Last 2 Projects

Last 2 projects. The first is based on the short story "The Outsider" by H.P. Lovecraft. I would suggest reading it, very interesting story.

The second is an illustration meant for a science magazine, double page spread. It would specifically accompany an article about planetary ecosynthesis, or terraforming.

Some sketches

Who is that man? ...and WHAT IS HE DOING?

Working on two projects - one is based in science, the other on a short story. These are in the 'block in' phase, hence they are VERY rough. I'll post more details and pictures later. You can see how terrible my hand writing is.

Here is the current state of some pancakes I'm painting. Originally I was going to really render these, but I started to like the more roughly painted look and am leaning more towards leaving it like that. I like that it has a softer look to it, similar to some vintage illustrations. I didn't see too much point in really getting super detailed. Also, guessing that it would be shrunk down a bit, small details would just be lost and look complicated.

Detail of Current Painting

Here is the same piece, a detail of something I was working on today. Hopefully I can get this printed full size, otherwise half of what I'm doing will be lost in reduction. Getting to "utilize" my imagination a lot with this piece, but it's really fun, and time consuming. About 32 hours until this has to be printed :-\

2 projects in Progress

My last post was gobbled up by some sort of hungry blog post monster, so here it is again.

Two current projects:
This is one color study/mock up for a food illustration. I chose to pursue a vintage sort of magazine advertisement. I'm working on custom type for the brand, as well as a logo for the company.

This is an editorial piece based on a cliche...when more is revealed can you guess which one?
