Eric




Hello everyone (okay all three of you),

This is a sketch/caricature I did of my friend Eric many years ago. I did the sketch for a birthday present. Once I got the features the way I liked, I transfered the sketch and very loosely inked the tracing with a brush on illustration board. Once dried, I cut out about an inch around the shape and then mounted a paper stand to the back so it could stand up as a display. It looked funny as hell standing up on the table at the restaurant. I'm not sure if he still has it. Probably not because it scared his kids.

Until next week, keep drawing!

Sorry about not adding anything to the blog last week. Time got away from me.


I am going to post some doodles from my sketch books every now and then. Here is one that I want to work up into some type of promotion. I call him "Frank". I like the exaggeration of his features and like the face on the right. It adds more visual movement than the one on the body.

I think a Hawaiian shirt with sleeves from different shirts/sweaters would be a nice touch of silliness to the whole thing.

The bookmarks should be here early next week. I hope they look good! Overnight Prints usually does a nice job.

Finally!


Well, I am done with the bookmark design and illustrations. I think it took longer to get the type just right than to do the illustrations. I played around with different fonts but most seem to detract from the images rather than support them. I decided on something clean, simple, and readable. Now I just have to prep the file for the printer. Any thoughts or comments?
