Drawing In Church - 12/30

I need Kurt to preach a bit longer. I'd like to add a herd of riderless 5-legged camels coming up the mountain.

USS Trumpetfish

A drawing I did for my father for Christmas. He spent his time in the Navy on this submarine, The Trumpetfish SS-425. He told me stories about when the water was unusually calm, they could pop the hatch and drink coffee on the deck. Wish I could have shared that with him.

Garden & Gun

It has been a busy week in the studio. I'll be posting the NBA campaign next week, as it all wrapped up yesterday. I've already received many calls and emails from friends saying they have seen the ads in print.

For now, here is a drawing I had some fun with, for Garden & Gun Magazine. Much of the graphic tom-foolery was influenced by the amazing Al Parker show, Ephemeral Beauty, up through January 28th at the Washington University Kemper Museum. If you are in the region, its a wonderful retrospective.

This was about a foundation for nature conservation created by Nascar driver Ward Burton. It's a stock car made of leaves. Hah.

Needless to say, I'm a purist.

COVER: Abe Crosses a Creek

Over the last 6 weeks, I've been busy with the final changes to the Abe Lincoln book drawings. That along with a great advertising project I'm working on for the NBA has kept me out of regular editorial work. (I'm pounding the pavement again, so I'll be posting a few new ones by next week. ) But the elbow grease of the last fortnight has produced... a sneak peek:

Here is the cover for the above-and-oft-mentioned Abe Lincoln book. Hold your horses, you won't be able to buy your 12-18 copies until next fall. Good News: Next on the drawing table, I'm working on the art for the book I wrote about John Brown. Bad News: Prepare yourself for looking at more antebellum-themed images for the next 10 months.
