So, it's been a really, really, REALLY long time since I've posted. My show in ABQ went off beautifully, and it's been a whirlwind of events ever since. Between packing up my life in NJ, driving across the country (and breaking down in Louisiana!), moving into my new home in NM, and starting my new life as a full-time freelance artist -- things have been a little, hectic... to say the least. But I want to get back into things, into the illustrator's hat. I've been working steadily, which is a blessing, but I miss my blog and the new things it's always inspired. I miss being involved with Illustration Friday and SFG and all the others. So, I will be working hard to make the time to get back into it all.
I'll start with a sampling of my first freelance illustration project that was completed the NIGHT I ARRIVED in ABQ (so much for settling in). It was a very small, low budget project but fun none-the-less. This is for the cover of a promotional pamphlet for the Boys and Girls Club (not an actual book). I've included the sketch phase, the final drawing, and a mock-up of the cover. Enjoy!
