Quick overnight spot illustration for Baltimore Ravens-themed Maryland Lottery tickets and billboards. Digitally painted in Photoshop. This was one of those fairly normal advertising agency situations where the assignment was given to me many weeks in advance but was put on "hold", and then one afternoon a frantic email shows up saying "It's a go- We need it by tomorrow morning!!!" Fortunately, it went pretty quickly and I was able to go to bed on time. Thank you internet for multiple references shots!
It's December here in the studio and things are hopping! I've found my role as the family Santa has turned more into that of a late-night online ordering elf as brown paper boxes begin arriving at my doorstep on a semi-regular basis, Today, though, one of those big brown mystery boxes arrived that wasn't another secret kid gift. Instead, it held a pile of brand new puzzles from Bits and Pieces. Most likely this bird scene was painted in the heat of August but finally now seems OK to post. Take a look!:
