brought out the ol’ #Canson sketch pad today, new illustrations for an old project.. #shouldbedoingtaxes #OOPS
Went bouldering with a friend the other day, (Midwest Mountaineering guys, it’s free!) Couldn’t help myself, I had to make something out of the few crappy phone pics I got..hahaha. Feels good to get away from the screen..good stress reliever too.
Besides those nostalgic warm fuzzy’s you get in the sound quality, there’s nothing like seeing a really great collaboration happen between the musician and the album artist. Just wanted to give the highest of fives to Steve Doogan and Slater Design for their work with Little Green Cars on the album “Absolute Zero”. The illustrations represent the songs beautifully..and Slater put together a sort of mood-board showing their process which you don’t always see. Check it out here.
Trying out a new illustration technique. It starts as a heavy pencil sketch, real lead-y and dark… I scan it and play with levels in PS to try and keep those line stokes black. Nothing groundbreaking there, ha - but the process kind of reminded me of all those smudgy drawing days as a kid. Funfun.
M. Ward gettin’ me all misty eyed with this beautiful intro. Shewwt. Gotta learn the tabs on this.
simple and heartfelt.
