Muammar Gaddafi Illustration

Working on some new editorial pieces for the portfolio and decided to produce a piece based around current events in Libya. Had a lot of fun with this piece- two versions produced, black and white and color.

After nearly two years I finally got around to producing an illustration of one of my favorite neighborhoods in St. Louis- University City and the Delmar Loop! In continuing the development of my more streamlined style I kept the illustration in a traditional ink style with digital coloring. See if you can find your favorite Loop location here!
Thanks to the folks at the Beacon!

New Blog Project! An Illustrative Body...

Well, I'm at it again- today I launched a new drawing blog project! In the ongoing spirit of Animals in Suits, and a wink in acknowledgement toward my own enjoyment of politics as a spectator sport, I have launched "An Illustrative Body: the 112th Congress Illustrated".
That's right, I'm illustrating the congress. All of them. Be sure to check out the new blog- I think you will enjoy it!

New Illustration: Five-Tailed Fox

I was approached awhile ago by my good friend and fellow illustrator Andrea Taylor about doing an art swap: a piece of artwork for a piece of artwork. Her request was for an illustration of a five-tailed fox, a creature from Japanese myth and her own avatar out here on the interwebs.

I managed to finish it up in between projects and have posted the final project below. I had a lot of fun with this one- pursuing another narrative illustration as oppose to my editorial work. I decided to show the fox in disguise as an orian (essentially a call girl from Edo period Japan) seducing then drugging a russian soldier in order to grab his blunderbuss. I thought this worked great as an example of the five-tailed fox's noted trickery.

Here are some rough sketches and color studies. Enjoy!
