On the Drawing Board- 4/3/09

April 3rd, 2009 | Posted in On the Drawing Board

For a one-armed artist I am staying pretty busy. Here’s what I’ve got going right now on the drawing board:

NCS Reuben T-shirt Illustration– Wrapping this up over the weekend. I will share it once I get the okay from NCS president Jeff Keane.

Cover art for Stay Tooned #4– I was honored to be asked to do the cover for John Read‘s terrific magazine. That I will finish next week.

MAD job– Two pager that got bumped from issue 500 and will now be in #501, so a ton of time before that is due.

Workplace poster– My usual monthly assignment from The Marlin Company. Incidentally they are preparing to sell individual copies of these posters as stock allows on their website, so when I get more info on that I’ll let people know if they are interested.

“Super Capers” DVD comic– Not much to this as all I did was crop and size the panels of the comic into a DVD video frame format. It will be included on the DVD release of the movie as a video comic.

Not much I can share at this time, but here are cropped sneak peaks from two recent jobs where I used the colored line technique I’ve been experimenting with. I will be able to show the full jobs plus sketches, etc. sometime later this month:

    Hey Tom! I really like the new painted line look for your work. I think it adds a nice dimension to your stuff. Can’t wait to see the full size images. Keep up the awesome work!

    Looks great man, nice use of the technique.
    You get more work done than most dudes with one arm tied behind your back!! Er y’know, on your side…d’oh.
    Cheers dude

    Yeah, must say I too dig the colored line technique, although I’m sure it adds tons of work to your already busy schedule. Still, nice touch.
