On the Drawing Board

October 24th, 2006 | Posted in On the Drawing Board

Very busy with several jobs right now but here are the pencil roughs for two in the works:

Workplace poster job:

Yet another one of these, but they are always fun and the Marlin Co. is a great client. I am unhappy with the figure on the left handing the deposit slip to the teller… he is very awkward and stiff looking. I’ll have to play with that one.

Personal commission:

This is the President of the Minneapolis Club, who is retiring this year. This is technically a print job for his “retirement brochure” (whatever that is), but he wants the original so it’s more of a commission, which I hate doing. We’ll see if this turns into another of those “that just doesn’t look like me” fiascos. I intend to do the final as an ink and wash, because the brochure is in black and white.

I am also working on a caricature of Pete Rose that will be used as a model for a sculptured collectors mug, sort of like a bobblehead but you drink out of it.

I also should be done with the Nader job by the end of the week.

Busy, busy, busy!

    Hi, I really hope you don’t mind me saying this, but that guy at the bank, well, er, ahem…. he looks like he’s pooping coin rolls the way you have him posed right now.
    (It was my first impression, as soon as I saw the image, then I looked closer and read your post.)

    It’s a nice drawing otherwise! 🙂
