The Scarlet(?) Speedster

I did this one last year as a portrait assignment with Adobe Illustrator, but the colors weren't like this. I have to remember that I can't upload CMYK image on this thing. RGB only. Still, it looks pretty cool.
Of course, the actor portrayed is John Wesley Shipp from the late '80's TV series, "The Flash." It was one of my favorites.
I just noticed that I misspelled John's name on the piece. I'll have to take care of that before sending it out in my portfolio. Darn.
Update: Here's the correct color and name spelling. The Flash is copyright DC Comics.


I wouldn't say that this is a finished illustration, but I thought the toasty dragon was too cute not to share.

Look! Up in the sky!

This strange little guy is Snorkey. I was hired to create this image for the rear stabilizer of a private, home-made plane. My client provided a jpeg of the manic jester he liked and I made my client into the jester's scepter. The piece is entirely Adobe Illustrator.

First image to share!

Finally, after these last couple of weeks, I have something to post. I've been working on a children's book for a class project and I thought I would share both the final image of one page as well as the uncolored inks. Notice the change in the Dragon character. My brother pointed out that the original expression would be when the dragon notices the cow eating his house, but the cow has already started running away. So, I redrew the dragon to be smug and self-satisfied and replaced him with Photoshop. A little color later, you'd never know the change.
