Sacred and Profane

So the bad news is, my hours got cut at my day job recently. The good news is that almost immediately after I was swamped with a rush of paying freelance illustration projects, something I was hoping to do more of anyway! Here are a couple of recent jobs, both with religious (or pseudo-religious) themes.

First (above) is the cover for a satirical novel by my old pal Tom Lucas called "Leather to the Corinthians," which features, among much else, a post-apocalyptic battle between fast food mascot-inspired leaders. I'd explain, but I wouldn't do it justice, you'll just have to read it yourself when it comes out!

The other is a cover for an upcoming issue of Aaron Trudgeon's ongoing Gospel comic book series, illustrated by long-time self-published cartoonist Larry Blake. Aaron was nice enough to give me a lot of latitude on the art. I've always wanted to draw an Annunciation scene, and I'm pretty sure that's an accurate depiction of H-E-Double-Hockeysticks on the bottom there.

I know I shouldn't mix church and state, but besides those covers, I was hired to draw a number of cartoons up on the website of Politipets USA, which offers partisan pet accessories that'll let everyone at the dog park know how your pooch will be voting in November. Be sure to scroll thru all five of the cartoons, and maybe order a leash or two.

Another swipe at the administration via Photoshop collage. I admit this was inspired at first by Karen Pence's hairdo, but the rest fell into place, as things often do with parody pieces like this. It helps if you know the poster to the 1986 Jonathan Demme movie first, of course.

Some photos

All shot with my aging iPhone. The DSLR is not quite as handy.

Somewhere in Time

...on page 58, actually, of the August 29, 2016 issue of Time magazine. That's where there's a small photo of the Little Library I painted, the one in front of the Hatch Art gallery! So that's a first.
