Illustration Friday: Book

It's been a good long time since I've ever posted to IF, a couple years maybe! I used to post every Friday back in the early days of my blog. Well, I'm pleased to make a contribution once again.

"Book" brought to mind this recent piece from Menagerie, the gryphon with the troll kids.

Troll Children with Gryphon. 

I'm sorry (but a little pleased?) to say that the first print run of Menagerie has just sold out but I just released a series of prints from the book.

Thanks for taking a look!

New work! New prints!

Finally! I've got a ton of new work to share.

All of these new pieces are from my 2012 sketchbook, Menagerie. Enjoy!

Note. Some are available as matted 8" x 10" prints (total size 11" x 14") others as both a decoratively matted 8" x 10" OR miniature. Some are only available as miniature. All sizes are noted and linked below.

There is also one special charity art print I hope you'll see at the bottom.

Thank you for supporting my work! To visit my shop and see everything that's available, prints and sketchbooks alike, you can visit here.

All proceeds from the sale of this print will be donated to
the World Wildlife Fund's Save Tigers Now campaign.

Over the course of reference gathering for this project
I came across a statistic that I couldn't ignore.

A hundred years ago there were 100,000 tigers in the wild.
Today there are as few as 3,200.

NOTE: Print appears without logo and text.

Indie Craft Parade

My sprawling set-up.

Once again the Indie Craft Parade has struck the heart of downtown Greenville, SC with a fierce ↓, ↘, → punch!! of a variety of handmade media. 

Whether felted things, ceramics things, drawings things, the third annual ICP gathered together some of the best working artists in the southeast.

As you might know, this event is my wife, Erin's largest yearly project. As such, in exchange for my name going on the sponsor list, I end up doing a lot of hand lettering and illustration for the event. 

Here's a look at some of newest work.

The Illustrated Elephant.

Oh gosh, and now it's spread to shirts.

Hey! A billboard.
(Alternate hand drawn text.)

I debuted the most new work to-date at this show. I think 10 new prints in all. I'll be making them available online this Friday, September 21st in my shop!

Here's a peek at what to expect.

Many new things. All creatures.

Imagine FX

Here's something that I've been really looking forward to seeing in print.

The first time my work has appeared in Imagine FX, the premier digital art magazine. I was in touch with them a while ago and I'm indescribably pleased to see this feature in the magazine.

A huge thanks to everyone involved, especially Beren!

Here's to the next one. I'd love to do a cover for you guys!

Man, it's been some time here! It's a shame to let a blog lie dormant. It's a blog for gosh's sake! These things are meant to be watered regularly and turned towards the sun!

The third quarter of this year has been packed with travel, conventions, speaking engagements, and client work. I've been slammed and this poor blog has been the main causality. Time to water.

I'll be back next week with a full blogging schedule: catching up on past engagements, new projects, and future work. Also, a better-late-than-never giveaway!

Until then here's a peek at some of the new work I debuted at the 3rd annual Indie Craft Parade.

New prints! I sold out of several but I'll be reprinting and listing on my shop.
