Boards and Other Business

Today I’m adding a few new illustrations, mostly done for Adidas, Nike, BT, Intel and a smattering of other ad agencies and animation studios. These jobs are good for keeping me on my toes stylistically, and I inevitably end up using some of what I learn in my more personal work

Keep on Truckin’

Here’s a little comic sample I did earlier in the year. Sort of a Last Picture Show thing with a sprinkle of horror. I ended up doing a different project, but I kinda like this page.

Me at the Portland Art Museum

This weekend and the next, I’ll be an artist in mini-residence at Robert Crumb’s Genesis exhibit at the Portland Art Museum! The exhibit is pretty amazing- I believe they have the book up on the walls in its entirety, plus a bunch of Crumb’s reference and concept materials. Check it out, and come say hi! I might even bring Hotlanta if he’s on good behavior.

I’ll be at the at the big purple table on the ground floor at these times:

Hope to see you there!

Post-Apocalypse and Toeless Boots

Oh, Internet! I’ve been ignoring you, yes, but let me make it up to you with gifts.

The last few months I’ve been working on things I can’t talk about yet, so that makes for slim pickings, post-wise. Here are a couple pieces I whipped up on the side, though:

I did this for Sarah and her nonprofit employer, New Avenues for Youth, when they transitioned from a subterranean space to a shiny, newly renovated above-ground one.

Around that same time, I got hired to do a superhero-ish character design, and I used a pretty similar process for its execution.
