Secret Lives of the Unemployed

Hey Everyone,

Sorry for the delayed write up on this one. Overtime at work, plus freelance, plus roommate-hunting completely wore out my ability to keep staring at computer screens. I've got some new stuff to post soon though, so--as always--hang tight!

This was a pretty quick and dirty assignment. I was approached to contribute to a serialized blog-form story about the lives of unemployed Brooklynites. It sounded like a fun project, maybe something I could get a bit more abstract with. I usually take my finals to color, so this was also a good opportunity to let my black-and-white ink work speak for itself.

The stylized water is influenced by the many tropical beach scenes I get to draw at work.

Here's a logo I created for Florida-based rock band Str8 Jacket.

Christmas Commission #2

Well, it's been a very fun and (sorta) relaxing holiday. Alas, it's time to get back in the game. I've got a few pieces to upload now, and a couple projects in the works now, so stay tuned for more updates!

Two years ago I drew a house for a man who worked across the street from me in Columbus. Here is the long awaited follow up to House #1. I usually draw straight into the computer with a Wacom tablet at work, so it's nice to get back into some ink and brush work.
