And here’s a costume ref concept from a fun project i’m crankin on right nowz – inked on the crappiest, bleediest paper you can imagine. woot only 98 more pages of it to use. :-/
Technically, the extra arms shouldn’t be … posed … but at this point i cant resist the chance to emote more hands.

Haven’t posted much here since mid december – trying to get the kinks worked out of my domino stack of social media updates to make life easier. Lots more to show very soon!

Well. this is exciting…

I illustrated and designed an album cover for Northern Spy Records. Release date is 29 October 2013
'Merles' DIGIPAK! boom!Northern Spy Records out of New York. Northern Spy is doing a digipak AND a limited edition vinyl run of 300 copies. The record is fantastic and the Northern Spy folks were truly a pleasure to work with. Can’t wait to see these in print!

Here are the sketches of the musicians. Everything done in inkwash and casein on 8.5 x 11″ grey cardstock. There are some traces of feint pink print underneath. Since these had to be very contained, and done very quickly, i printed my digital sketch onto the cardstock at 18% magenta (0,18,0,0) and then render directly on top of that. Big time saver. Once i finished painting these up, i fixed the nagging proportional and textural issues in Photoshop. But they are retained here for your amusement. Front cover mostly Photoshop.
