sexy time

I got a chance to finish one of my sketches on one of my previous posts as a commission. I'm pretty happy with the turnout. The final piece is around 14"x 18".

i've been asked to contribute to a cool new illustration blog called it was put together by toby neighbors ( his idea for the site is to pay tribute to illustrators past by creating original works inspired by their works. unfortunately, i was too late to pay tribute to jc leyendecker on the first blog post, but i'm happy i had a chance to make a piece inspired by the works of norman saunders. saunders' did many pulp book covers, so i had a great time creating this piece. i'm not sure where "death hand man" came from, but it seemed fitting for this illustration. check out when you get a chance. the norman saunders should be up in the next week or so...

i'm headed to new york on october 1-7. it will be my fourth trip to ny. i'll be roaming around the city, so if you have any suggestions on cool things to do while i'm there, let me know!

a little something...

I don't want to go too long without posting, and since I can't post what I'm working on yet, I thought I'd post some recent sketches that I've done. I'm pretty sure all 3 will make it to a final illustration. I'm thinking of using "the savage" for a future silkscreen, and "space gangs" as a possible tshirt design. Nothing is confirmed with these plans.

Thank you for the nice comments on previous posts. I haven't had a chance to respond on each post, but comments are always appreciated.

strange title

this piece is the result of sketching frustration. i was unhappy with everything that i was sketching today until this piece finally came through. i'm not sure how the title of the piece came to me this time, but as soon as i finished it, the first words that came to mind were "birthday party".
