Same client, different brain...

So, I got a call today from the client that had me do the "Brainguy," in yesterday's post, and asked if I could do a realistic brain also. Of course, she knew I do photorealistic work too. This isn't quite photoreal, but it is my first medical illustration ever.

I did the pencil work on a piece of tan mat board, figuring it would give me a nice base tone to work from. The colors and lettering were added digitally. This was another quick turnaround, and I did it in about 4 hours, start to finish.

I did this goofy little illustration for a corporate/pharmaceutical client yesterday. I was directed to make it quick and quirky, so it was a fun little job. It has something to do with how the brain receives auditory signals from the ears.

More art soon!

Weird Verification!

For the weekend, I'll leave with this strange little bit... In the previous post, I responded to some nice folks who were kind enough to visit and comment on my little endeavor here. When I signed in to post my response comment, here's the form I found. Keeping in mind my last name, check out the word verification "word":

Random or conspiracy...? Hmmm...

Have a nice weekend!

Buzzboy: Sidekicks Rule!

The latest comics project I've been working on is the brand new Buzzboy limited series, called "Sidekicks Rule!" Since I showed the cover image for Buzzboy: Sidekicks Rule! #1 last week, I figured some might be interested in seeing a preview of the interiors. "Buzzboy:Sidekicks Rule!" is a great way to introduce young readers to the magic of comics, and features all new stories, comic tutorials for kids of all ages & more! John Gallagher wrote and drew it, and I did the finishing inks (and colored some pages). Below is my favorite page:

Buzzboy: Sidekicks Rule! #1 by John Gallagher, Rich Faber, & Friends. Meet Buzzboy, the "World's Coolest Super Sidekick!" When the Earth's greatest adult heroes disappear, Buzzboy and his other sidekick buddies must keep the world safe from alien invaders, time-traveling ducks. and evil robot wiener-dogs!? "Buzzboy: Sidekicks Rule!" features all-new full-color fun, comic tutorials for kids of all ages, and more! Find out why the critics call Buzzboy "...One of the best independent superhero books!" Plus: A Fun, new Roboy Red adventure-- thermonuclear powered, boy robot fun! (I'll post some Roboy Red stuff soon!)

Wizard Weekend

If you're near Philadelphia this weekend, I'll be appearing at the Wizard World Philadelphia comic book convention. I'll be set up from Friday through Sunday, with my pal John Gallagher, at the Sky-Dog Press table in Artists Alley. For more info on the show, click here:

If you're in the area, please feel free to stop by our table. If you do, John and I will be happy to tell you all about Roboy Red, Buzzboy, and all the other cool things we work on. As an added bonus, you can also get this FREE(!) Buzzboy poster, drawn by our friend, Mike Wieringo, inked by me, and colored by Gallagher:

If you think this image looks cool here, you'll be blown away by how nice it is at 11" x 17"!

I hope to see you sometime this weekend!

Torre, Torre, Torre!

I did this drawing of Joe Torre last year, as a demo for my Drawing In Ink class at Delaware College of Art & Design, but was recently inspired to do a color version of it in Photoshop. Here's the inked version:

Below are some of the color studies I did. I still haven't figured out which one I like best, but I felt it was a good exercise in color harmony.

I'll probably be posting more stuff like this in the future, as time allows.
