Kashi, the Snow Leopard
posted by Chris Lyons
client: Rosamond Gifford Zoo, Syracuse NY
art director: Jennifer Wolfe, Jennifer Wolfe Design

Got a chance to draw this lovely animal as a donation to the Zoo's annual silent auction. This drawing took about a week, and I enjoyed every bit of it. The colors were especially challenging - that beautiful warm yellow fur within the longer mane - the kind of details I never really notice until I go about drawing them. And all for a good cause: a single giclee print (framed) sold for $700.

Marry Him!
posted by Lou Brooks
client: Atlantic Monthly
art director: Jason Treat

This was a full-page opener for a Lois Gottlieb feature about "settling" for marrying Mr. Good-Enough when it's probable that Mr. Right ain't gonna ever come along. You'd think there'd just be more of us great guys out there! I really enjoyed working with Jason. He had good strong ideas and, at the same time, was open to whatever road I might want to take. I wanted this piece to substantially offer the mood of a dark and melodramatic Doug Sirk movie, such as Magnificent Obsession or All That Heaven Allows.

39th NAACP Image Awards
posted by David Cowles
client: NAACP
art director: Me, basically

Here's the latest image I've done for the NAACP Image Awards, of honorees Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Ruby Dee and host D.L. Hughley. They had me ad some type the last minute, but I actually like how it worked with the art. As for the Art Director, I found myself a little cranky to work with.
