Above is my "Mother Nature" painting, created for Running with Paintbrushes, a collective blog with Scott Murphy and Owen Weber. It was for an assignment given to us by Dennis Nolan, a fabulous illustrator and former professor of ours from the Hartford Art School. Below is a more recent illustration created for the ArtOrder Challenge titled "Rust", where we had to illustrate the quote "A sword, a spade, and a thought should never be allowed to rust" - James Stephens. This illustration is also on the collective blog - go check it out to see the fantastical creations of my cronies.

I thought I'd post some little drawings I did a while back as holiday gifts for friends. They were lots of fun to do - quick, satisfying, and silly. Sometimes it's important to break away from the (more) serious illustration work that I usually focus on, and just play. These don't necessarily belong in my portfolio, but I think it's nice to share these sorts of things (click to enlarge images)
