I have a moderate amount of stuff on the board right now. Today I had deadlines for two jobs, one a workplace poster and one an ad job… both “in the can” as they say in the bidness. The poster job is another of the workplace posters which I can share after I complete, so that is posted below. Other stuff right now includes:
MAD– I’m trying to wrap up that two pager from September that got bumped because I have a new one coming possibly today, and it’s going to be a really fun job. There is something to like about every MAD job, but sometimes they give me one that I really wanted to do… and this is one of those! It won’t be on the stands until #487 in February, but I’ll share it as soon as I’m able.
Multiple advertising jobs- Ad jobs used to be few and far between but I just wrapped one up for today and I have two others in the works stuck in client approval limbo. One is for a mortgage company and one for a car storage company.
Personal projects- These are starting to pile up. I often have a personal job or two I have promised to get done “in between” other jobs, and when I am super busy these get to become a tall pile of scariness. I have a glimmer of hope to get to some or all of these this week: another Sherlock Holmes audiobook illustration, the 2008 NCS Reuben Awards artwork, “turn arounds” for a 3-D animation class’s project and a personal caricature I have been promising to do for two years.
I also have some lines on two other projects that, if they come through, may make December pretty interesting. Here is that poster job, including pencils and finals. Nothing special, just a typical workmanlike cartoon illustration for this client.
