Gary Shandling

Here's an old one I did of Gary Shandling I found lying around my mess of a studio.
It's probably from the early 90's and it's ink-wash.

Illustrators beware

This was an illustration I did in Illustrator a while back for a design company advertising 3 new cell phones. I used a curved perspective, which has it's own curvelinear logic. However, whoever worked on it in post-production didn't seem to grasp this concept as they "corrected" my illustration by making the line on the corner of the building more straight than curved. The line of the pole should match the line of the building to make sense in space. Instead it looks amaturish.
Also, the lines of a Movie Marque should also follow this logic and the letters ideally should be on top of them, not in-between them. It's embarrasing to show the second one, even though this is the one that was published.
What can you do? As an illustrator, apparently nothing.

Laurence Fishburne sketches

These are two of four sketches of Laurence Fishburne for my new commissioned painting for "Rumours" located at 55th & 8th ave. Appatently he frequents the place a lot, so they wanted one of him to hang on the walls.

Sarah Silverman

Here's the final Sarah Silverman painting along with the origianl sketch. It's acrylic on wood with a little bit of colored pencil. Thanks to Fred Harper for letting me use his large-format scanner.
This painting will be hanging at "Faces and Names"- 159 w. 54th St. between 6th & 7th Ave. from now until the end of time.
