Here's my submission for the Illustration Friday topic this week of "hollow". Poor kid has a hollow tummy. Time for a Mac attack!

I'd also like to announce that I've begun a newsletter. It's to keep folks updated with fresh new samples of work. It also has links to helpful websites and resources for creative types, and other fun and cool things that I find. I intend to send it monthly, but that may vary depending on how much time I have.

I'm also on Twitter now too, so if you'd like to follow me there, please do! I think it's a great way for us in the illustration and design community to keep in touch despite the distances between us. Also it's another way to shamelessly promote myself, something now that I'm a full time freelancer I can't do enough of.

Once Upon A Time...

I'm finally done my small business course and decided to celebrate by catching up on some drawings.This piece was supposed to be in response to the IF topic of "Unfold" a couple weeks back.

There's another version of this that can be seen here. The difference is a blue background, and a different font for the type. I think I prefer this version but feel free to let me know your thoughts! The character was in part inspired by Groucho Marx as when I started this my wife and I had just watched Duck Soup (which I highly reccomend).
