I just wanted to say thanks to all of you for stopping by and checking out my work. This week has brought the most traffic this blog has ever seen.
Thought I would share some of the progress of the last Gizmodo illustration. I was asked for an image of Jeff Bezos sitting on a throne with a shadowy figure whispering in his ear. I tried a few different layouts but decided to go with this one because it had Jeff close enough in the foreground to do a portrait, but far enough away to show the throne. Any closer and the throne would be lost and any further away and I would lose detail for the portrait, this was my thinking anyway. The coloring was the difficult part with this one, I just couldn't seem to get the colors right. In the end, I'm happy with the way it turned out. I would do a few things different if I had the time, guess I'll just have to save it for the next one.
