That is the question asked by a quiz page in the Oct/Nov issue of Girls Life Magazine. Consider wisely.
Are you:

For a visual accompaniment to these varying degrees of honesty, consider the following:

My illustration! In stores now. :)

Two more notes:

1. Tonight is the final Baltimonster closing party! 9 pm tonight! Free admission! A bunch of bands! Costume party! Cool art! Next door to Windup Space, 14 North Ave., Baltimore, MD 21201! Be there!

2. I will be gone for 2 weeks, starting this saturday! I'm going home for a few days, and then skipping off to london next Wednesday for a vacation with my aunt, uncle, and cousins! My first time out of the country. :) (except Canada, which doesn't really count...) Jolly good!

Have a great weekend, everybody!

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's... illustrations! In a magazine! In AirTran planes! A couple of my illustrations were in the September issue of Air Tran GO! magazine. They were for an article on the changing trends towards more casual clothes in business dress. (Appropriately titled "Changing of the Garb")

My art director Shane Lutjens designed the layout really nicely, and I was fortunate enough to get a copy of the pdf from him. I'll also have another illustration and spot in the December issue. Woo!

Here's the opening layout:

And here's the individual illustration and spot:

A final note:
I've noticed that ALL the illustrations I've posted up on my blog recently use at least one (usually more) of the colors of my blog. I guess I just see the world in shades of blue-green and orange-red. :)

Baltimonster invasion!

So today was the opening of "Pain of Being Dead 2: Baltimonster!" gallery show at the Echo, right next to The Windup at 14 North Ave., Baltimore. I'm in the show, as well as a ton of other people (including a host of talented locals from my link sidebar like Sam Bosma, Andrea Kalfas, Jimmy Giegerich, Daniel Krall, and Brian Ralph) and there's about 150 pieces total! Monstrous!

Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to the opening today, but the show goes on until the big closing costume party on October 24th which I am planning on attending. To see more about it, visit the Baltimonster myspace and come check it out sometime! What's not to love about Baltimore and monsters?

Sam and I were originally going to make a diptych together called "Lumberjack and Lumberjane in the Forest of 1000 Monsters" (an idea which I still think will be awesome...) but we had to save that for another day when we have more time to work with. Instead, I had to think of something else. Monsters have never been my particular specialty, but boy can I bust out ladies! Voila!

It's called "Catch of the Day" and I'm selling 50 high quality archival prints of it for $40 each. If anyone is interested, shoot me an email!

I've also been working on some magazine stuff, which I'll be posting next, and I'm in the process of figuring out my comic for the upcoming Popgun anthology. I'm thinking it might be a background story for the Gardener from my Millionaire series. We'll see!
