Since 2007 I have illustrated many many covers for the Free Press Houston. I was asked to illustrate the August cover BUT unfortunately there was a short deadline. I was very happy that there was already an idea or I think the art would have suffered. I seem to spend more time than I like on brainstorming and concept. I was given a list of characters and I was able to collage everything together in time.
FInally, I’m finishing up this big painting in the Montrose area. This is the last time I use paint on DEEP HEAVY textured brick. It takes a great amount of time just to paint a solid color in all the crevices of one single brick. Completing the entire painting will be a challenge compared to flatter surfaces I have painted on in the past. Once I finished the paint areas I will finally be able to move to aerosol.
I just found out that I was nominated for Best Poster Artist for FPH’s Sammy Awards. Thanks Sammy
I had a mention in the month’s Papercity Houston.
I am still trying to track down a copy of this months issue. Thanks to Kirsten Ufer for the photo!
