Happy Presidents Day from Mr. Precedent.
Revamped a piece that I did years ago for the Design for Obama book.
Creative Quarterly 33 Runner-Ups! The water tower piece, “Autumn Springs,” was done as part of my MFA (graduating in July!) and the deer head, “The New Hornographers,” was a cover done for the Dallas Observer and Houston Press.
Thanks to all the judges for the thumbs up!
More recent work, this time from art director Miche Ratto of the Miami New Times.
The story is about a controversial short-tempered drag queen who was murdered when answering the door at a friends house while not in drag.
It was really tough coming up with a concept that could cover all or most of the issues in the story so we ended up going a more general route and I snuck in a bit of the murder detail into the tear.
This also ran as the cover for the Broward Palm Beach New Times.
Catching up on some recent work form a few weeks back.
Fall Arts Guide cover for the River Front Times art directed by Tom Carlson.
A fun and simple one for the new season. Hello fall!
Work In Progress: Using the crap out of the stroke gradient tool in AI CS6 for some drag queen eye shadow.
Why I still have Illustrator CS4 installed - so I can experiment with dynamic drawing tools in Scriptographer like this.
Who will be the first in my “Page Masters” series of art director portraits? Hint: their name starts with a B.
Find out in July!
