What I'm working on
I have mixed feelings about this illustration. I was trying to stretch, branch off, do something different. I think the drawing itself turned out ... eh, OK. It's the execution that leaves much to be desired. Oh well, failure means that at least I tried. Next time, I'll go for more of a surreal painterly effect, instead of a hard-lined cartoon.
This illustration was for a story about extreme athletes. For these people, a 10k run — like the one I plan to do next month — is more like a warmup. An extreme athlete will run 750 miles, and do it for 17 days straight (45 miles per day). Is that crazy or what?
In other news: while I'm waiting approval on my sketches for Ron, I've accepted a small assignment from a children's magazine.
