Complex Magazine

Just got the call from the extremely friendly designer over at Complex Magazine last week about a fun little fashion spot for their upcoming issue. Basically it's a fashion gone wrong image of a style that I saw a lot of in the midwest, the always frightening, all denim suit. It was big change from the more concept driven stuff that I have been up to lately, but it was a lot of fun trying to add a few details to give him a little more "character". Plus, any day that I can draw a mullet is a good day.

Portrait of Arikawa

Just completed the full page portrait of Masakazu Arikawa, the president of a company called M Cube, for the premiere issue of Electronic Magazine. Below are the usual process pictures, which for this project involved a more in depth black and painted portrait than usual. I was a little worried how the paint would translate into color, but it was a fun challenge that seems to have worked out pretty well.
