How to Tie a Scarf the French Way

I illustrated this subject for a short article in Joy Magazine. I did the line drawing on paper, did the color with acrylic paint using a plastic strip cut from a credit card as you would use a palette knife, and then scanned both images and combined them in PhotoShop.

Monster Garages — Homelife Magazine

The editor thought this subject and headline called for a whimsical cartoon of a monster. I love to do cartoons, so I really had fun with this project. I drew the cartoon and designed the layout.

Illustrations for an article on battered wives — W3 Magazine

I created this first illustration by finding two faces in clip art and combining them with a drawing I did of a hand in the same style. After combining them in PhotoShop, I airbrushed a black eye onto one of the faces.

Ultimately, however the illustration below was the one chosen to illustrate the article. I used the same technique of combining two pieces of clip art and altering them slightly to illustrate the subject. The color and drop shadow was added in PhotoShop.
