Taking Another Crack At Ye Olde Photoshoppe
Nick Magazine suggests putting a pizza in your parka might not be the best way to stay warm in the winter months. It's always worked for me, however.
Just turned this one yesterday. I'm feeling pretty good about it. Photoshoppin' is still a bit alien to me. In fact it slowed me down quite a bit. But I've been displeased with the work I've been doing for the children's market for a long while and I think I might be coming around the bend here.

Whenever an assignment for the kids' market comes up I immediately channel my set of 1967 Childcraft Encyclopedias. Almost the entire set is done in Cyan and Black tones and is the coolest goddamn thing ever. I've tried to slip this past several clients but to no avail.

Anyhow, the texture and line in those books and in the illos of the era are something I've been after for some time and with this last one I believe I'm closing in on it.
This was one of several rejected homages to my beloved Childcraft Encyclopedias.
