Hey Guys. So, just as promised, there will be more regular updates. Here are some more Illustrations that I've worked on recently, some of which I am re posting from the last blog in order to show the final layout withing the magazine.

The Image on the left was done for Boy's Life Magazine. It was done for a story about a group of boy scouts finding a woman suffering from Alzheimer's, disoriented and lost in Puget Sound, Blake Island.

I had to keep the woman's face somewhat ambiguous while still reflecting her age and disoriented expression. The Boy Scout were not wearing uniforms at that time it seems as I was told to keep their clothing nothing but simple shirts and cargo pants.

You can also view the attached video below that describes the event in a bit more detail.

The next illustration was done for Military Officer Magazine. It was done as a spot illustration for an article that talks about the sale of used stocks and how it is comparable to selling used cars.

My original submission depicted
Warren Buffet selling a used vehicle, but then needed to redraw it and make the concept a bit clearer for the readers and show used stocks instead.

Here is the brief write up that I worked with
provided by the client: Attitude has a huge influence over our decision-making. Whether we are trusting or dubious, optimistic, or pessimistic determines the matters we judge to be important in the process. A good example is buying a car. We have different attitudes when considering a new car than we do when looking at used cars. With new cars we are distracted by the, well, newness — the shiny and fresh intrigue of that new car smell. With used cars we notice the scratches, road dings, and that funny odor from the air conditioner.With used cars, we wonder why the owner wants to sell. Is he hiding something that is wrong with the car? We are, in a word, skeptical.
Buying a stock is very much like buying a used car. In virtually all cases (except for initial public offerings) the stock you buy is being sold by someone else. You are buying a used stock.
So it pays to be just as skeptical when buying a used stock as when buying a used car. In fact, you should ask the same questions: “Why does the owner want to sell? Is something wrong with this stock?”
If you find this advice silly, how would you feel if you knew you were buying the same stock Warren Buffett was selling?
This is another Illustration for MOAA. A full page illustration continuing the Super Hero theme accompanying tax related articles.

I have posted this image earlier, in my old blog, but now that I have the illustration with the final text layout, I thought I'd share the piece in its final form.

From now on, I will be doing the title text myself, giving it more of a comic book feel and giving this section of the magazine are more individual look. Below are some of the older page layouts from the same
Super Hero Series.
