I was commissioned to illustrate (and design) a wedding invite. The couple’s getting married at Ochre Court mansion in Newport, RI. It was also where the proposal was, so it’s pretty special to them and they wanted it on the invite. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out and they were very happy (which really is what counts, right?).
Hey– here’s a sort of image dump of highlights from the past few months of editorial illustrations. All of them are for the Newport Mercury Full Frontal article. I’ve just been busy with other freelance work and day job and (soon-to-be) 2 year old to post stuff regularly, but I’ll be better. Thanks for looking!
This month I’m part of a group of 40 artists for the Beautiful Forever show at Light Grey Art Lab (Minneapolis, MN) gallery.
Next Friday, March 22nd from 7pm-10pm, is our joint opening of two incredible shows Blowout and Beautiful Forever. The entire gallery will be filled with artwork made by tattoo artists, illustrators, designers, and lovers of tattoos. It will be a great combination of artwork to say the least!
Unlike real, painful, and permanent tattoos, the artwork of Beautiful Forever is not going to last forever! That’s right, Beautiful Forever embraces the ephemeral, flashy, and clever designs inherent in temporary tattoos. This exhibition will include the work of 40 amazing illustrators who have taken this challenge to create fun-loving tattoos of candy, animals, mer-mans, and more!
You will not only be able to view this awesome artwork, but wear it too! We will have a temporary tattoo station so you can apply your new tat here at the show. We look forward to sharing all of our rough, tough and inked up sleeves with you all!
You can purchase my piece (and all the other fantastic work) in temporary tattoo form at Light Grey Art Lab’s Store.
PS- I drew this last week and really spaced writing “’12″ on my signature instead of “’13.” Adoy.
This week I have the cover of the Mercury!
Glad the internet is still here. I haven’t posted in a bit, but plan on doing a large image dump post soon to show the stuff I’ve done the past month or so. As always, thanks for looking!
