Things in progress

Is it bad that I haven't posted a finish in a while? Sigh... I guess banking, therapy, and accordion check-ups take precedence sometimes. Everything I've just posted is unfinished. The valentine is going to get a bit more slick, a little cleaner, but I like where it's going.

Image number 2: Jenna, it's a bit rough still, but how do you feel about it? Looking at it now, I think I may have to go back to the drawing board... It seemed so great the last time I looked at it but now I'm not really feeling it.(The girls at the bottom are just character sketches, unrelated)

The last two are development sketches for a personal piece I'm working on. Lots of erasing happened. The kid looks like this boy from my 2nd grade class. His name was Pierre and he had a sister named Clarice. Clarice was always a very shy, sweet girl, and quite pretty as well. Pierre was an average 7-year-old boy; playful, annoying. Then their dad up and moved the whole family to Trinidad. They came back for fifth grade and Pierre was different with a capital D. He was all super composed and well-spoken... He conducted himself with a formality that is disarming for any young person, let alone a fifth grader. It was weird. I guess that's just how they roll in Trinidad.

Love Dangerously

Here's hoping everyone's having a completely awesome Valentine's Day! I feel as if I say this every year, but whatever: All of you who are bitter and dateless, GET OVER IT! I have been single more often than not on Valentine's, but I still have fun no matter what. I see it as a chance to celebrate how much I love my friends and family- and to make silly Valentines and heart-shaped food.

I'm thinking about polishing this one up and making it into a card design or portfolio piece. Possible captions for the inside include:

You're in my sights!
Love hurts!
Love Dangerously
This Valentine's Day I promise you Pussy Galore!

I welcome any other suggestions y'all might have.

Ah, okay, here's a better scan. Also, the edits have been made, so it's officially done.

CVS Visions Draft 1

My latest assignment is the cover for CVS's internal publication, Visions. Like the waterskiing businessmen, this is atypical for me, but I did enjoy doing it. I will have to change a couple of things before it's finished: The dude needs a lab coat, and the labels on the prescription bottles will have more detail added. I do not like this scan, though. The colors got really acidic.
