Palette Creatures

I’ve lucked into a magical palette. Creatures just keep showing up! This one is children’s illustration-ish.  I’ve pushed the PS vibrance up a little and smudged here and there.

Tenacity!

Sketchbook Potential

This sketch originated from another scrap of a ripped up monotype that turned on its side, happens to resemble a face and hat of a fairy tale character.  The rest is improvised. I think it just might turn up again as a fully realized children’s book illustration.

A very different (for me), sketchbook entry.  What do you see in the sky?

3×3 Illustration Annual #8 -I’m In It!

I’ve been entranced with  the  3×3 Illustration Annual  since I first discovered it one Saturday in Barnes and Noble.  Naturally,  I sat with it in the B&N cafe enjoying the eye candy more than my beverage.  My book wish list is always lengthy, but I bumped book title #1 and bought the Annual.  Since then, I’ve poured over the work, and offer it to young artists to demonstrate what’s going on in contemporary illustration.

Summer 2011 I received an email from Charles Hively informing me that one of the illustrations I submitted was chosen for the 2012 Annual, and I was to send a final jpeg for print.  The email came at a tough time for my family and my attention was elsewhere.  I sent off a jpeg and later worried that I’d sent an inferior copy…(I aways have multiples and I’m not so great at labeling them-that’s gonna change).

A few days ago,  the book arrived.  And while I will never be entirely pleased with any piece I make, I am honored to be included in this publication.  I’m still not sure which copy I sent, probably not the best one, but  C’est la vie.

Thanks Charles Hively and the judges.  Right now, I’m burning to make a new piece to submit sometime in the near future.

Another New Digital Painting

“The Rescue” also employs a scanned textural item. Obviously it’s the net.  The oranges that came wrapped in it were delicious.
