St. Vincent aka Annie Clark

I was sketching the upper left face and it started to remind me of St. Vincent, whose music I really dig, so I continued in that vein with a few more portraits based on photos of her.

Maserati's Blue Album

I drew this for Flagpole Magazine in 2006 but never colored it until now. The article covered highly anticipated local releases, so I designed a few "knockoff" album covers, including this one inspired by Weezer's Blue Album. Apologies to Maserati; I'm sure the likenesses are way off.

Sonic the Hedgehog circa 1928

I was going to participate in this group "art jam" with a different assigned subject to be posted each day the first week of January. But I quit after only one. Might revisit some of the topics later though. I had a great idea for the otter assignment.

I sketched this portrait in S Note on a Galaxy phone while working a PR gig for Samsung. The terrified little subject awkwardly tried to hold a smile for me, but it looked more like a grimace. And even after I told him he could relax, he kept it up, apparently uncomprehending.

Watercolor Elephant

Basically this is my first ever attempt at watercolor, which I've been wanting to take a crack at for years. It was a gift for my lady.
