Go Big, and Go Home!

In the latest Austin Monthly, this fantastic illustration accompanying a equally jaw-dropping article about one fellow, perhaps you know him, who goes a bit overboard in renovating his house after winning the lottery.

There's even a twist ending!

Road Rules

Fresh off the presses of Arlington magazine, a new piece illustrating how damn complicated the road names are in Arlington, and Alexandria; most of Northern Virginia, really.

Bored in a hoodie

For this one, I decided to tear a page out of Yuko Shimizu's exquisitely detailed style book.  Not so much with the cloth, but she has a way of rendering every hair  on a person's head, or every flower on a tree, or every stitch in a sweater in ways that seem almost patterned, that I applied to the hair and beard on this guy.

The Line: It Is Lego

This was an experiment (courtesy of The Line: It Is Drawn, at Comic Book Resources) on how crisp I could get raw pencils over non-repro blue line graphite.  Honestly, not as clean as I'd have liked, but then I was working with extremely fat lead.  I may try this again.

December in Canada

Boxing Day is a national holiday in Canada and a number of European countries in which you leave out presents with your discarded Christmas boxes for the trash man and other municipal workers.

As you can tell from the garbage man's hat and uniform, this is Toronto, and the fat jolly fellow is therefore Rob Ford, Toronto's happy-go-lucky crack-smoking mayor.

November in India

Hindus consider cows to be sacred, to the point where you simply cannot hit a cow with your vehicle, no matter what it's doing in the road.  Obviously, it was only a matter of time before other animals took advantage of this.

I was attempting to match India with the month of Diwali, but apparently this year, it's taking place on October 23.  Nuts.
