Oddly quiet on the freelance front right now, with just a few projects in the works… one that I can share at this time.
- Gaming Website Images- On the final images for this job right now… it’s been a long road. One multiple layered/partially animated gaming environment, game play objects and element, sixteen different player avatars in multiple poses. Hopefully this game will go online soon and I can see it all in action.
- Workplace poster- my usual assignment
- Super Capers- wrapping up the 14 ‘turnaround’ character images.
- School Library Journal- This was a last second job with a tight deadline that I recently completed, and that the client has told me I can share here. It’s a straight forward full page vignette image to accompany a story on how today’s science fiction books/films are very different from those of the genre’s early days. The client also wanted to work “Wall-E” in there as a representation of modern Sci-Fi. Here is a succession of images from the project:
Two initial thumbnail concepts… one a full page and one a “cross gutter”
type layout. Often a magazine job needs to be placed within an already
set layout, but in this case they allowed me flexibility in that regard.
They liked the cross gutter layout, but wanted to swap some of the
characters around and leave room for a spread style headline…
…Great client to work for. It’s becoming more and more rare to find magazines that make extensive use of illustration and use it very well. The art director for School Library Journal send me several samples of some illustrated artciles they’ve done recently that had some terrific art in them from the likes of Drew Friedman and Fred Harper, among many others.
