On Carrying a Sketchbook and Why You Should

There is a great series of articles written by storyboard artist Mark Kennedy about why you should be carrying a sketchbook with you. Read it; you'll like it.

Illustration Friday: Polar (Opposites)

Fortune is where your find it. Donald Trump and Mother Teresa  Illustration by Tony Sarrecchia

I took a little artistic liberty with the Illustration Friday word this week because I didn’t get this piece completed in time for last week. The funny thing is, the idea for Fortune popped into my head shortly after Penelope sent out the email. I procrastinated until this weeks email. It seemed like this was the second chance for this piece; after all, what better polar opposites than Donald Trump and Mother Teresa?

Fortune/Polar was done in Illustrator CS2 using Live Trace, the rectangle tool and the paintbrush.

As always, your comments are encouraged.

Illustration Friday: Green

I can relate well with poor old Harold. The pollen count here in Atlanta was over 5000 last week. I felt like I should suit up in a deep sea diving outfit before going outside.

This was done in Adobe Illustrator CS whilst enjoying the last days of Spring Break in Florida.
