Pete & Agnieszka

Two more of my swell friends: Pete and Agnieszka (pronounced the best you can say it). I'm really happy with both of these, but especially Pete's. Agnieszka's is nice, but I don't prefer the portrait style of it, that frog costume was too tempting not to draw though.

Alex & Lindsy

I've been playing around with a couple of new techniques in Illustrator/Photoshop. The one on the right is my first attempt, while the one on the left is the second (yep, backwards). I think it's progressing pretty well, I'll probably do a few more of these so check back soon.

¡El día del toro!

This is a piece I was invited to do by for their weekly artist series. The only stipulation was that I pick a topic relating to sports and come up with my own commentary. This was all hand-drawn in Adobe Illustrator with the exception of the background, which was a manipulation of a photo I took of some grungy paper.

Here is the blurb on the Web site:
Bullfighting has been in practice for over two millennia. D
uring the 2010 Festival of Saint Isidro at the Plaza de Toros las Ventas bullring a matador, Julio Aparicio, was gored through his throat only to have the six inch tip of the bull's horn erupt through his mouth like a hellish piston.

This cruel sport exists today only because of tradition. A game devised to taunt, humiliate, and murder the animal, bringing to light the most barbaric and primordial urges of humankind. Luckily, Aparicio survived this encounter, but unfortunately the bull was quickly disposed of. Regardless, that day was a day of justice for the bulls and May 21, 2010 should forever be known as: ¡El
día del toro!

New Piece for

Here's a new illustration piece for You can view the piece directly here.

This is based off of the story of the little league father/coach that punched his child in the face after he was ejected from a game. It's really baffling that this would happen, especially right out in the open. The father was arrested and spent one night in jail. I don't know if he was wearing cut-off jean shorts or not, but it definitely adds to the drama!
