My first shot at animation! Made over the weekend using Adobe Illustrator. I originally intended to highlight a caricature of Carlos Di Sarli that I hadn’t been able to find a use for, but I ended up using just his silhouette. Its really any amazing feeling seeing one’s artwork come to life 🙂

Spec work from a while back.
The second of my series of tango composer illustrations. The final product is scaled down to postcard dimensions.
In honor of my upcoming trip to Naples, I decided to design and illustrate a new postcard. The Mano Cornuto (Horned Hand) is an ancient good luck sign, the original “Rock On!” gesture, and is still very common in Naples, especially as a charm or pendant.
As usual, I started out with a simple scanned line drawing — in this case, I went with a more line-heavy, woodcut style to match the theme. When I colored it in photoshop, I offset the registration of the color layers to give the impression of vintage-style lithography.
Imogen, my first foray into the work of pinup illustration, never seemed quite finished. At the time I was trying to go for a more minimalist, line-oriented piece, but I found the other night that adding a little bit of color made a world of difference. Sparkley stars also helped.
