There’s old Trader Sam… Three explorers came through here last week and Sam invited them for dinner. When he told them what the menu was, they completely lost their heads. I got there late. All I got was the cold shoulder and some finger food.

I came up with this illustration on a recent business trip to Cincinnati. I stayed at the Netherland Plaza hotel. Which was opened in 1931 and is one of the world’s finest examples of Art Deco style. It is just filled with inspiration from the classic architecture to the two-story ceiling murals.

.. and did I mention it is haunted by the Lady in Green.

Dancing with the Stars

SPACEMANI always say, if a catastrophe destroys your space shuttle and leaves you adrift, spiraling out into the blackness…completely alone.. facing an almost certain death… pretending to perform an old soft shoe like Fred Astaire is just the remedy to lift your spirits. Because.. in space no one can hear you tap dance.

Random Projects

Sometimes the quick turnaround projects are the best. i think it has something to do with not over thinking yourself and going on instinct. The past four weeks were filled with just those kind of assignments. Tight deadline, need it now stuff.   First assignment was Simon the Lion, competing with several other illustrators  we were asked to design a mascot for a website.

Next was a brief character study for a digital ebook. The assignment was to give the client an idea how the illustrators, chosen to participate in this project, would approach his characters.

Finally, a spot illustration for a college magazine article about student athletes who are also leading their classes academically.
