One of the great benefits of social media is getting to meet and interact with other illustrators, designers and creative professionals. Once of the great benefits of being a shameless self-promoter is not being afraid to ask when you see a possible opportunity come along. And so thanks to my internet buddy Steven Russel Black I’m now a semi-regular guest artist on the new site EveryDayOriginal.com.
EveryDayOriginal’s goal is to bring small, one of kind works of art to collectors of all types by offering them at affordable prices. Nothing is priced over $500, and there are some amazing works there priced at half that cost.
Currently I have a few pieces up. My favorite, Dapper Dan, is still looking for his forever home.
I’m finally getting back into some long overdue commissions that piled up after the recent death of my father in January. We were very close and on top of taking care of his estate it was an emotional roller coaster that left no energy for anything but the bare necessities of life. Thankfully he always taught me that despite being in pain “life goes on”, and so in that spirit I’m hitting these overdue commissions. Hard. First up is Princess Leia Organa, sketched up for the daughter of a childhood friend. Below are some work-in-progress shots and a timelapse of the piece from my Instagram account.
I’m excited to announce that I now have phone cases available in the Society6 Shop. I’ve made a massive update to the page including new prints and 12 new phone case designs, available for iPhones, iPods and Galaxy S3/S4s. Check em’ out!
