Adelia: The fishing hole (finished)

I finally finished this one! I've been painting it (what seems like) FOREVER! It was a lot of fun though...I usually don't get so complicated with my designs for Adelia - she's usually up against a white backdrop (as she's always running about in the snow) it was nice to break out of that. Hopefully this is the first of many new paintings for a new story featuring Adelia.

Adelia: at the fishing hole

I cleaned it up in Illustrator last night. This afternoon for lunch (in between magazine reading at the bookstore) I did a revision on this. I also decided I should do a light study...not set in stone or anything...I believe I'll have the light source come from the opposite direction from where it is in this picture...but I'm one step away from being ready to color it.

This picture is helping me brew another adventure for Adelia...hopefully it goes somewhere...but we'll see...

The Simpsons: The Burger King Project completed

So the 'Simpsonize Me' project is finally at an end (until they call me for the next thing). Originally (this time around) was going to do 6 executives as simpsons characters...but by the time I got the first e-mail about the job to when I agreed to it - we had ballooned that number to 26. And to top it all off they added another 5 characters to take me through the weekend. All in all it was a fun's great to get freelance that pays as well as entertains.

You can find other Simpsons related freelance art (but mostly penguin art) at my portfolio -

Simpsonize Me: what I'm working on...

This is a project I'm currently working on for The Simpsons and Burger King. I worked with them earlier this summer helping to design a matrix where people could upload a picture of themselves and turn themselves into a simpsons character. It was supposed to be in conjuntion with the movie - we went up against the wire making the program can check that out at
I was contacted earlier this week to turn several groups of Burger King execs into 'kind' versions of themselves as Simpsons characters. This is the original picture:

And this is how I drew them as Simpsons characters...some lent themselves to the project easier than others (also, they didn't want anyone to be sitting and they're all holding briefcases for some reason...):
