Illustration of Rajai Davis

Rajai Davis

I haven’t posted much to this website in a long while. I’ve been working a lot lately and raising my wonderful, baby boy, Mateo. Tonight, Mateo went to bed early, which left me enough time to put this illustration together.

Rajai Davis is my favorite active baseball player–Frank Thomas is my favorite. I’ve wanted to do a baseball themed illustration for a while, so I thought I would draw Rajai. Of course, as is almost always the case, it’s nothing like I expected it to be. I wanted it to be much more stylized and much more cartoony. Still, I’m pretty happy with how it came out.

Good luck to Rajai and the rest of the Oakland Athletics.

Nafiz’s Heirloom Tomatoes

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

Last year, I was asked to design a logo and image for a T-shirt. This is the finished image that adorned the back of the T-shirt:

I know the family that this design was done for and a lot of what you see in the illustration is a not-so-funny inside joke. Still, when I look at it, it makes me smile because it makes me think of Nafiz and tomatoes and having a passion for something that you do–like the passion that Nafiz has for his heirloom tomatoes.

It also reminds me that tomato season is coming soon.

It’s a detail from an illustration that I am currently working on. When finished, the illustration will decorate one full wall of my new child’s room.

Crow “Illustration”

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

I put this simple illustration together today. I was inspired by the Halloween season.

It’s essentially a traced still from a video that I shot outside of my home. The trees here are filled with crows and the cacophony of their calls at dusk is a little bit spooky, a little bit pleasant, and often amusing.

I made this while my sample table cut pieces for the SLG Booth:

This sketch was inspired by the work of Jeff Victor.
