Here is a flyer I did for a client of Bernadot Studios. I did a pretty rad comp with roots coming out of the bottom of the buildings, but my director told me that it looked too arty for the client.
JMP is a building company out in the Midwest that toted as being green and Eco-friendly. Coincidentally, they're also on of my father's competitors. Go figure, right blog?

for years I harbored a dark secret. I was not a pro at Adobe Illustrator. It has haunted me ever since graduation and ruined a few really positive job opportunities for me.
Thanks to Kristin Varner and the good folks at Noble Desktop, that is no longer the case! I strongly recomend this place if youre in the NYC area and need to bone up on your creative suite. They also offer tons of free seminars, 6 of which im signed up for next month with classes ranging from Intro to HTML to Advanced Fashion Retouching. Should be a blast
I just graduated from their 1 month Adobe Certified intensive Illustrator CS3 course and I have a strong working knowledge of the program now, so expect to see a lot of new vectors out of me in the coming months.
Here are some examples of exercises we had including one that I took some liberties with. (I hope I'm allowed to post this stuff)

Here's another Alex inspired drawing. I really like the way the sketch came out and I think it's going to turn into a finished piece. Nay, it SHALL turn into a finished piece. Maybe it will even go on some sort of shirt. I got hooked up with a fledgling young clothing company called MischEVEous that is geared toward marketing NYC artists. It's going to be a lot of fun because I get to make clothes that aren't trendy and lame
ie. 90's revival bullshit, Christian Audigear Ed Hardy bullshit.
The folks on top are Tim and Danielle. The bottom was inspired by my new chicken, Suki. What do you mean it comes off as really gay?!? You don't know anything about art, blog. yeah, now that I look at it more, that guys left shoulder is way off. it should be more toward the front of his body. Sometimes though, you have to break the laws of anatomy to draw a nipple. AND THAT'S THE MAGIC OF ILLUSTRATION! Cha cha cha!
