Old West Week at Ten Paces!

I've been drawing like a lunatic all week on what seems like a million projects, all of which I can't post on here yet (WHICH IS KILLING ME!). But luckily, this week's theme at Ten Paces and Draw was Old West, my very favorite thing. A serious morale-booster! So I pulled out the stops as best I could. Party on, Garth.

Woman to Woman Magazine

Look! My copy of Woman to Woman Magazine finally showed up! I did a little spot illustration for them back in December.

There it is.

Here is the original that I sent them:

and here is the scanned tearsheet.

It's all very exciting!

Sketch Sunday

The other day I hung out in Barnes and Noble all day so I could read Tina Fey's book, and also draw a bunch of dreamy wood-paneled cars.

Today I did this:

And also I listened to this a lot:

Ten Paces and Draw Kicks Off!

This is a piece I painted that was conceived and sketched by Erica Sirotich for our new illustration-swap blog Ten Paces and Draw! My new roommate Alyssa Nassner and I had been talking a while about how we wanted to start an illustration/collaboration blog where we could do some work together, keep our hands busy, and also post some stuff that gets us psyched about illustration. So we roped in Isaac Orloff and Erica and just went for it. That explains my mysterious desk portrait post from the other day, as well.

This is just the first week, officially, which the theme was 'Under The Sea.' See the website for my sketch (a hammerhead shark with maracas!) that Isaac took to final. After we get a few weeks under our belt we'll be inviting other illustrators for guest posts. I am so stoked. We're still tweaking a bunch of things, and learning as we go on it, but as far as this week goes, I think we really started off with a bang. Next week will be even better.

Holy Typesettin' Batman!

Made this for my friend Laura's political organization. Their last flyer wasn't hip enough, apparently, and for whatever reason I was the next best thing. But it was fun to draw city hall!
