GATHERERS, another new one for SooJin Buzelli at PlanSponsor. This is for an article about how healthcare and retirement planning can work in unison.
I liked all my sketches for this, though, as usual, only one of them actually works for the prompt. It usually takes me a bit to really suss out the core of the article. There’s a balance that the working sketch strikes that none of the others do.
When these projects pop up, and I can more or less draw anything, as long as it relates back to the topic, I almost always try to exhaust whatever current topic my mind is focused on, before trying different subject matter. Last time it was knights, this time it was strange animals.
I usually get a lot of color advice from Kali, but she had a bigger hand in this one than usual. Pretty much steered the whole ship for a little while.
Here are three snippets of things I am currently drawing. Unfortunately they are all pieces in which showing any more would give the game away as to what they are for, so for now you’ll have to take the details.
They are all culled from my Instagram feed which you can find here, and if you’re not following it then gosh darn it, you’re missing out on all sorts of amazing pocket sized pictures of artwork, shoes i’ve bought, and my cat Audrey.
More art next week!
Mondo have been making awesome movie and TV posters for a hot minute now. You are probably familiar with them, not least because I’ve done a few this year and I won’t stop going on about it.
Anyhow, something they haven’t done until now is video-game posters, and when they asked me to illustrate something for one of the years most promising title, Insomniac Games Sunset Overdrive, of course I was going to say yes.
This will be available at San Diego Comic Con next week - follow Mondo on Twitter for details. I might have some to sell at a later date too…
this guy again,
just trying to push that last post doowwwnnnn
A sketch I did between finals. Don’t think I’ll ever finish it, so on to the sideblog it goes. B)

My Tor piece is out today! You can read Friends ‘Til the End by Bethany Neal HERE. This is the first time I’ve done a 100% digital illustration, I couldn’t get that slightly-transparent ghostliness with my usual methods but it’s always exciting when I’m able to try something new for a job. Thanks so much to AD Irene Gallo!
Have you been watching True Detective? If you’re in the UK then unless you are a no-good illegally-downloading lawbreaker then the answer will be ‘I have not, but I sure am excited about seeing it when it starts this weekend on Sky Atlantic’.
Well True Detective is GREAT, and here is a little editorial spot i did to accompany it’s launch. I promise the girl in the antlers will make more sense when you see it, but i was pretty happy with how this turned out.
For those of you without Sky, i recommend you take the law into your own hands and track down the five (of eight) currently aired episodes, if only for the staggering six minute tracking shot that concludes episode four. Amazing stuff.
