I was getting ready to post some new illustrations and catch up a bit, and I realized there is so much we haven't talked about lately! There are new paintings in the works, travel, an out-of-state exhibit, getting over this winter right, and some new illustration work... I'm just gonna have to catch you up one thing at a time.
Let's start with this. I know portraits are my thing, but recently I got to jump ship and do some fashion illustration for J Shoes. Don't get me wrong, I love painting all y'all's faces, but this was a nice change of pace. Check it.
Great letter-pressed cover with stitched binding for the newest J Shoes product book
And the same shoe in production...
This illustration is based on a CAD drawing of a shoe that hasn't
yet been produced
Anyhoo, it was great to switch things up for a minute. I also got to throw these together for a job that is still pending, so I'm not gonna get into this one too much...but I'm stoked on these. (And shout out to Bill Stevenson and Waverly Color Company for hooking me up with the inks!!!!)
This is a composite. The full paintings can be viewed on my flickr.
We should get together again soon. I'm really excited about things like new paintings, getting to wear a bikini under some palm trees last week, and going to work with some new clients in Los Angeles next week. I'll tell you guys about all that next time. Right now, I'm back to work and then heading to Har Mar Superstar and the Sneaks at Metro. I haven't been out in a crowd in a minute and it will be fun to see all my homies!
