CONFERENCE DOODLE: Circles, Grapevines, and a Texas-sized “Yeeeehaw!!!”

September 7, 2016


Attending the Circles Conference in Grapevine, Texas, for work, and they gave me a doodle pad.

A. Doodle. Pad.

Let the sheer joy and beauty of that statement sink in, fellow doodlers.

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.

portrait in progress2Portrait done

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.
