ethnic variety

I recently was asked to provide illustration samples of different ethnic groups, or at least some ethnic variety, so I dug around in my old illustration folders to see what I could find. I hadn't seen these illustrations in a while- I did most of them 2 or more years ago.

Illustration Friday - Punchline

I don't know what these guys are, or what they're laughing at, but it must have had a pretty funny punchline.

Illustration Friday - Forgotten

True story:
My family took a trip to Taiwan when I was 10 years old (in 1981). I saw some awesome toy stores there, with some amazing toys straight from Japan. One time, when we were walking down the street in some small town, I stopped to look at some toys, then I looked up, and my family had moved on. I can't even begin to explain the panic feeling of being lost in a foreign country where no one speaks English (and I only know a few small phrases in Taiwanese- none of which would help in this situation). I think it was like 10-20 minutes before they found me again.

Illustration Friday - Wide

Here is my Illustration Friday dealy. This was truly the first thing to pop into my head when I read this week's topic. ;-) (Thanks to Alina Chau for helping me with the correct Chinese character usage.)

I FINALLY redesigned my website. I decided to go with html, instead of flashy flash animation, because I found out that Art Directors like to be able to print samples, and Flash is dicey with printing images... well if I was an actionscript wizard, maybe I would know how to make flash images printable, but that's beside the point.
There needs to be a few tweaks here and there (the bio section isn't finished, but I figure I can let that one slide for now).
so check it out:

3 girls at camp

Here's an illo I did for Oxford University Press, in the UK. This was for a French workbook. I'm pretty sure the final was around the size of a postage stamp.
Three girls at camp, all dressed the same.
I'm sure in context it makes perfect sense. ;-)

Illustration Friday - homage

I tried to do this in a 50s "Toot Whistle Plunk Boom" style, (wikipedia entry, on youtube)but I don't know how successful it is in that regard,
but my homage to Ward Kimball, nonetheless.

Early illustrations

Here's an illustration I did in 2002, I think. I believe this was one of the first pieces I did as a freelance illustrator. I remember it took me forever to finish. My style has evolved quite a bit in the last 6 years. I used to use photoshop a lot more. Nowadays I'm about 95% Adobe Illustrator. I'm planning on using more photoshop in the future.

here's an early Illustrator piece that I did for TV Guide, around the same time (2002 or 2003).

photoshop Lego spaceship

I took a picture of my son's Lego spaceship that he made, and added a background just for fun. He was pretty psyched.
