Doom of Love in Small Spaces

I can't believe I never posted this... I did this illustration over the winter for Realms of Fantasy Magazine. It was for a really interesting, allegorical story called "The Doom of Love in Small Spaces" by Ken Scholes. It was in the May issue.. unfortunately, a quick google search did not reveal any online versions of the story.

View from Santa Monica Beach

To kick off our 4th of July weekend o' fun, Rachel and I hit the beach after our half day of work last Thursday. I sketched our office building, 100 Wilshire (the tall one), and the condos and other building along Ocean Ave, while soaking up the sun.

I got very sunburned while drawing this.

Reinventing Louisville

I did this illustration for the May issue of Louisville Magazine. It is for an article called "Reinventing Louisville" by John Gilderbloom & Matt Hanka. The article throws out some ideas to make Louisville a bustling, thriving downtown. The whole issue is about downtown Louisville - plans for the future, what it's like to live downtown, etc. It's a fantastic issue - I encourage any fans of Louisville to purchase a back issue.
