Im working on a really cool illustration right now about "investigating the new blackberry and i thought id post the sketch work...you know...just to keep things fresh. also will be sending out my first mailers this week which i am excited about - the whole sorting through magazines thing etc is such a nightmare. THERE ARE SO MANY PUBLICATIONS. thank god im style locked into a select few! (truth disguised as joke) anyway - i'll post the final as soon as i can - im painting it tomorrow. WOOT!

i recently did this illustration as a book review / commentary on the novel ishmael. first off, i REALLY liked the novel - even the very obvious ending. i thought alot about how i wanted to portray ishmael.
huge - but vulnerable. hulking. most importantly trapped - but not in a
conventional way - you see, obviously he understood how to be free and
how to save - yet he was still a captive. i tried to play with this
idea, extending the bars that confine him only to theparameters of his frame. so technically he's free - but obviously he's trapped.
