"Freaky Illustration"

The new issue of XFUNS came out this month which contains an eight page feature on me under the theme of "Freaky Illustration." If you haven't heard of XFUNS, it's a really cool bimonthly design/illustration magazine based in Taiwan. Check out their website, but you may to use an online translator, since it's written in Chinese and their English version page doesn't seem to be working. I'm not sure if it's available for sale in US bookstores, but copies can be bought from their website. This issue also features the work of Nicholas Di Genova (who did the cover), Ric Stultz, Dekore, and Kato5 among others. Here's a link to the interview (note: There are a few errors/oddly worded phrases in it due to it being translated), and here's what cover and the spreads look like:

So a few things have happened in the past month or so. First off, I won gold in the Richmond Illustrators Club Second Annual Juried show (Juried by Anita Kunz, Greg Swaringen, and Josh George). Second show, second time I won gold. I have a legacy to protect now. If you're unaware of the Richmond Illustrators Club, check em' out. They're up to some interesting things.

Also, I just finished going the cover for "The Deal Magazine." The idea behind the illo is that Japanese Pharmaceutical companies are taking over the US market, so what better way of showing that than using Godzilla.

Here's what they did with it:

About a week and half ago I did an illo for the cover of Inland Empire Weekly. They wanted an image depicting McCain's changing attitudes towards Bush.

And the final version:

Hey everyone, so this is my new blog! Please bear with as I figure this thing out and slowly begin to post new things.
