On the Digital Drawing Board: Book Illustration

My apologies for neglecting the blog for a few weeks. The year has started off with a sizable bang. No need to go into detail, other than to say there has been a good number of fun projects thus far. So without further delay, here is a small taste of the book illustration work on the board thus far this year...(corporate projects in a post to follow.)

An illustration for a biography...(more details later)

Two of 36 cartoon illustrations created for a book called
"Overage Dating: The Adventures of Aunt Frieda"

One of over 20 illustrations created thus far for a humor book about online dating.
A cartoon for a school textbook 

On the Drawing Board: Corporate Clients

Continued...some of the cartoons and illustrations created for corporate clients recently....

Two cartoons for Chicago based Straight North, Inc. They were written by Brad Shorr,
 a collaborator and client going back several years.
A cartoon for long-time client CGNet, announcing Microsoft 360. B&W here, color added below.

A follow-up illustration to accompany an article for family-friendly Cozi.

One of several gift card holder/greeting cards intended to be marketed in Home Depot.

A cartoon commissioned by They called me this week and asked me to create
 two cartoons that take aim at the NRA. In this one, I went after NRA chief Wayne LaPierre.

A cartoon for regular client Merk Investments...regarding the Fiscal Cliff

Another of the weekly cartoons created for Merk Investments; this one depicting the battle of the currencies.

A piece for "Leadership Review", which involved drawing the Trevi Fountain in Rome.

A package illustration for a waterproof iPhone protector, (created and designed by an old college roommate!)
On the digital drawing board in the next few weeks are two book illustration projects and several corporate client jobs, including an animated video for Intel Corporation. (The third in a series for them.) Some long days and nights ahead.
