My friend Dana loves, and I mean LOVES, fly fishing. He tried teaching me, it was a disaster. He's been after me to draw fish, specifically ones he likes and wants to catch. So after many many months of his requests, here is the rooster fish that he is so eager to get on the end of his line. More fish to come in the near future, Dana and I have plans for these illustrations.
Here's a project I was working on in May while I was in Tanzania. It was for Good Eggs, a farm-to-fork type grocery store, kind of like Fresh Direct. They have 4 hubs, and Brooklyn is the office with which I was working. It was a fun spot illustration gig and I was bummed to find out the project was cancelled. I went ahead and added the captions which weren't part of the original drawings.
First post in a long time and first post of 2014! Here is a color study of a scalloped pattern I'm currently working on for a personal project. It will be part of a collection of 12 ocean-sealife themed patterns.
I just finished up working on a big project for 350 Solar, a solar energy start-up company, and their website goes live in a few weeks. I'll be posting that work up soon after! Stay tuned.
Today I got out of work early due to a barely functioning AC, which in turn made the office too hot to work in comfortably or sanely. So instead of heading home to a cool place, I went to the Jersey City waterfront at Exchange Place and sketched downtown Manhattan. I was aiming to have the drawing fit on one 11x14 sheet of bristol, but ended up using three. Pictured above are the buildings south of the Goldman Sachs building. The Freedom Tower is in there; a bit too short and incomplete. I made a separate drawing of the Freedom Tower on the left which I'll finish and add into the final drawing. I will probably redraw all this on one large sheet at some point in the near future. It was a super relaxing, albeit HOT, drawing session. There was a breeze that made the heat more bearable, but an annoying fly that has made multiple red, itchy marks on my legs.
Introducing the 100th A Drawing A Day drawing!! Starring Mr. Trex who is sporting a pair of Boon gloves from Thailand. He just had a fight and he lost. His arms couldn't reach his opponent. Sad face.
I'm sure he hates me for sharing this defeat with all the world.
