Last one, I promise.
Well, until next issue, at least.

Some of my recent pieces. The top three are contributor portraits for the September-October 2016 issue of In Touch magazine. The storm scene is for the second volume of children’s stories which will be published this Fall. The cartoony dude was a doodle that got out of control and became a full-blown illustration.

Aloof doodles can be sooooo uppity sometimes.
I realized I had never posted a subject photograph of any of the portraits I’ve shared with you guys, and, for all you knew, my finished illustrations could’ve looked nothing like the author I was illustrating. Well, I knew I needed to remedy that, so here you go…. a photo and a progress shot, along with the finished piece.
It’s like a 3-for-1 deal, and you didn’t even have to have a coupon!
This portrait will appear in the July-August 2016 issue of In Touch magazine.

I’m thinking it’s pretty much useless for me to try and deny that frequent and prolonged exposure to the art of Moebius during my formative years had a strong influence on me. He is constantly sneaking his way into my doodlage.
I’ve been too busy to scan, but not too busy to doodle (NEVER!), so I’ve got a huge backlog of doodles lying around on envelopes, napkins, random scraps of paper, etc. This is just a tiny sampling of the cranial miscellanea that has spilled out of my pen onto paper of late.
Hope you like them, because they like you. Especially that guy at the bottom. He likes you whole bunches. Whole big, sweaty bunches. His name is Dreyfus, and he’s seriously contemplating having your name tattooed across his forehead.
My latest set of contributor portraits for the magazine. The lady in the middle is also a co-worker, so I felt added pressure to nail it for fear she would ambush me ninja-style in the break room if I got it wrong.
