As of today, I’ve got three of these now. My ultimate goal is to create one for every major city I’ve been to (or have connected with in some sort of way); however, that is a lot of cities, so this may be an ongoing, years in the making type series. One at a time…one at a time. Also, I’m always adding things to the shop, so check it out http://society6.com/sketchbookjack #metropolis #illustrationFriday
I finally finished the commissioned portrait for Stephen Pikarsky (from All Keyed Up Media). He’s been a huge help to me in some personal projects and did the original score for the Island the Plough App (which is still, slowly, slowly happening). It was a lot of fun to do this project and it inspired me to do a series of them. This, being “The Composer,” I am hoping to also do “The Writer,” “The Dancer,” “The Singer,” and “The Painter” to sort of round out the various artist/creator profiles.
Now is your chance to get a SketchbookJack sketch of you, your mom, your dad, grandma, dog, tea kettle, teddy bear, gold fish, or maybe just leave it up to Jack. This is a rare opportunity to get a custom original for only $25 via the “The Island and the Plough”/”Captain and Crow’s ABCs” book publishing Kickstarter campaign. Not only will you get a custom sketch, but also a PDF version of the book of your choosing. Share the love: http://kck.st/1kDaMZ6
After whittling down from more than 600 entries, I have been featured in the Doodlers Anonymous Vol 3 coloring book. They are taking pre-orders at a reduced rate if you are interested in having great, pen and ink, hand drawn, one of a kind, drawings by an eclectic collection of great artists.
