Studio tour! Not really, but I finally picked up a copy of the awesome Banana Republic Guide to Travel & Safari Clothing and wanted to share it’s glory with all of you. While I was at it, I thought i’d show a few of my favorite studio items. Hurrah!

The book

I’ve been green lit to illustrate an astronaut. Fun! Love this job.

Recently, while browsing the Library Of Congress Image Archive, I was stopped in my tracks by an old photograph of a curious looking crewman. The boater in the picture has an incredible resemblance to a character I illustrated some time during 2009; similar not only in genre, but clothing, muscle build, mustache, and even gesture.  I couldn’t resist the urge to do a side by side comparison.

weird, eh?

Well here is a fun update. I recently did the cover for Plansponsor Europe for an article regarding the status of pensions in Greece.  Hopefully with the art you can tell what kind of shape that system is currently in…

This is my first cover for Plansponsor and needless to say I was really excited when the opportunity came up. It’s a real honor to follow some of the people I look up to the most in this business on such a stage.

Also, I don’t normally share the sketch stage, but hey what the hell, these were some of the other thoughts…

see the digital version here:

In other news, I was walking home the other day, late late afternoon to be exact, and as I crossed McGolrick Park I suddenly found myself experiencing a real life Magritte painting.  Magritte is one of my favorite artists of all time, (ask me why…thats for another post) as you can imagine it was a rather surreal moment. yes, pun intended. It brings into question, maybe Magritte was just painting what he saw? Just sayin…
