Maybe they're bored.

Happy post-Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope you've all overcome your turkey or tofurkey hangovers, along with the pie, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and other goodness that family brings to the table. I'm glad to back at it in the studio, I've been wanting to do a nice bluegrass poster for the Windsor Folk Family since I got back from Pickathon. Here's the progress on the lino:
I finished the front cover for Liana Gabel's CD! Next up is the back cover, then we're going to print! Yay!
Thanksgiving, for me, means a lot of car travel to see family, and a lot of time to draw. I present to you: more anatomy and breakfast drawings! Wahoo!

Today was supposed to be just another day.

Here's a good sketchbook dump for y'all. I've been working on a series I call "anatomy and breakfast". These guys are the newest ones in the growing series. Eventually, I'd love to publish an artist book of this series. It started with me revisiting my old anatomy books to keep myself sharp by constantly drawing the figure, bones, muscles. It also helps me in my yoga practice, with a greater understanding of the muscles that I'm using. I have to insert type into everything, and I love breakfast. My favorite thing to do is treat myself at the diner around the corner from my house on a weekday. Behold:
This is my finished lumberjack illustration for Brady Dillsworth.
Type for the front cover of Miss Liana Gabel's album <3
You can now purchase this limited-edition screenprinted poster on Righteous Babe's website! They only have a few left, so when they're gone, THEY'RE GONE!

You're what happens when two substances collide, and by all accounts you really should have died.

Here's another Americana illustration that I'm working on for Brady Dillsworth.
Orange Glory Cafe's second location opens next week in the Times Square Building in Rochester. A painting for the new cafe :)
The Tweed Ride that I started organizing many moons ago turned three years old. Eighty six people came! What an honor. Thanks to everyone, especially to our official photographer, Joe Philipson, who took this great group photo.
This was my first time drawing the Righteous Babe logo. What an honor! This image is for the back of tee shirts and perhaps sweatshirts!
Another tee shirt design for Righteous Babe, from Ani's song "Splinter". Remember, as these months get colder, you can STILL always go outside! I'm so excited for the snow to fly and to be able to get on my cross country skis, I haven't talked about much else the past few days.
On the subject of winter and snow, I finished one of the illustrations for my friend Liana Gabel's album this week too!
