I've been drawing with my kid a lot lately. She scribbles. i scribble. The pure joy a kid has dragging a crayon across a page is something to watch. They don't care about design, perspective, anatomy ... There's something to be learned there. Well here's her scribbles and my scribbles. She's just 20 months old.

finish with Text

Here's the image with Text attached. I punched up the colors in Photoshop, and did the layout in illustrator. The client usually sticks a bunch of other information on the poster, but I provide them a suggestion of what I would do with the type for the tile and author.


I hoped to show a little more of this process, but as my wife told me, "how do you have time to do a blog and that painting?" sorry Time got away from me. Here's the final painting. Its difficult to photograph wet oil paint. Even harder to throw a wet oil painting on a scanner. Any suggestions are welcome.

The client liked the drawing depicting the "leader" caesar better, so we're going with that. Pity because it would've been fun to paint the plume on that helmet. I guess I could go back later and paint the other one when I find more of that mythical "time" thing.

Here's the drawing. I blew it up to 11x17 and refined it a bit before I add color.

I'm working on posters for he Orlando Shakespeare Festival. Latest job is Julius Caesar. This particular version has a black Caesar in modern times. I'll eventually be painting these in oil, which I haven't done in awhile. You can monitor my progress here.
