Six Illustrations

  1. I always enjoy art deco from Hollywood from the 1920's, very simple and direct lines that seems like a lost art in today world.

    2. Listen to Stan Getz's song Get Happy, a great jazz cover from the 1950's, as for adding the cigarette it was my way of mocking the fashion photography.

    The Tunnel is one of my favorite pieces, the detail in the hair took a long time but was worth it. I was thinking of cave dwelling and the female is Jenny Lewis a indie rock singer and child actor from Salute Your Shorts on Nickelodeon.

    These were work on after a break from the paintings in mid 2008. Most of art was done with Indian ink and a brush, a very long process which most cartoonist swear away from. The finer details were finished by a pen, on a 8 by 11 inch cardboard paper. I say this for the fact that the Indian ink would bleed onto the other side making it look that the sheet had the same quality as toliet paper.
