I’m working on some new vector illustration material. This is a piece of a larger composition. I’m going back in to some of my past works and rendering them as vector illustrations. I’ll post the finished piece soon when it’s finished.

Happy New Year!

It’s time to sort through all of those New Year resolutions. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of time to forget them too.

Pen and Ink, Watercolor, and Graphite illustration.

Sketches and concept drawings for my finished works. These two will make an appearance in my children’s book.

President Obama endorsed Hillary Clinton today for the Democratic Presidential nomination. I thought this would be a good time to re-post this image.

Andrew Bird Music Illustration
Pen and Ink with Watercolor

I’m starting a new series of work featuring musicians. These are larger pieces at 22″ x 30″ on watercolor paper. I start by drawing the image in pencil followed with the line work with pen and ink washes. The background is watercolor wash with splatter and dripping techniques.

I’m finishing them off by selecting a song and working type digitally on top. These are quite a bit of work but a great deal of fun!

Illustration Process

A couple of process images. I’m working on a series of drawings of musicians. This is Andrew Bird. I wanted to get a copy of this version. I have changed the eyes in the final version but this shows a bit of the process in the pencil drawing. Still trying to keep the line quality lively and loose with pen and brush work. This piece is 22″ x 30″ and I will throw a bit of color on at the end.
