MORE favorites from the dogpound...
This boxer is from a pic, where "Fire" looks quite serious but the owner described to me a giant tongue usually hangs out and the eyes have an "A.D.D." look, in fact this is probly the only pic where the tongue isn't out..... I'm glad she was there to tell me that because the downside of working from a pic is the PERSONALITY sometimes doesn't translate. This was one of my faves of all time.
Here's some cats from pictures-it's smart to bring good pix-so much easier working from 8x10 prints than cell phone pix (which I don't do anymore) and these ladies were so nice and LOVED the cat-toons!

I've been pretty busy on some freelance illustration work for an Events/Promotion Co.
I'm very fortunate in that I get to draw most of the days and in this particular assignment I got to do @ 90% of what I wanted-using my own cartoon characters in a tropical poolside setting to be displayed in Starwoods Hotel in NY.
The finished artwork was then printed 8 FEET HIGH and ran the length or the room! DEFINITELY THE LARGEST I've ever seen my work PRINTED! The funnything is they asked for very "different" characters, so I threw a George Carlin-ish burned out stoner dude in their along with a goth girl, and they nixed the GIRL, not the stoner!
Hope I get more like this....
These are FUN!
