This page is dedicated to new jobs that I’m working on or have just completed, as well as projects from the past. It is to show the creative process of used sketches and finished art. It also showcases the unique art jobs I attract promoting educational purposes, character development and other forms of imaginative creations.
Here is a page from the children’s book, Ned Says…I LOVE IT HERE! The simple story of a simple “monk” tells a day in his life and all the adventures a happy, little monk can have. The secret to his happy demeanor comes from distributing positive messages in the form of stickers. In fact, the book comes with stickers that read: “Awesome!”, “Spread Good Vibes!”, and, of course- “I Love it Here!” (to name a few). You can find the stickers and the book at www.freelycreative.com/ned.
The drawing above is an editorial cartoon for the “towns” of Essex Junction and Essex Town. In a constant struggle to merge or not merge, opinions are high at either end. What was asked of me is usually spelled out in words, phone calls (or Zoom), and sometimes drawing examples. The example to the left helped in the creation on the right:)
This project ended up requiring a superhero-like character “to get the job done!” But several ideas included a nerdy look, intelligence, and then basic concepts of spandex-wearing greatness.
