I have a few clients who ask me to do illustrations for their Flash websites. Above is the background I drew for a job I recently did for a Mexican restaurant website. The project required me to take a character that was already designed, and place it in different scenarios. Here are a few examples:

This was the first image I did for the client. It had been a while since I'd drawn a horse, but I was happy with the way this one turned out. This shot was placed into the background (above), and the character was animated using Flash, to appear as if he is moving from the background to the foreground.

The above is for the "About" page. the restaurant is called Agave Grille, so the guy is holding an agave plant.

I was asked to do a bunch of page markers featuring the sombrero head character. This one was for the "Events" page.

This one was for the "Newsletter" page.

This is a coyote that can be seen darting throughout the above background on the website. To see the rest of the illustrations, in color, and in context, click below:

All the illustrations on that website, with the exception of the sombrero guy sitting with the guitar and the logo, were drawn by me. Although I normally color my own work, the coloring was done by my client, who did an excellent job!

More soon!

Great Blog Rich! That coyote came out great! It's not a dog or a wolf, it's clearly a coyote!

Kick'n ass and taking names I see!

Hi Queen Tut,

Thanks for coming by, and for commenting. It's very nice of you to compliment my work. What about these speak to you? Just curious.

By the way, I'm a big Chaplin fan too! Check out my website,, and look at the "Other Illustrations" section. I have a brush and ink Chaplin piece there. I hope you like it!
