My Honda Del Sol is for sale

Well folks I hate to see it go but with two kids this wonderful car is just not practical for us any longer. After Cindi having a flat in downtown Atlanta a couple of weeks ago with the kids I could not go pick up the kids and help her out with our second car. She and the kids were on the side of the road for about 4 hours until a HERO unit finally came after several un-kept promises. It was a bad situation and of course hindsight is 20/20. This was the straw that broke the camel's back.

We're officially selling our 1995 Honda Del Sol as of today. It's one of those sought after cars and we hope to give her a nice home at the right price. So if you know anyone in the market send them this link.

We are also now officially in the the market for hopefully a 6+ passenger used vehicle. We have been researching for quite some time and considering several cars not limited to Honda Odyssey, Honda Pilot, Mazda MPV, Nissan Quest, or anything else that fits the bill. If you have any suggestions feel free to let me know.

UPDATE!!! It sold in less than 24 hours for only $150 less than asking price!

Illustration Friday - Rain

Weather It Together

This was for a local Girl Scout group t-shirt. This is a side style to my more realistic and detailed work. It's all done in Illustrator mainly using the brush tool. I wanted to created a simple little weather game/dance that all ages could do that would be appropriate for the them of the Camporee. I appreciate kind remarks, but I would rather have constructive criticism about this style departure and any improvements. You can see more of this style on a alternate portfolio here.

Illustration Friday - Portrait

I'm a big believer in getting good reference for my illustrations. The best kind of model reference is usually myself because I'm free and available at any point in time, especailly at 2 AM. Instead of just showing a self portrait for Illustration Friday's Portrait entry, I'd like to show you some instances where I have used myself as reference material for my illustrations over the years. I have had the pleasure of becoming Joseph from the Bible, Prodigal Son, policeman, Army soldier, trucker, black guy, IT Guy, and lots of business corporate types. Also included is my self-portrait from 1996, and old logo, and a photo of me with longish hair. Click the picture to see a larger image of it with clickable links to the whole illustration.
