Here is the commissioned portrait I’ve been working on for months. It was tough for many reasons. These guys are friends of mine, and Dan is an artist as well, which adds on even more pressure. I call it “Dan and Chris as Adam and Steve in the Garden of Eden”. Their dog, Jack plays the role of the serpent. Once I figured out the direction to take it, I had great fun, despite the looming deadline. The unveiling was Saturday in front of a small crowd at Dan and Chris’s.

Tablet PC has arrived!

While all the art you see here is done using traditional media, the computer is an essential tool these days. That said… My Fujitsu Tablet PC just arrived and I’m looking forward to getting into it. Using Alias Sketchbook Pro it will become a digital sketchbook. I can make preliminary sketches for paintings – or take them into Illustrator or Photoshop. Here is a sample of how it is used by one cartoonist.

I do, however create my share of digital illustration and will soon be putting up a website focusing solely on my digital work. I need a cool name, so any suggestions? email me – if I pick your suggestions I’ll give you an original drawing.
