A meat and potatoes post about some of the work I've done over the last few months commissioned in my "O-town" style. This is a cover for a sequel to an earlier cover I did, MacMillan UK. The book is about a fellow who abandons his mushroom loving life and moves to the South Pacific where he marries the queen of a remote island.
On the left is the back cover, the "bowler-shaped" tropical island. On the right is the first cover I did in this series.
For Plan Sponsor, SooJin as usual sent a simple tag-line, "Falling Knives" to illustrate. Looking at this reminds me of the mood that seems to permeate just about everything these days.
I couldn't decide which one worked better, so I sent her a few to choose from. Not sure which one she went with.
This was a really fun job for Boy's Life, a spread about catfish. The a.d. wanted a mock 50s horror poster type of thing with a giant catfish monster haunting a catfish hunter.
This is a cover illustration for Harvey Mudd College alumni magazine. The theme was networking with former alumni.
This is a cover for POZ magazine. The a.d. only asked for a basic circus/money theme, and I'd been working on the Lord of the Ringlings, so I was in the right frame of mind. He sent me the previous month's cover for a template, and it was a beautiful illustration by fellow drawger Marc Rosenthal.
