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: Even MORE Portraits, Part 2

April 7, 2015

Portraits. Textures. Portraits. Textures. Portraits. Textures.

I know, I’m getting repetitive. But, man, I love doing these.

NOT A DOODLE: Co-workers

September 9, 2014

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.

In the Presence of Enemies

June 8, 2011

Here’s my latest piece for In Touch magazine. The article is about the martyrdom of Stephen. Rather than show Stephen himself, or the angry crowd that stoned him to death, we felt it would have more impact to just show a single hand clutching a rock.

The piece was done in watercolor on illustration board. Below is a detail of the piece.

Raven for ArtRage! (Get it? Raven… Raving… hahahaha… I kill me sometimes!)

These guys from New Zealand have put together a great, low-cost painting program called ArtRage. In short, it ROCKS! Now, don’t get me wrong…it ain’t Painter X, but it also won’t cost you $429!

I’ve got the full program, which costs only 25 bucks, and I’ve already done several illustration projects using either ArtRage exclusively or an ArtRage/Photoshop combo. The above pictured illustration about Elijah is for a magazine article(hence the big honkin’ empty area under the ravens), and was done using ArtRage’s oils and pastels over a base sketch done in Photoshop.

You can also download the demo version for free, and still get a lot of goodies to play around with. Be sure and check it out.
