Society of Illustrators

I got a piece into the Society of Illustrators student competition, specifically the W. Burroughs portrait above. Holy crap!
Congrats to Lindsay and Will, who also got pieces in!

UPDATE: I've received a Society of Illustrators Education Committee Award! I've never been so honored.

Three Postcards

These are concept sketches for my three promotional mailers. The vague theme they share is either senses or "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil". They make zero sense, and can be thought of as surreal visual puzzles ... maybe?

UPDATE: These are no longer going to be used, I've chosen to focus on more portrait driven mailers. Stay tuned. 9 April 2009

Alan Moore Finish

Here we have the finished Alan Moore piece. I'm encountering that unholy phenomenon of finding my sketches more appealing than my finishes again, perhaps because I spend too much time on preliminary work and not enough on the finish. I'm thinking scale worked against me here as well, I prefer to work vastly smaller. (This piece = 20" x 30".)
