Worries at Home Ribbon Design

I just finished a new version of a collection of some old illustrations of mine for a print to be sold in military bases and print shops. It's to help keep up the moral of the troops family and loved ones. I've created several new versions using these four scenes of the soldier.

Worries at Home Ribbon Design

The basic story of the figures are when the soldier is being deployed he misses and worries about his family, then he starts to receive letters that things are going fine and then he can focus on his soldier responsibilities. Original is 30" x 40"

Updated Sketches and Experiments Gallery

I just updated my Sketches and Experiments Gallery with 8 new images. These are all traditionally illustrated using various techniques. Some are demos from my teaching at SCAD.

My radio interview

Well I had my interview on June 12th and probably very very few heard it. I was told when I got there that the AM radio signal reaches as far as 1 whole mile from the station. Most live broadcasts and archives are only available through there website. It's basically a internet radio station. So if you can stand listening for an hour to my um's and uhh's and some local commercials here it is in mp3 format. It's about 20 MB so it's not recommended for dial-up users. The first 5 min or so got cut so it starts real abrupt.

Wealth Management Concept Illustration Process

Just a few days ago I finished up 3 illustrations for Suntrust. This is a process of one of them dealing with the abstract concept of Wealth Management. They wanted something beyond the obvious wealth symbols while showing generations in a generic way. I tried to make it as short as possible but it's still about 8 min long. Has music too! Go Home Productions Mash Ups Annie Rush and Ride (Rabbit Hole Mix) Used with permission.

The Mansion Process

In May I completed a new illustration of a hotel/condo that is not built yet called The Mansion. This is a part of my sped up process of how it was done. The final drawing took me about 3 days working 14 hour days. The video is about 5 minutes long. Music By The Postal Service (John Tejada Remix).
