  2. ~i am all over baltimore city this week~ news update:

    last week I finished my internship and this week my first cover illustration is out in the world, along with a collab with Alex for B magazine. (I did the background trees and the surrounding environment, Alex did all of the drawing and the central area) Huge thanks for Alex for helping me out immensely this summer and getting me in touch with some excellent people, thanks to the college issue AD Audrey Gatewood (and Baynard Woods), and thanks to the entire city paper crew for being great people to have my first real illo job with. 

    Included is the really rough color sketch for city paper & what both covers turned out like in real life. This was basically the best possible way to finish off my summer. ( ゚ゝ゚)

    Illustrator Alex Fine is divine, and like Divine the drag superstar, a staple in the Baltimore Arts. He’s our second interviewed artist to be obsessed with drawing hair. Whether it’s Lorde’s long locks or the purple sheen of a Raven’s feathers, it’s such a treat for the eyes. His clean and retro-inspired style is perfect for his hundreds of spot-on accurate portraits that have graced the covers of websites, magazines, and weekly papers across the US. Check out his website for the full client list. Grab yourself a cold Natty Boh and read on to see what Ray Jones had to ask the Rockabilly illustrator that never sleeps.

  5. So my favorite billboard in the city was taken down a few months ago (it looked like this), but it’s been replaced by the baltimore LED art billboard, which isn’t a bad fate at all. The official unveiling happens during Artscape, & I was invited to contribute a lil image for the countdown. if you’re in town around 8:45 the first night of artscape, then hopefully you and I can check this drawing out at ≈ 30ft.

  10. I’m interning with Alex Fine this summer, which is an awesome time that hopefully I can show you more of soon. until then, here’s a drawing of some 90s mom jeans I adopted a few weeks ago. this was also a pretty good test of Kyle T Webster’s new dry media brushes; the drybrush linework ones are killer.
