Good Vs. Evil

This is just something I was working on a while back that I never got around to posting.  
The idea is that this angel and devil that are always competing with each other to accomplish some sort of task...
Despite all of the devil's efforts, the angel usually comes out on top.  Sort of a "roadrunner/coyote" type of thing...

DUCK Show and Totoro

Now that some of the dust has settled and I've had some time to breathe again, I thought I'd post some of the work from the two galleries I was involved in; the DUCK!!! show (at D-Structure through September) and the Totoro Forest Project, which took place last Saturday at PIXAR.

These are the pieces I submitted for the DUCK gallery (and I hope to post some other work and photos soon)...

...And this is the piece that I submitted to the Totoro Forest Project (unfortunately I don't have a decent photo of it framed, but hopefully I will be able to get one...

DUCK!!! Gallery Show

The past few months, some friends and I have been busy putting together a gallery show in SF. The show was concieved as a way for us to get together and have some fun while showcasing our creative exploits outside of our daily work.  The theme of the show is centered around the simple, yet iconic rubber duck and features a broad array of styles and mediums. It was really a blast to be a part of.

If any of you are in the area (Lower Haight St) on Friday Sept 5th, please stop by!  We'd love to see you there.

In light of all the recent buzz about possible bigfoot findings and what have you, I thought I'd revisit an old comic strip character of mine, "BigToe".  He's your typical legendary, elusive, forest dwelling gorilla-man, with the slight distinction of having extremely large... big toes.

I just got some copies of my first official magazine illustration mailed to me, and I thought I'd post it up...
I posted the actual illustration a while ago, so to see it just scroll down. 
I'm pretty happy with the printing though -- even the design and typeface of the page next to it works well together.
It's fun to see my work take up a whole page in an actual publication!
Woo hoo!

Lookin Good...

I'm not gonna lie--
I've been pretty intrigued by the carwreck that is Amy Winehouse
as she's been making all of her graceful appearances in the media.
One of those "so bad you can't look away" sort of deals.

Well, I just came across this photo of her (which is by far not one of her worst ones),
and for whatever reason had the urge to draw it.

So here it is.

"Through the Looking Glass"

This is an illustration I was commissioned to do for an article titled "Through the Looking Glass" in Lexpert magazine (images shown with permission from Lexpert).  To sum up, the article is about lawyers leaving their big time firms to go work for themselves from home, and the difficult transition from one to the other.  They told me off the bat that they wanted sort of an "Alice in Wonderland/falling down the rabbit hole" feel to the illustration, so I just went from there.

I thought I'd show the stages, which were:
Rough Sketch
Color Comps

I had a great time working on the illustration.
Hope you enjoy!

Happy St. Patty's!!!

Either a dancing leprechaun,
or a sneak peek at a future version of myself.

Not sure which.

Hulk SMASH!!!!!!

As excited as I am to see someone else take a stab at a Hulk movie,
I still think it woulda been sweet for them to go "Old School Grey" with him...

Oh well. Maybe next time...
