In the Works

In between deadlines I've been able to experiment a bit with mediums and trying new things. It's come down to the images shown. I was able to use my new method of working on a few recent projects with nice results and nice compliments from the clients. I tried watercolor, then gouache and then ink. I wanted something immediate and I've been having great fun simply painting these spot illustrations. There are no preliminaries beyond a rough sketch. A quick, loose pencil drawing is placed on the board and then I paint in acrylics. These are just the beginning....

Love these images, your experimentation and the atmosphere just cut me. Hope to see this kind of style in something bigger in the future from you.

Very bold and dramatic illustrations. I love the shadows and intensity of the characters. Very beautiful.
