Illustration Friday: Train

Metro crossing the arroyo near Avenue 60 in Highland Park, Ca.

This is an version I created in the series of bridges for a show this past march. It came from a hike through the arroyo and just as we made our way to this vantage point the metro came through.This wasn't used in this way, in seeing the topic for the week, I wanted to share it with you.

Illustration Friday: Wild

Go Wild!!!

This is a sketch from the book I have been busy illustrating. Hope to get to show you the finals soon.

Into the Woods: backdrop painted

My brilliant friend Carole Kim and I tackled painting the backdrops yesterday.  She rocked the foreground foliage canopy and I painted the 10x20 forest backdrop.  I haven't painted on this scale in a while, and to do it all within a few hours was so fun. 

looking forward to seeing them hanging in the theater!

Illustration Friday:Urban

I pulled this one from the Autohomography archives.  Autohomography is a series that looks at my life story through houses I have lived in.  This was my most urban home, and I thought fit the topic for the week. This was my warehouse in dowtown Los Angeles in the late nineties until spring 2000. It housed myself a few artist friends, our dog, a gallery, live music, indie film premiers, a rubber fashion company.

Such a short life this space had, but so very many wonderful things happened here.

Illustration Friday: Egg

This Egg cottage is an idea for a theater set panel I am currently working on, the eggs will not remain in the final, but for now they were fun to include as I test out compositions.

This drawing is typical of my current working format, I draw traditionally, ink and colored pencil, then scan and manipulate.  I will include another version of the drawing that was a straight scan before I changed the composition.

Thank you for stopping by to see what I am up to!
