I haven’t been able to get caught up since coming back from the USO trip… plenty to do and still a lot ahead. Here’s what’s currently cooking in the studio:
- Feature Illustrations for Honolulu Magazine– A full page and several spots for an annual year end article. Might be hard to wrap my head around Hawaiian imagery in the midst of Minnesota winter.
- Column Header illustration for Penthouse– Several spots for a new monthly celebrity column in the magazine
- MAD TV parody– Just got assigned a 6 page parody of a show that’s been begging for the MAD treatment for a few seasons now. Sorry, can’t divulge the name of the show but the parody will be in MAD #508 due out in February. BTW, this will be the 6th issue in a row in which I will have done a movie or TV parody (if you count “Toyota Story” from MAD #504), which is great news… MAD is definitely stepping up its frequency of these kinds of features after a year or two of not seeing as many of them.
- New Members of Congress for “Bobble Rep”– after the U.S. election last month, there will be a new crop of bobblehead caricatures in the iPhone app I did last year… 106 new ones to be exact.
- Workplace Poster– My usual monthly assignment.
- Character Illustrations– Several pieces of art for a well known comedian for possible use in products, etc.
- Odds and Ends– Doing a Christmas card for a very good client (and friend), a caricature illustration of a popular morning show cast for a little side endeavor I am working on and a few other little projects.
Speaking of my usual workplace poster assignment, here is last month’s illustration, obviously scheduled for distribution in February… Click any image for a closer look:
