New Project for Self Promotion

I’ve had this idea for awhile to do something about child molest and abduction.  There’s so much of it going on, the more aware we are, hopefully, the less it will occur.

I started out with some sketches and doodles.  In the first sketch I had the little girl with her back to the viewer while the shadow lurked behind.  I showed it to a couple of friends whose first impression was that it looked like a little girl being pushed by her father on the swings.  After a couple of adjustments I ended up with this final sketch of her looking over her shoulder.  It seemed much more effective.

First and second sketches.

I did a couple of color sketches to capture the mood and the final appears below.

color sketches one and two.

The Red Bird

About a year ago I was approached by Charles Hively at 3×3 and invited to advertise in this year’s Illustration directory.  To me, since it is an invitation only directory and features some of the best illustrators in the business,it was a hard invitation to turn down.  The directory features only one illustration per artist so I agreed to allow Charles to choose from my portfolio which image he felt would best represent me.  This is the one he chose

You can see the entire directory at…..
