i know its not an illustration persay but i figured it would be alright to put a 3d piece up. so here he is making his illofriday blog debut. and im sure cheryl is ecstatic upon his arrival too. i know i am cheating again by using something i already have done, but i have been waiting for the perfect topic to put this little guy up here. i have a few different shots i wanted to share with everyone so they could get the full effect of him. hes just styrofoam and sequins, but i pinned each one on one by one. it took me about 2 months to complete so you could see why he is my pride and joy. enjoy!

a little late but still completed...match for illofriday....

its a little late but i had promised i would post it!! this was for illofriday's 'Match' a couple weeks ago. i started working on it right away, but then i had some company down for the weekend, making me focus more on cleaning the house than painting. needless to say, i missed the deadline. however, as soon as the company left i picked my paintbrush back up and finished this one out. it came out perfectly, one of the few that looks exactly like what i had planned in my head. i was so excited about the outcome i decided to hang it in my room instead of sticking it in one of my many portfolios. one thing about this painting that you might not be able to determine by just a photo is that it has a 3d effect. the match is actually painted on a piece of styrofoam poster board and glued on with pop dots to give it a 3d effect. the background is just your regular canvas and it was all done with acrylics. hope you guys like it as much as i do. enjoy!
