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.

New portrait work of some of the contributing writers for In Touch magazine. Pen and ink with watercolor washes.

And, at this point in our relationship, do I even need to mention that I’m geeking out over the neat textures?

Britt Spencer, YOU ARE A GENIUS!

I only recently discovered the work of Britt Spencer, and instantly fell in love with his style and skills. As I’ve stated before in regards to McCay and Herriman, I’ve always been drawn to playful surrealism, and Britt nails it….with a sixteen penny nail!

The man’s ink work and bold watercolors give his work a richness and texture sorely missing in today’s illustration market dominated by slick, digitally dependent art.

Bravissimo, Britt!  Keep up the amazing work!
