Jack Welch gave his opinion on bourbon distilleries in his column:
Mary Welp wrote about Chef Maria of Maria’s Greek Diner. She is the most adorable woman ever and the food at her restaurant is delicious- especially the baklava.
Happy New Year! I have two illustrations in Louisville Magazine this month:
Jack’s Just Sayin’ column is about the removal of freshly planted saplings from downtown:
The other was for Mary Welp’s Dine In column, which was about the unexpectedly cool surprises that can be found in the international food section of Kroger and World Market. My model was the famous Louisvillian Will Russell– owner of WHY Louisville store, founder of Lebowski Fest, and most recently the new owner of Funtown Mountain in Cave City. He’s also a big fan of the lower Brownsboro Rd. Kroger store (aka Dirty Kroger.)
I was asked to design a Jackalope T Shirt for WHY Louisville. Here it is! Pick one up at the store or thought their website: http://www.whylouisville.com
I went to see the Egon Schiele portrait exhibit at the Neue Galerie in New York and spent a lot of time sketching some of his early drawings. Schiele’s always been one of my favorites, and it was really special to have a chance to look at his work up close. I did these three self portraits this morning with some of those sketches in mind.
I’ve been a subscriber and fan of 3×3 Magazine for quite sometime now. I’ve learned about so many great illustrators from around the world as well as important aspects of the profession. One of the coolest things the magazine offers are portfolio reviews and workshops for illustrators of all levels of experience. I’m excited to take part in both this weekend. I’m excited to get some feedback on my work and learn ways in which I can grow and improve as an illustrator!
3×3’s cover for their most recent issue:
I had a few illustrations in this month’s Louisville Magazine. The first was for Mary Welp’s “Dine In” column. It’s a lime pie. I made this pie before I painted it and it was incredible. Highly recommended!
The next illustration was for Jack Welch’s “Just Sayin” column, about getting Kentucky to embrace Hemp:
Lastly, for “Postcard” I painted The Parklands at Floyd’s Fork:
