After all these years, I’ve finally got some hardware capable of doing digital drawing – and so I’ve been spending time playing around with it in my spare time, getting used to how it feels, and learning how to use Manga Studio 5.
Here’s a quick drawing I did today, just for fun:
No story behind it, just a bunch of random doodling here. Hopefully I’ll have more soon!
If you’ve ever looked through my album of drawings for the Year of Art 2011 project, you might recognize one of the illustrations used in the Los Angeles Coalition for Water Conservation (LACWC)’s new campaign, Dustbowl Disciples:
At around 0:46, you’ll see this:
And that should look pretty familiar – here’s drawing #150 from the Year of Art 2011, appropriately titled ‘Dry Mouth’:
Some of the people who worked on the Dustbowl Disciples project were kind enough to reach out to me about using the artwork, and I was happy to help. I re-drew this illustration for them, providing a much cleaner vector version!
I wrote this post with the intent of highlighting the use of one of my illustrations, but I’ll close it by saying that if you’ve got a project which requires illustrations (new or existing), do get in touch with me using my contact form. I’m almost always up for work like this!
Here’s the final of the poster I made for one of my ex-coworkers, who is at the 49ers/Seahawks game on Thanksgiving. Maybe they’ll get it on TV!
Either way, you can enjoy it here now.
After a little more work, here’s the final set of portraits to be used for the football sign I mentioned in the previous post. For any 49ers fans out there, do these guys look recognizable to you?
One of my former coworkers at CytoSport commissioned me (with beer) to create an illustrated sign for her for an upcoming 49ers game. Here’s a work-in-progress image of some of the player portraits for the image.
