The Nightman Cometh: Drawing

I've been planning on doing an It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia illustration for a while now and here's the final drawing. The image is based on the episode 'The Nightman Cometh' where the gang puts on a play that was written by the character Charlie. I borrowed the composition from movie poster legend Drew Struzan, specifically his illustration for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. The play put on in the show is very makeshift and unprofessional so I thought it would be humorous to paint an advertising poster for it that showed it as this big budget and very epic performance, when in reality preschoolers have put on better plays. I plan to print out the drawing and do the final painting in oils so stay tuned for that.

The 150/150 show

My Snow Serpent piece is going to be a part of the "150/150" exhibit at the Philadelphia Sketch Club running from July 23rd to August 14th. The reception is this Sunday from 2-4pm. If you are in the area I encourage you to check it out, it should be lots of fun.

Gotta Have a Hook Challenge: Detailed Drawing

This was done for Jon Schidehette's latest Art Order challenge "Gotta Have a Hook". The winner will have their piece published by Wizards as if it were commissioned from them right from the start.

It's been a lot of fun watching the progression of all of the other entries and it's put me in a competitive mode that I think has really helped push me to do the best I can. Keep an Eye out for the finished painting.
