Here is my second piece for this year's 300 Plates Show at Art Access Gallery. I described a bit about this show/fundraiser a bit ago when I posted November Pastures here. The show is coming up on Thursday night, May 14, 2015 and tickets are limited. Get tickets early to have a chance at tons of great work at reasonable rates and benefit a great cause at the same time. Click through to the 300 Plates show site here and I hope I will run into a few of you at the show.
Saturday afternoon marked the final upload of the art for the Cactus Hotel project. Here are a few more of my favorite pieces from the project in their final state. All final images were created in Photoshop using digital brushes and handmade texture over the top of the graphite drawings I posted about earlier.
Here's a little sneak peek of the final for the book I am working on called Cactus Hotel. Just a little full page of a roadrunner having a little lizard snack in the shade of a big Saguaro. A few more of the drawings were posted earlier, if you would like to have a look. I have been a bit busy the last week or two working on this project as well as a little thing for Barnes & Noble, which I will post in a few weeks when it hits the stores. It's nice to be busy again with nice illustration projects. I have a lot on the plate, but will try to post more regularly as the work progresses. Thanks for having a look.
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.
