The Ladies' Man

Here is an update to a piece I've already done, but am choosing to reformat into a more apparel related design. Typography needs still to be incorporated, but that takes a little bit o' time.

He is Derek X; the ladies' man. He likes very short walks on the beach, romantic and greasy cuddling, Oktoberfest, chocolate with his chocolate, and chicken with his women, with his chocolate.

Illustrator Ahoy

Finished a joke children's book cover, with no real intention of making it into print. But it does display some Adobe Illustrator prowess. I'll be doing more in the program to enhance the stockpile of vector images under my belt. Seems like they have more marketability than some other art, especially if one can showcase a good variety from that standpoint.

Added after post: The text could be more readable- I'm thinking at least a white stroke around the letters to separate from the similar value green behind it.

Keeping on track

Another addition to the sketch collection. I had to draw this vulgar little ______. More emotion couldn't have been expressed by the likes of even Anthony Hopkins. Silly soccer hooligans. Love 'em or get beaten outside in the parking lot.

There's still a pulse in this blog. ------w--------w------w--

I swear that I have been drawing frequently lately, and on a variety of fronts. Simple sketches, cartoon designs, observations, and even some ad/graphy type designs. It is simply that I have either a: not scanned them yet; b: not felt their worth for sketch a day to present in the fashion of a blog. I will, when given the want for scanning and uploading, present a bulk of stuff to make up for this travesty. This, however, is a photoshop collection of black and white faces done as quickly as I could do them. Most are done with a single stroke while varying its pressure. Its about an hour group.

Here is a sketch of the topiary, trying to focus on depth of value over distance. More abstract usage of shapes.
