Welcome to Beantown

I just finished an illustration for Improper Bostonian, a local arts and entertainment magazine. They're easily one of my favorite freelance gigs, because I get a 10" x 12" full pager to tackle. And the art director gives me a lot of freedom. The articles are usually funny—this one is a laundry list of everyday annoyances for city-goers in Boston. I tried to cram a lot into the picture (worked large at 14" x 17") and had a lot of fun with the details. The street date is Oct 11th, so look for it if you're in town.

2 Heads

Just playing around with a brush in my sketchbook. I guess I shouldn't be afraid of brushwork as much as I does create a wonderful line. When I work in pen and ink, I normally use pen nibs—which don't give me quite the thick to thin line variation, but I'm more comfortable working with a pen as a tool. And I can achieve the same line with tablet in Flash. Actually, these were created with a brush I am still cheating.
