Dr. Sketchy's

I attended a Dr. Sketchy's drawing session earlier today. Our model, Talia, is usually an aerial artist (think Cirque du Soleil) but was dressed up similar to a Victorian Harlequin tonight. Unfortunately it was incredibly crowded and my standing position (with a bar stool to lean against no less) meant I didn't get a very good view of her feet at times. Here's a few of the sketches that came out of it anyhow. I apologize for the quality; they were done on newsprint paper and I just sorta leaned over 'em with a camera. Enjoy!

Work Shirt

Super quick design I came up with for my company. Sadly, it didn't win the competition, so it'll just find a home as an unused design here. Enjoy!

Digital Artist Magazine

A few weeks ago (maybe it's months?) I was asked to show a Photoshop tutorial for Imagine Publishing's Digital Artist Magazine. They requested an image with a boy, attempting to fly a kite, or with a strange contraption (the magazine said it was housing too many pieces with a female as the main component). The task was to explain what "makes successful concept art" without going into the physical step-by-step process of Photoshop tips. It was more about good composition, lighting, researching clothing, etc. Anyhoo, if you purchase the magazine, you can see the step-by-step process through screen shots. But you can view the final product here:

I was contacted a few months ago to be informed that my illustration, Duck 'n Cover would be included in the very awesome EXPOSÉ 8 put out by Ballistic Publishing. SUPER EXCITING! I'm still baffled as to how it got in there, I figure they like choosing more...rendered images over the flat-color look, but HEY. I'm not complainin'!! Here's how it appears in the book:

They asked that I take a photo with it for the site and to shed light on what the artists look like. They requested that each artist go somewhere famous, and important to them. SO. Here's me, with the great view from the roof of my apartment, overlooking the side of San Francisco that generally gets neglected (because it doesn't include the Bay).
