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!

PUNX NOT DEAD

June 11, 2010

No, this isn’t a personal statement, just a bit of tongue in cheek humor. Strange as it may seem, there were a few punks in my town when I was growing up. I got along great with them all the way through high school. I wonder if they are still into that whole culture…

I once made a piece of parody art back in 8th grade about that catch phrase “PUNX NOT DEAD!”. Ill try to dig it up…

PRESS CHECK / THE ATLANTIC / TIGER WOODS

printing plate for mutual self-deception

A longer post.  As part of a promo package and subsequently a give-away at my thesis show, I am having an 18×24 poster printed of the image, ‘mutual self-deception’. The other day   I had the pleasure of a press check for color correction.  Good news- everything looked great, the pressman was really funny, and Queens seems to be a pretty cool borough. who’d of thought! I snapped a few pictures of my color plates while I was there.

This is the B/W side of the print...a Room of Follies

A side note about this image. I believe it is now running in the current issue of The Atlantic in their Gallery Section.  Based on those who have come before me, I feel honored that Jason has included my work.  go pick it up!

*for The Atlantic, gallery section

….and one last bit, I don’t get to do a whole lot of B/W work, but here is an image I cooked up recently. It was actually inspired by an episode of the old Hitchcock TV  show, but seems to be really fitting right now for Tiger Woods. In his honor, we will call it ‘The Tiger Woods effect”

As a youngster, growing up amongst the marshes of South Carolina, we use to spend a lot of time searching for bull frogs. ahhh, fond memories.

WATERMARK YOUR WORK! (watermark my work?)

April 7, 2010

In response to this little discussion you may have caught wind of…

“Just put a watermark across part of the image.”

“But boss, it kind of dilutes the product,I dont think we are effectively selling the message now.”
