveling, modernism, wine and more. This is what we came up with...

The wedding is going to be in Palm Springs and my wife and I are pretty excited to see all the goodness there as they are revered for their mid-century homes there. Plan on taking lot s and lots of pictures. Thanks for looking and enjoy...

I was commissioned by a Dr. Stephen Frueh, marriage counselor/motivational speaker, to do a book cover for his latest book "From Marginal to Magnificient- How to Make Your Marriage Sing."

We went through several compositions, but they were all variations of the same theme, a couple on stage bowing to a cheering audience. Exactly who is saying "You're welcome" isn't quite so clear. Is it the audience or the couple? Or both?

Anyhow, below is a a more complete picture of the illustration and a the actual jacket of the book itself.

Stephen was a joy to work with am glad to be working with him on another project which is still under wraps. Once that drops, I will make sure to post it up here...

And as a throwback to last week's DrawerGeeks Incredible's topic and Illustration Friday's Strong theme, this is the illustration I created.

As always, this piece is still a work in progress. So for now, enjoy...

The blog popular Chicken Nugget Lemon Tooty is celebrating its 3 year anniversary and to commemorate the occasion, Aaron Zenz put a call out to any artists who like to contribute artworks based on illustrations created from his two very talented kids, Isaac and Gracie.

So sorry, I can't take the credit on this one. Sharkman is actually the product of Isaac. After seeing this:

I HAD to do my animated version of it. Below is just my rough sketch of finished piece above. Enjoy.

Going back to my roots...

"Sorry I'm so late MJ, I just got wrapped up in something..."

It's been awhile since I had done any finished artwork related to comicbooks so this experiment in a new technique of inking and coloring was really an excuse for me to get back to my roots. Comicbooks is part of the reason I am an artist today, so it was a way for me to try something new with something familiar. So internets, let me know what you think. Good or bad, either way, I want to know.

Also, here is an older piece that fit in with this week's IF theme. I just wanted to give you a frame of reference of how much a departure my spiderman piece is to my old style.

Thanks for reading and enjoy...

I had a ton of fun with this one. I was hired to create a banner for a children's jumper that needed a monster trucks theme. It was a bit of a throwback to my childhood days when I used to think these things were friggin awesome.

Here are some close ups of the individual modified beasts...

And here is a little nostalgia for you...

IF: Worn

Poor little blue girl, always falling for the wrong guy. But what else do you expect from a girl who has always worn her heart on her sleeve?

This was actually based off an old illustration that I decided to ink and update a bit. Here is what the original sketch looked like.

Also, I wanted to include here is a little IF catch up. I put together a new business card design using one of my owl pieces and I thought it fit with last week's "drifting" theme.

Hope you like it. Enjoy!
