“Willie Nelson”

A full page illustration for Culture Magazine, this was another portrait of a popular tokin’ figure (see what I did there?). Like Snoop Dogg, Willie has very characteristic features and is a fairly easy likeness to get right. I felt like doing something quiet and dignified, hence the pose and choice of black and white.

“The Stunning Stefania”

I decided to do one-shot posters of all the girls from my “If This Hat is Missing…” piece. It started with just  a simple drawing of “Mirela,” which grew to drawings of all of them, and then backgrounds, and then fully-realized poster designs (with hand-drawn type) that were artificially aged in  Photoshop. There were clearly […]

“Snoop Dogg”

This was a full page illustration for the October issue of Culture magazine, a medical marijuana publication in Southern California. No story or anything, just a full-page portrait of Snoop Dogg. I don’t get asked to do portraits or caricatures of famous people very often, so I enjoyed the opportunity this assignment provided. Snoop Dogg […]

“Defender”

Doing these digital pieces has gotten me out of my comfort zone somewhat, and in this image I tried some new things. There’s a more focused narrative aspect going on here than usual in my stuff (don’t ask me what though, is mystery!). I studied some Japanese ukiyo-e prints for inspiration, and while my image […]

“Samantha”

I felt like making a drawing of a happy redhead, and the following image popped into my head. But then I thought, “No, that’s much to similar to one I just did. I’m such an idiot!” But then I thought, “No mom, I’m not an idiot! What if I make a drawing that is the […]

“Lydia”

Doing the “Vamp” piece put me in a mood to do some digital pieces,so here’s another one. I didn’t give any thought towards color until after the thing was already drawn, and I tried a couple different options before settling on green. Red looked cool, but that was too much like the Vamp drawing (and […]
