Pinup Studies

So, I've finally decided to leap into the illustration tradition of pinup art, which is both fun and intimidating. It would seem, that each illustrator has their own unique approach to a pinup illustration, creating a multitude of flavors within this "genre" of illustration. All you have to do is open a Playboy magazine from the 1960's to witness the pinup pluralism. It's interesting for me to see how each individual artist has made their stamp by way of problem solving through the pinup. I started asking myself, if push came to shove, how would I approach a pinup? Cool thing, my friend Bernardo Franca (who is an amazing artist by the way) asked for such an illustration! Now I get to find my voice within the pinup world, and I couldn't be more excited.

Here are a few facial studies. :-)

By the way, here's Bernardo's blog.

Cold Blooded Warriors

It feels like I'm developing more projects than I have time for. To me though, that's a good thing. I often find that it's better to work and develop multiple projects rather than to have just the one. It keeps ones eye sharp and helps inform the other projects one is working on in many ways. It's not an excuse to explore different styles. Honestly, I've never had much interest in that, or I should say, I don't enjoy letting a style become the directive for a project. These stories or ideas just pop up in my head and I draw them. Its really as simple as that. Such as this drawing series I'm developing for fun called "Cold Blooded Warriors". The idea came about at work, while I was taking a break between assignments. These two drawings are a work in progress, but hopefully I'll have them finished soon.
