ball point

I wanted to paint tonight, but I didn't get around to it. Instead, I took the easy route and worked in my sketchbook. I've been using my sketchbooks a lot lately, which hasn't happened in a VERY long time. I forgot how much I love working with ballpoint pens. I've posted a couple of sketches that I just finished.

This is another "being" character in my ongoing series. I would love to someday make a sculpted version of these characters. "Guardian"

to the point

I don't have many words to add to this post tonight. I just wanted to post this latest piece. "Narcisse"

I just got this in the mail today. I did a cover for a Penguin book awhile back called Light Boxes by Shane Jones. Since the book came out, I've been contacted by numerous publishers from different countries to use the cover for their editions. I especially liked this redesign of the cover, so I asked the art director is she could send me a copy. As you can see, this edition has a box awesome! I'd like to thank Alice Beniero of ISBN Edizioni for sending and designing this!

My second Penguin cover that I worked on(designed by Paul Buckley) comes out next month, so I'll make sure to post more about that soon!

tribute #2

This is my latest contribution to This time, the selected artist is Al Hirschfeld. I owe much of my inspiration to his work. My earlier works were heavily inspired by Hirschfeld. He truly was( and is) the master of linework. The post at probably won't be up until sometime next week, but i'm sure it will be worth checking out. I decided to pay tribute to the artist by drawing him under the influence of his style.
