This portrait is representative of a set of 6 pencil renderings I was commissioned to restore. The original portraits were well over 150 years old. Just reproducing them was a major undertaking. The art boards were literally falling apart with pieces missing and the owner wanted the originals returned. I carefully re-shot them under natural light as they were too big and too delicate to scan. Many required the addition of highlights and shadows since the pencil renderings had been smudged over years pf handling and several were severely water stained as well.

The original photo, besides being cut, wrinkled, and scraped was also underexposed. I digitally aligned the parts, retouched the seam, removed the wrinkles and scrapes, then adjusted the highlights and shadows to enhance the players features.

Designed for my brother-in-law, this logo adorns his tractor/trailer. The pinstripes encompass the sleeper and dromedary box as well as the fenders. The teal and deep red were his color choices.

Individual leaves were reshaped as needed, a global shadow applied and then laid on top of the lettering. The vines were hand drawn using a 12pt hard brush with the pillow embossing feature. I found the butterflies through a free source and extracted them from their backgrounds. The forest behind the running text is a photo of my own woods.

I grew and prepared the gourd using natural oils for the finish. The bear ******** and portrait illustrations were wood burned in a crosshatch pattern into the surface. The interior of the gourd is lined in leather with rabbit fur trim with a real bear tooth embellishment.

The inspiration for this piece came from the young son of a friend of mine as we were making pictures out of clouds. This photo montage consisted of separate photos of the background, the boy, a zebra and a black and white tree illustration. I extracted only the white from the zebra and used the liquify and smudge tools to blend it into the clouds. The texture on the tree was sampled from the fence posts and applied to the tree.

If I could I'd "kudo" this twice.

I love the subtle cloud zebra in the sky. Genuis!

This piece was created wholly in Adobe Illustrator. Every element of the lipstick, tube and lid are individual shapes laid on top of each other with gradient colors blended to simulate the metal and lipstick.

This was a exercise in contrasts. The tire jump background was a photo from which I erased another dog, added more orange fencing to fill in the background and then overlaid the black and white illustration. The illustration was drawn in Photoshop with a 2pt. brush. The dogs eyes were painted in Photoshop as well.
