Illustration swag!

Check out the swag I recieved in the mail for christmas from Jazz Times Magazine. I have done a bunch of illustrations for them over the past 7 months and they sent me these custom Jazz Times emblazoned Claves (latin preccusion instruments)! My first spoils of war of my freelance career! Thank you Jazz Times, my brother can't stand these things being clacked all day long.

the Daily Bob

every year during the holidays i do my best to keep up a regiment of daily bobs. That is draw at least one sketch of my brother, Bob per day that i am in his company. Much to the annoyment of bob I have created a large number of bob sketches over the years, the best of which are showcased in the "book of b.o.b." in the sketchbook section of my website. Here are my book of bob sketches from this holiday season so far, luckily i will have another week with bob, so james, esther, diana, jack, and others, you all will have a shot at bob maybe friday night drink and draw? i took a break from drawing bob long enough to draw my cousin jared

Sacramento News and Review Illo

Spot illo for the sac-town news and review. The art director really wanted to hammer home this general james jones character and I agree. He has been quoted basically saying "WE WILL NOT LOSE!!" and i thought that would be a fitting pictoral of the general. They didnt know if it was gonna be in color or black and white, newspaper guys, go figure. I kinda like the grey better actually, lot of good 3 hrs of coloring did guy.

Boston Pheonix spot illo

This is for an article about the passing of 2006 and the deaths that is brought, including lou rawls, jack palance, billy preston, don knotts, the american dollar, the american motor industry, augusto pinochette, GOP power, and the chance that bush might go down in history as the worst pres ever. You might be thinking hey none of thoese guys looks like the guy! Well wat do you expect for little money and shorty deadline when they want 10 figures?I did the best i could under the not so good circumstances. This is wat you get! Bam!
