Hope everyone has a great turkey day! Don't eat (or drink) too much...and don't talk politics at the table. It never turns out well.
What's up everybody? I was lucky to get the opportunity to create this alien puzzle for Crocodile Creek a while back, and it's finally available. I had a lot of fun with this one. I sketched a ton of aliens, but eventually narrowed it down to these guys. The background was influenced by the old Roadrunner cartoons I grew up watching as a kid. I guess those countless hours spent glued to the TV watching Saturday morning cartoons have paid off after all.
Some of the alien characters left their planet to wind up on this cool rubber ball too. Check it out!
I know I'm constantly apologizing for my sporadic blogging, so I won't this time. I did want to show you guys some of the things I've been up to lately, though.
I did this reusable vinyl sticker playset for Peaceable Kingdom a while back and it's finally out! The folks at Peaceable Kingdom are great to work with, and they produce lots of really fun stuff. Check 'em out here. I designed the monsters, an interior and exterior background, and did the art for the package. I really had a blast working on this project and I'm thrilled with the results. C'mon, who doesn't love drawing monsters?!
Hey everybody! I recently got back from a trip to NYC, where I had the good fortune to attend the Society of Illustrators show. I got this portrait of a lion accepted into this year's publication. Of course, it was loads of fun and great to have a little break. I'm back in Cleveland now, trying to play catch-up with all the work that got neglected while I was away tearing up those streets of Manhattan. Oh well...back to reality.
I did this fun counting game illustration for Clubhouse Jr. magazine a few months back. When I received a sample of the publication, I was thrilled to see that I was sharing the pages with my favorite soul sistah, the lovely and talented Vanessa Brantley Newton.
The art director, Kathleen Gray, is great to work with and asked me to make the boy African American and give him cool hair. I had a lot of fun with this one- especially his hair!
Hey everybody-I'm in the process of setting up shop on Etsy where I'll be selling original silkscreens and t-shirts. This is the first silkscreen I have up, but there will be a bunch more shortly. I did this relaxing Sasquatch for a group show a couple of months ago. I also did a blue version as well. Check out my Etsy site here. Much more to come!
