Bullies, Burglars and Hair Care

Do your illustration assignments seem to come in themed groups?

I don't mean getting calls to draw Santa in November. I don't mean that at all. I'm talking about getting a series of unrelated calls over a few months where art directors want a particular theme or visual. For me, last year it was robots. The year before it was ducks. This year kids and bullies seems to be a hot topic. Super heroes are also a go-to theme this year.

Here are a few pieces I worked on this spring. I do a lot of artwork for the kids market and I am always amazed at the range of topics that seem to come my way. Burglars, bullies, dogs and cats, manatees, hair care, earthquakes, Abe Lincoln, Jesus, Super Guys and Ronald McDonald. And thats all since March.
