NOT A DOODLE: A Portrait of a Different Color… and Style

November 27, 2018

Was asked to take a different approach with this portrait. It’s going to be for an interview featured on the digital version of the In Touch magazine, and they wanted it to have a discernible technique difference from the portraits I do of the contributors for the printed version. So I thought “what the heck, have fun with it”.

Fun was indeed had. And they liked the end result. I was very pleased with the palette and the texture of the brushwork (hence the reason I included a detail of the finished piece). Hope to do some more in this style.

NOT A DOODLE: Baby Elephant Bye-bye

A co-worker of mine is moving all the way across the stinkin’ country. She loves elephants, so I did this piece for her as our creative department’s way of saying ‘farewell’. I wanted to capture a field journal type of mood, so I kept the pencil work somewhat loose and the watercolor washes simple and monochromatic.

Every month, I’ve been tasked with illustrating a question mark for an online article series entitled “The Ministry of Asking Questions”. It’s been a fun challenge approaching the same symbol from different angles each time.

Some closeups of four illustrations I finished last night for a client. It was a great project to work on, and I got to go all texturey and washy and inky, so you know I’m a happy little illustrator guy!

A piece painted digitally for an upcoming web article on the In Touch Ministries site. I love the realistic feel and creaminess of the paint in ArtRage.

NOT A DOODLE: Co-workers

Three of eight portrait illustrations I’m doing of some of my co-workers for an upcoming article in the December 2014 issue of In Touch magazine. I get all geeky over the cool layers of color and texture watercolors create, and the way that contrasts with the pen-and-ink line art.

Just me and my geetar!

My latest for In Touch magazine. It will appear in the February 2013 issue.

Pen-and-ink with watercolor washes. I’m really enjoying this technique, and keep looking for other ways to use it.
