Hi everyone,
I'm switching gears to a children's soccer piece that I concepted a few months ago. After deliberating between the two designs, I decided upon the simpler composition of the kids playing soccer in an urban setting. I felt this piece allowed for the most experimentation without overwhelming me. Here's the color study. I'm still working on adding and refining details but this will give you an idea of what's going on in my head.

I plan on returning to the second design in the future, the dog is just too cute to pass.

Thank you to everyone who gave me feedback on these when I initially posted, you guys help push me to make better illustrations.

Erika is going to be in Communication Arts!

Warren Buffet has been accepted into the Communication Arts Illustration Annual, due out this May! Yay, Go Warren!

Now I’m juggling five pieces -- the coffee shop debate and soccer pieces, as well as some new portraits and editorial images. There will be a new post soon, but I wanted to reassure everyone that I haven’t disappeared. I’ll leave these two images to whet your appetite.
