new illo and Spectrum
Hey everybody! So no portraits for a couple of days as I am working on an illustration that I think could be a big piece for me. Recently there has been stories in the news regarding states trying to pass laws against sagging pants. Some legislation has the fines up to $500 or 6 months in jail. Here's some links: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15403683/
So I've decided to do a piece on this controversy as if it it would run as the cover to the Saturday Evening Post. The drawing up top is the final drawing before I transfer it to board (3x4 ft). I hope to apply what I've learned from the studies that I've painted and create a solid illustration. To tell the truth this is the first time I've done a painting of a full on clothed figure, let alone 2 characters, so it will be a challenge. I'm real excited though!!
In other news the nice folks at Spectrum sent me a copy (hardcover!!) of the newest volume. It was fortunate enough to have my artwork featured among some great artists. Make sure to check it out, it's an awesome book!
