It was a long a trying ride but I had a lot of fun doing it.  I’ve learned a lot from the process of making this book, so I can move on to the next project with more insight.  I hope it can bring a couple of smiles to faces.

City Prints 2015

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

The Composer

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.

L.A. Noir

I have started a few noir inspired posters and am thinking of doing one for each city in which I have lived or visited.  I probably can’t do everything I have visited, and probably no one wants a poster from half of those cities, so I’ll hit the big, fun, major ones.  But, I thought I’d start it off with L.A. as I have been for the past eight years and it seems deserving.  I’ll add them as prints to the shop as I get them done.
