I love mugshots and ID shots, somewhere I found a collection of ID shots of people who worked on the atomic bomb project in New Mexico in the 40s. This guy’s pic interested me, some research showed that he was German, emigrated to the US to work on the project. Later, he gave secrets to the Russians and spent some time in prison. The pic was hand colored, and composited with an old scan from a Life Magazine ad.

Dudes 3-4

These were done as an exercise, with mixed results. They started as pencil sketches, then traced in illustrator and finished out in pshop. I used both painted on textures and some stuff found online. Text added from a book I’m trying to read (as if these are the dude’s names), set in LetterMpress.

Creative Unblock 1

There’s this awesome podcast at The Jealous Curator, I listen to the artist interviews as soon as they download to my phone. The site owner wrote a book about creative blocks and how to get un-stuck, and her site spotlights 12 of them. I finally did one (the first one), a year later. My take was to draw some leaves, color them, photograph them and do some compositing in pshop. I’m pleased. I colored and scribbled and cut out and had fun. I did three more after this.

Stream of 2

I loved the type accident from my previous exercise, and wanted to stay with it. This was partially inspired by a podcast interview I heard of a very talented collage artist. This illustration uses ArtRage for the painting and layering, then Photoshop for some additional work. I’m digging this.
