for anyone here.

well, i suppose that these posts are indirectly written to myself, but here it is. i recently noticed that Bittersweet Harvest has featured my recent Meeting of Important People poster on there blog, with some kind words about my drawings (which i do greatly appreciate). also, i recently accepted a position with Excel Sportswear, an apparel design company close to where i live. i'm only four days in and it has certainly been slightly frustrating tinkering with digital manipulation of line and such, but today i feel i started making headway. the art director, dan mcmanus is a savannah college of art and design alum, who has put his faith in me and i am doing my best to not let him down. my first assignment there was to create a sketch for a jetski rental business that portrayed a voluptuous hard nippled blonde carving the waters on a yamaha skidoo. since then, i have been battling corel draw x3 and adobe illustrator to trace mechanical objects, such as buildings and cars. i do feel extremely fortunate that this company has asked me to be apart of their success and am doing my best to adapt and produce at a quick pace. all of the artists there have been very pleasant to be around and are very good at what they do; i hope they keep me aboard. anyhow, i am way behind on finishing the bookcase for Beginning with Books, here is an update on my painting thus far. that should be enough for now.

meeting of important people poster

this is another poster i threw together for meeting of important people. took this old clown sketch and added some other elements to it with the hat and hair. i wanted to make it look more polished and simple than chaotic.
