Illustration Friday: "Save"



Yul Brynner (Chris), The Magnificent Seven.

Chris: There's a job for six men, watching over a village, south of the border.
O'Reilly: How big's the opposition?
Chris: Thirty guns.
O'Reilly: I admire your notion of fair odds, mister.


Zach Franzen, proprietor of the Portland Studios company blog commissioned each of us to do a cowboy themed piece on a 4x6 card. Here's one of mine. Probably not a great likeness of Yul, but dang if time wouldn't allow. I've got a massive project going right now that's got a deadline Monday (was due today but I got it pushed off until Monday)

For your enjoyment:

I have looked at almost all of your posts now, and I must say that you truly inspire me. I am still in high school, and I have an interest in illustration and animation and to see your work and the things you have created, really encourages me to keep going!

Hello, i saw one of your pieces on the Portland Studio site of two kids sitting on the top of a hill (right corner) looking up at the nite sky and the moon...is that in a children's book? i wanted to buy it if so..or do you sell prints?
