A follow up to the Ally Cat graphics I did a while back, this was for an Easter  race. Fun to work on projects like this when there are no rules.

06 Coast Guard Illustration

November 14, 2016
illustration for the SC Bar, for an article about housing market.

Yet another illustration for the SC Bar magazine, this one was along side an article about a federal program for people having mortgage problems. The concept was all them and I had much fun researching this and playing with the textures and underwater shadows.

05 Divide the Land

November 8, 2016
ill_scb_plow_land

A editorial illustration for the SC Bar, this was about dividing co-owned land when some one dies: not so fun. They had the concept and I went with it. They wanted a patchwork type thing, like a blanket of sewn together patches. This used a lot of found textures and some plain old illustration.

04 Long Arm of the Law

November 8, 2016

Another SC Bar illustration, this one about the Long Arm Statute, kind of boring subject. They had a concept of a Stretch Armstrong character, but I could not pull it off as I wanted. I came up with this and we both thought it rocked.

03 Lucky Charms

November 8, 2016
SC Bar illustration, called Lucky Charms.

Created for the SC Bar, this article was about controversial things facing the state of SC as well as the nation. Originally they wanted a full on Lucky Charms box, but we backed away from that after a while, thinking it needed to me more serious.

01 Surf’s Up!

November 8, 2016
illustration for the SC Bar association magazine.

Illustration for the SC Bar magazine, this article is about the vast number of foreign businesses located in the crazy state of South Carolina. They had an idea for the concept and I went with it, and had much fun making this. I used both found textures and my own digital painting in this.

ill_scb_depo_serve

Another illustration for the SC Bar magazine, this article was about companies being requested to serve up witnesses who can best offer testimony. Illustrating people is always tough, and I feel I muddle though these always. This time, I used scanned textures from an old Life magazine to create my colors and textures.

ill_beach

My most recent illustration: this was about haw a few laws can result in a mountain of regulations. This is my best one created for them, I’d say. The texture, old map, lighting and shadows are all very pleasing.

ill_cols

Created for the SC Bar magazine, the direction was they wanted columns and crumbling base. I localized it to Columbia, SC with the skyline, and textures that come from out state house.

ill_cows

Another SC Bar illustration, this article was about eminent domain. The art director had a simple idea, that of a pasture being over run with road crews. I had great fun with the textures, colors and trying to tell a story.
