Just here for a moment to catch my breath

It has been an engrossing few weeks, with a veritable avalanche of client work falling onto the drawing board. (I am feeling very fortunate, I'm having lots of fun, but it's also a little overwhelming.)

In lieu of any caption contests, or any sort of post with a high word count, here are a few images of projects currently or recently on the board:

One of 12 cartoons for E-Money Advisor (Click to enlarge any of these)
One of three cartoons for a long term client; a technology company in California that pioneered in cloud computing.
On of 15 Illustrations for an English as a second language book.
A monthly comic feature for a technology magazine.
Three sketches in various states of finish for a children's book that I'm in the beginning stages of illustrating. There will be 27 illustrations total, in color. I'll probably use watercolor washes.

A new political cartoon created yesterday for Merk Investments Link to cartoon on Merk website
Also on the board right now: Product drawings for a new customizable girl's doll, (for a toy company in Maryland), illustrations for a family/marriage counseling service in Boston, a monthly cartoon for a Michigan schools association and a regular cartoon for a leadership conference in California. --Well, that was a nice back to the drawing board!

    The children's book sounds interesting...what is it about?

  2. It is about a boy who, after lots of dreaming about it, gets to go to a monster truck show with his dad. I have to admit that when the author approached me, I was a little unsure about taking it on, because I know nothing about monster trucks. But a friend at my gym is a big fan of such things and has been supplying me with stories and websites for drawing references. I had no idea that these monster trucks were so detailed or that they were so much fun to watch.

  3. Wow! It's been a long time since my last visit here. You've got lotsa good stuff coming down, Mark!


Let me know if I can answer a question.
