ILLUSTRATION

Art, in its many forms, has always been a big part of my life. And, of those, I have many favorite types. But I'd have to say my favorite is comic-styled illustration. I think mainly because it combines a few different, yet challenging, disciplines: creating, penciling, inking, and coloring/painting. And probably because the medium fired my imagination in a way that I’ve never forgotten. Here are a few of my faves that I'd like to share.

Illustration has always been an effective tool for me in conveying ideas as well as bringing them to life.

Here are a few of my personal favorites.

Tactical Advantage

The original of this was done as a 24" x 48" acrylic painting. What you see here is its vectorized conversion.

PURPLE REIGN

A tribute to Prince.

Hot Dog

Hot Dog was literally created overnight to help First Alert promote fire safety in both Walmart stores nationwide and within elementary and preschools. His popularity grew so fast, First Alert wanted to make a full-size costume for the character that would tour Walmart stores nationwide along side the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Spongebob Squarepants, Bob the Builder, and the Power Rangers.

 

After the national tour was completed, it was acknowledged that Hot Dog resonated highest with children and was not only highly successful in raising fire safety awareness, but also helped spike sales for smoke detectors and fire extinguishers as well.

And okay, so I have a few more favorites than I thought...

Elements of note: The red microwave that was in the beginning of Deadpool II, the nod to Ryan Reynold's role as the Green Lantern, 

a touch of Wolverine on the camel's saddle, and the Holy Grail that was in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
