Sketches to Finish

I came across these scans of sketches for an illustration I did some years back about police corruption and the treatment of prostitutes by police for Washington City Paper, art directed by Jandos Rothstein. This will give you some idea of my process of exploring an idea or subject. The finished illustration is below. It was created using techniques I learned from a video of a demo by Marshall Arisman.


Some Of My Very Earliest Photoshop Work

These pieces, or variations of a piece are some of my earliest explorations into Photoshop. I think I was using PS 3 or 2.5 at this point. I first began using Photoshop in 1992 with a friend's computer and Photoshop 2.1. In addition to using Photoshop I was experimenting with a program called Studio 32. I liked using it in that I could create drips of paint and sort of emulate painting.

Work from 2000 and 2001

These are some pieces from 2000 and 2001. The head is just something of a doodle and the others are pieces I did as an ad to support a student magazine. I think I like the image of the boy on the dog alone over the whole thing. As for the writing, I always feel, after the fact that it is a little too emotion driven and needs polishing.
