This is a poster I had tons of fun working on. I try to bring together most of my work in the computer. I love the freedom gained by freehand sketching, but many of the effects that really bring out a drawing are available through tinkering in photoshop and illustrator. I am also super excited about this show. Check her out if you would like to share this excitement.

This was for an all local show in the hub city. The man pictured here came from the 1974 yearbook which is an awesome artifact I salvaged from one of the many thrift stores found here. This year in review featured an article on the state of the elderly. There is a beautiful black and white picture depicting an old man sitting despondently in a dark room. His hair is mussed, an embarrassment that makes this dreary scene even more depressing. Abandonment is depressing. Personally I plan to drink myself to death if it ever gets to this point. Whiskey makes the best medicine.
Believe it or not, this is a sketch of Picasso. I really wish I had more time for this one. I forced myself to make something while in an artistic slump. The results are decent, and I got to play with halftones. So I shouldn't complain.
