Lots of projects on the board right now but many are of the kind I cannot show sketches or finals of until publication.
Workplace Poster– Another one of these jobs… this one is a fun one showing a frazzled woman running for her sanity from family and a co-worker all wanting her attention orhelp. I have to remember to add her lost shoe behind her…
Revisions for Nader Museum Job– These are finally being reviewed. I had to alter the composition of one panel and change the private detective from being “too thugish” in several others. Here’s an image of the “before” and one with the inserted revised pencil sketch. I also was told to lay off the monochromatic purple in this panel, so I roughed in some other tints while still trying to keep the feel of being in shadow. This is just one of several revisions for the job. Of course the pencil looks rough in place… the inked version will look much more like it belongs.
MAD Kids– Not one but two jobs for the next production issue. Both are different kinds of projects for me, and it will be fun to see how they turn out. I’ll make sure I save a few stages as images so when it’s on the stands I can post them here.
National Cartoonist Society– Once again I am doing artwork of the Reuben Weekend speakers used on the T-shirt and various other items. This year’s speakers are Jerry Van Amerongen, Mort Walker, Bud Grace and Sam Gross.
Don’t be surprised if the Dreaded Deadline Demon shows his ugly mug around here once or twice in the next several days.
