SUMMER ROUND UP

August 27, 2010

As summer is slowly (emphasis on slowly) grinding to a halt I thought I would put together a bit of a round up.  I was kept remarkably busy and even managed to fit in a fair amount of traveling too.  Places to knock off the list: Los Angeles, Cincinnati, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and numerous trips down to ‘ol Philadelphia.  LA was cool, but not for me, Cincinnati has way to many state fairs and parades, and I swear it, Im moving to Vermont next year. Oh and Philly, its cool, I see you.

Along with the usual stuff, I have been involved in some long term projects these past few months and while I can’t really share much right now I thought a few previews could do some good. Summer may be winding down, but people, it’s only September (not even) we still have plenty of time!  SO here is a little bit of a round up, Including a new personal piece which follows along in the series from my MFA Thesis.

Full page for OC Magazine, which goes with the drop cap from below. (not a long term project!)

OC MAGAZINE DROP CAP

August 4, 2010


As part of a bigger assignment, I was given my first chance to do a bit of hand lettering for OC Magazine. The drop cap is styled in a way to go hand and hand with the full page illustration, however for now I don’t think I can reveal that. Sherlock Holmes would decipher that the image must have some kind of stone, rock, or…. statue… in the composition.

I enjoyed doing the letter, it was a fun challenge to bring the sensibilities of my art into lettering without compromising my personal aesthetic. I think I got pretty close. enjoy!
