Page 17

Sleepy Hollow pg 17, 6.625x10.25", pencil, ink, digital

Here's a recent page from Sleepy Hollow book I'm doing. The horseman is just about to make his first appearance (other than the cover...ahem), and poor Mr. Crane is riding home alone through a dark forest. Every page seems to have something new for me to try.

Celebration of the Suds 2009

A small sampling of places my design appeared

Over the summer I got the job to do the poster for the Celebration for the Suds, a beer festival held in Atlantic City this past weekend. I was anxious to see how the piece would be utilized, and was excited to find out that it had been used for shirts, posters, and badges, and tickets used to vote for the attendees' choice drink. Shirts sold out on the first day, and all weekend I got to see people wearing the badges made from the illustration.

The promoter was awesome to work with, dressed appropriately in a bright green crushed velvet suit jacket, he had so many ideas that made the festival more than a party, but a gathering for brewers, distributors, and consumers. He was also nice enough to provide me with the sampling of material from above. We talked about getting a design together for next year's event, and I'm determined to blow him away with what I can come up with.

Below, the original poster.

LSH Sketch

For a while now I've been working on a comic book version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. This is a recent sketch that I really liked and wanted to share. I feel a bit out of my element doing a full length comic, but pages like this one let me settle in and really stretch out. I've learned a lot through the process, and thankfully the editor asked me to do a short story in the next collected book he's doing, so I can start a new project with a fresh perspective. Either way, I'm looking forward to this page.

This is a quick study for an upcoming piece, done while waiting on approval for sketches. Hrm.
