I thought that I would go back through my samples and dig up some old pieces to post. I guess you could call it a "Greatest Hits" posting while I work on new pieces. Hell, if musicians can do it, why can't I?
This first one is a piece I did many years ago for a possible t-shirt design. The shirt was never printed but I always liked the icon. I have a version with a graphic behind him but I thought it was distracting.
The elephant was another t-shirt design that was actually produced for a kid's conference. The client handed out the shirts to the kids and said it was a big hit. I really like the graphic style of the image. Maybe I should go back to my heavy outlines for a few newer pieces.
The dragon was a project for an ice cream company in Pennsylvania. They were looking for something different so I thought why not have a dragon eating ice cream to cool his/her parched throat. Needless to say they thought it was a bit too different. I still got a decent illustration from it.
This image of the standup bassist was something I did for myself. My wonderful wife bought me a standup bass for my birthday so I was inspired to do this piece. I was listening to a lot of Mingus at the time which may have been an influence as well.
I like robots, especially old ones from the 40's and 50's. This robot was a demo piece I did for my Adobe Illustrator students. I projected the illustration on a screen while I worked on so they could see how I worked in the software. People always seem to like this piece a lot.
Well that is it for this week. We are to have some warm weather this weekend here in Maine so I guess it is time to start working on the outside of the house. Have a great week and until next time, keep drawing!
