3 Scarves, a Neck Tie and a Drawstring walk into a train...

The T (trolley) is a great place to sketch. New people are always coming on and best of all, a lot of riders tend to stand or sit relatively still so I can get a decent chance at doing a drawing I'm happy with.

Looking over these sketches right now, I just realized each person is wearing something around their neck... I guess it's not so unusual for a Boston winter.

5 Faces: One Liners

I have a section of my website I call one-liners (you'll find it as a category in the "ed" section) where each illustration is made up of, you guessed it, one line. These were some illustrations I sketched in my sketchbook before I transposed them to my computer and redid them with cleaner lines.

Sometimes I like to trace the lines with my eyes just to make me dizzy = )

Value vs Growth Investing

Out this month in Black Enterprise magazine is a great article that I had the privilege to illustrate. It discusses the merits of both types of investing, Value and Growth, to help enable the reader to make better decisions.

I was asked by the editor to come up with a couple of sketch ideas that would depict the two investing options and this is the one that was chosen. I couldn't possibly convey how many poses I went through before deciding on the two in the illustration- I didn't want this to be too testosterone-driven or make it look like either figure has the advantage- so both men are depicted as if they had just been going about their usual day at the office when someone gave them some armor and a sword and told them to fight.
The article together with the illustration.
To read this article, check out the March 2010 issue of Black Enterprise Magazine or go here (my illustration doesn't appear on the online version).
