Next month I will be participating in the first annual Infusion Art Artfest in Beavercreek, Ohio where I will be showing off some of my artwork and peddling my wares. I also just wrapped up a t-shirt design for an art endowment called Infusion Art to be sold at the event. While brainstorming ideas I started doing research on art goddesses and came across a wikipedia entry for a Benzaiten and thought it would be a perfect visual way to not only represent an artist but depict various different art techniques and tools.

Been awhile and wanted to get back in the habit of posting to my blog about stuff I'm working on / have worked on. Earlier last year I was asked to contribute sketch cards for a Ghostbusters set being released by Cryptozoic that would be coming out around the time of the new movie that just opened this past weekend. So here's what I came up with....I had a lot of fun with these and they were more challenging then the Star Wars stuff because there wasn't as many characters to choose from...as you can tell I liked Slimer a lot as a kid as well as the Terror Dogs. It was always the ghosts and their designs that stood out for me....

Earlier this year I was contacted by Josh Goldman of Rad Girlfriend Records to work on art for an upcoming Raging Nathans / Nobodys split 7". It was great timing because I had been wanting to work on some album art again and had worked with RGR before on previous album art for the Raging Nathans and also another band, robthebank.

A lot of the times, people only see the last step in a job - the final piece. But the hours and hours of sketching, false starts, just kind of get lost along the way and left in sketchbooks and stuffed in drawers. You'll notice that for the most part I sketch using non-photo blue and indigo blue pencils - Prismacolor Berol Verithins. Here's a little sampling of some from over the years.....

Well, my last post was about my first freelance job and this one is about my latest. As I talked about in an earlier post, since 2011 I've been creating posters for Joe's Barbershop Chicago for various events they put on. Every year he has dates for Hangover Shaves Sundays which includes either a haircut or shave, food, beer, and music. Here's the sketch I came up with after brainstorming with Joe and also the final piece.
