Illest of Ill '08






Hope everyone is well. Lately I've been getting into high gear organizing a student run gallery show for my school's Illustration department. Even with tremendous help from my fellow classmates it's been crazy so far. But it's looking to be a good show. The theme this year is the Charles Dana Gibson's "Gibson Girl," and J.C. Leyendecker's "Arrow Collar Man." So I've been working on a few promo things...mainly t-shirts. These are the results so far. The guy's shirt is going to be produced for sure and the girl's shirt is up in the air. I also brought together a few sketches I did to get warmed up. We will be putting the shirts up for sale within the next month so if anyone is interested in purchasing either shirt feel free to email me. All the proceeds go directly back into the show.

I put the original ink drawing of the men's shirt up for sale in the store for all those interested.

take care,

P.S. Tickets for the Totoro Forest Project are now available. The show runs September 6th at the Pixar campus. I'll be there, so if you can make it, make sure to say hi! Also they just launched a blog with up to the date info right up to the show!

I'd love more than anything to attend the Totoro show. There will always be some other time, I hope!

Other than that, bravo with those shirt designs. I won't be able to make it to the Illest of Ill show, but sign me up for the first Gibson Girl t-shirt design. I want.
