It's a Deal- digital over graphite by Greg Newbold
Another spot for the "Secret of Grady House" fiction story for Boys' Life Magazine. This one falls at the end of the story as our young protagonist makes a deal to help old man Grady with his research. I enjoy doing hands and this one gave an opportunity to convey a bit of the story through gesture and the contrast between old and youthful hands. The hospital bracelet and the equipment in the background provide the setting. Sometimes just a few bits of information such as this are just enough to tell the story, so it's important not to gloss over these small but significant details.
I have been making art for as long as I can remember. These days I work in acrylic paint or Photoshop when creating illustrations for magazines, children's book publishers and advertising clients. I have even been given some cool awards for it. Lately, I am loving oil painting out of doors and for galleries.
