On Digital Drawing Board: Recent work



Hope you had a terrific summer.  It was a fun and busy time here, with several trips to Chicago (for my Mom's birthday), Scottsdale, (business), the mountains (vacations/breaks).

Naturally, there were also lots of entertaining projects. (I thought I'd post just a handful of those, as I don't want to bore anyone.)


----------------------

First, a personal commission for a family in Los Angeles who recently had a baby with a difficult delivery. Their obstetrician was evidently quite heroic in his efforts and successfully delivered the baby. They wanted something that could be framed and given to him as a thank you gift. 

I thought I'd share a little of my process here...


A B&W first draft with the doctor in a scene at the hospital. The client liked it 
very much, but I wanted to add a little humor to the scenario, so...

 I wrote this new dialogue: 


They loved the addition, so I added color, emailed the finished art for final approval...and then shipped the artwork. 

I understand the OB (below) was extremely happy and it is now on his office wall.

Another personal commission, this one for a client in New York who also wanted a framed cartoon to give to his brother for his birthday. (I don't know the significance of the Mexican gangster armadillos...I do know that the Porsche Boxster and Mercedes E350 are their cars. As a car nut and a casual fan of armadillos, it was a great deal of fun for me to draw.)
