Kind of quiet on the drawing board right now, after a crazy December. Once that MAD job was in the can a week or so ago I have just a few smaller jobs with no crazy deadlines in sight. Here are some things I’ve got going that I can share:
Advertising Character- The client wanted a simple, small spot of an adult male with a “Home Alone” kind of expression. Very quick job. Pencil sketch and final after some revisions to tone it down a little and change the hair, etc…
Sherlock Holmes Illustration- This is going to be used by the same folks I did the audiobook art for a different project.
Workplace poster sketch- Another poster illustration, at the rough stage right now.
Final Law Museum Art- Wow, this was the most drawn out job I ever worked on. I first blogged about it back in July…2006!! These comic book style pages will eventually be part of an exhibit in a museum planned by a certain famous consumer advocate and former presidential candidate highlighting famous cases in consumer and personal rights law.
These will be 6 feet high, with text and artifacts from the cases they portray embedded and surrounding each display. I am one of a dozen comic book style artists that are working on the project. This museum is supposed to be opening in Connecticut somewhere, but apparently it’s been in the works for a decade.
Things I’m also working on but can’t share yet…
Movie Project- This is just about to heat up. I am doing a series of illustrations that will be partially animated and used in the opening credits as well as several scenes in this live action film. I can’t share more about it yet. It will be a lot of work but it should be fun.
Personal Commission- Hope to share this with you next week, along with a long story and apology.
Ad Job- Series of illustrations for a west coast company for an ad campaign. This one is also a long time between feedback and revisions, but nothing will ever top the law museum job in that category!
Retail Product Design- I’m working with a resin sculpture manufacturer on a series of sculpted, cartoon character pens that should be a lot of fun.
Sounds like a lot but not really. No deadlines and no jobs for MAD makes it a laid back drawing board. I have several projects from the last two months that should be published soon, and then we’ll have more “On The Drawing Board” goodies to look at…
