Couple of recent illustrations done for Rivet Magazine. The first was for a light hearted and humorous article titled "Mr. Right" that pulled a little inspiration from the movie Say Anything. The second was a "Libra" themed illo for the horoscope page.

Really great article I came across on the net. I wish more illustrators and artists thought this way...LINK - the actual article is about six posts'll need to scroll.

Pics from the show!

These are a few pictures from the show I was a part of a couple months ago. It took place in an old abandoned loft space that myself and a group of other artists reclaimed and used for the night. The entrance is about 3 feet tall which forces everyone to enter on their hands and knees...a unique and humbling experience. Many thanks to Karen and Jacob for hosting and organizing everything for the event!

Here's a really great slideshow that Karen put together from all the photos at the event too. Thanks Karen!

IF: Island

This is for the Illustration Friday "Island" topic. I actually used this for the "garden" topic a while back, but did a limited edition print series for it since then titled the GARDENER ON POTATO ISLAND. Here is the original message that accompanied the first one...
Funny how a word can transport you back in time when you really start thinking about it. My mom used to let me grow potato plants in jars on our window sills as a kid (bless her, cause they start to stink after awhile). They grow pretty quickly so I used to get really excited to look at them each day when I got home from school to see the progress. Then at night my mind would wander beyond the science of things and imagine the little people that showed up during the day to water the vines while I was away at school.

So this is the illustration I came up with after that thought...

Prints: signed and numbered (16x20 and 8x10) available through RAWTOASTDESIGN.
