Guess who is the featured artist in the June/July issue of the Growler Magazine? I’m very excited to be interviewed for this amazing craft beer magazine! Let’s hope this finally leads to a cover shot…Read about it here:

So, I’m now at crunch time for my self-help book illustration client. My deadline is 5/31 and I have quite a bit of work to do! I can happily say that every illustration is pencilled and all but inked…which leaves a ton of coloring to do.
That being said, I’ve given up on celebrating this holiday weekend with my beloved Rachael at the cabin in northern Minnesota. Instead I labor at my work station for the next three days.
Such is the price we pay for our art.
To make myself feel better, I’ll share some examples of what I’ve been working on…
I’ve made the decision to replay some of my favorite comic strips over the next two weeks. I’m calling it the ‘Best of Best In Show’ and will feature seven comics that will run from Wednesday May 22nd through Monday June 3rd to allow me to clear my plate just in time for my wedding. New ‘toons will resume on Wednesday June 5th, before anybody loses their mind. So, for the next couple of weeks sit back, drink a fine craft beer and re-enjoy my favorite ‘Best In Show’ adventures!
Today will be a lot of “3 Minutes To Happiness” book illustations. I’ve been sketching out the next group of scenarios for approval and will now get to lettering the b&w versions of the previous batch. Hopefully I’ll have approval and get to penciling the current scenarios this afternoon! Oh, and pencil two custom Matchbox car designs…*sigh*…Busy, busy, busy…;)
Here’s a look at some character concepts for the teen novel “The Apple Pirates” that I’ve been working on as well…
