My Illustrations Receive Recognition from American Illustration

3 illustrations that I submitted to American Illustration 28(from left: "Boo!", "The King", and "Off The Grid") have been CHOSEN to appear on TRIBUTE; American Illustration's web gallery at ai-ap.com. The images will be on the site in November. They will be on the site permanently with my illustration that was selected in last year's competition-AI27.

This year’s distinguished jury included Luis Blanco, INTERspectacular; Max Bode, The New Yorker; Ken DeLago, Golf Digest; Kelly Doe, The New York Times; Matthew Lenning, Bon Appetite; Mitch Nash, Blue Q; Justine Strasberg, Nickelodeon; Michael Uman, INTERspectacular.

My images were 3 of only 583 images from a record-breaking 8,100 submitted to receive at least 2 votes and is therefore eligible to appear permanently on AI's website.

Children's Book Illustration?

Potential here for a children's book. The story would be about a boy that likes to scare people by putting on a fake bear head or other animal masks. This could lead to some consequences where the little boy learns a valuable lesson. Plus, I like to create animal illustrations and bear illustrations specifically.

Simple Line Art Illustration of a Man, His Wandering Thoughts and His Plaid Jacket

Experimenting a bit with my illustration style. Keeping it simple. I think this look could be good for clothing catalog illustration, editorial illustration, conceptual illustration, music industry illustration and portrait illustration. I like the antiqued paper background, black line done with pencil and the white shirt detail. I can see this style being expressive yet simple. Nice plaid jacket too on our model.
I have often liked my initial sketches more than the final illustrations. Here I've blown up a small sketch. I like that initial energy of the small sketch. It lives.
More to come...
