On The Drawing Board- 3/21/13

March 21st, 2013 | Posted in On the Drawing Board

Pretty busy right now with several different projects:

  • MAD book illustration– a super-secret and very fun little job for an upcoming major MAD book. This is still in the early stages but I’ll be working with a writer I’ve never worked with on it, and it will be an original piece for this new MAD book I can’t talk about.
  • Workplace Poster– My usual monthly assignment.
  • Advertising Illustration– This is a really time consuming but interesting project for the back of a film industry publication. It features caricatures of 60 plus people who work for this movie industry company, and it is a spoof of a famous movie poster. It’s also going to be gigantic…they want it big enough to be on the side of a bus shelter for alternate use. I’ll be able to post it after it’s published.
  • MAD Cover!!! Ok, not for MAD itself but for an upcoming MAD special issue.
  • WB Product “Alfred” Illustration– one more of these to do for T-shirts and merchandise… in review phase right now.

The drawing board is pretty MAD heavy right now with several side projects for them… and I am probably going to get assigned something for issue #522 any day now. Speaking of WB product stuff, I noticed they used one of my preliminary pencil sketches for the “Alfred Spy” illustration as a t-shirt design:


Here’s a couple of the preliminary sketches for that Alfred Leprechaun design I did… maybe they’ll end up as “sketch shirts”?:

    Hmm I wonder what the book is about?
