On the Drawing Board- 2/4/14

Egg Hunt final
Clicky to Embiggen…

The drawing board is heating up in the cold of our Minnesota winter. Lot’s of regular client work on the board as well as a few different projects:

  • Marlin Co workplace poster– My usual monthly assignment. Last month’s art above.
  • Comic book project– I’m really digging in to this one right now, and it will usurp a lot of my time over the next two months. It’s a 45 page comic written by a veteran TV comedy writer. I’m doing all the art (pencils, inks and color) on interior and cover. His plan is to have them in print in time for Comic Con this summer. I will certainly plug the project when the time is appropriate.
  • DC Comics cover– This April DC is going to have another run of “variant covers” done by MAD artists, and I’m doing one again. Last year’s was a lot of fun. Just did the pencils and got them approved, will be inking and coloring later this week.
  • Corporate caricatures– A local design firm occasionally hires me to do caricatures of executives for their corporate clients. Not usually my favorite kind of project but the art director for this firm happens to be an artist who worked for me doing caricatures back in the early 90’s at my Minnesota theme park operation, and corporate work like this can pay quite well.
  • Penthouse “Dave Navarro” spot illustrations– a run of three more of these, used as the column header graphics for Dave’s love/sex/life advice column in the magazine. See below for the one I did for this month’s issue.
  • MAD Movie parody– Awaiting the layouts to get started on this one for MAD #527.
  • Misc Commissions– Finishing a couple of James Bond commissions this week as well.
