I WOW By....

Being the Illustration Procees Owner is a lot of work at the O.C. but sometimes you do get fun projects to work on. I was asked to illustrate the first of 7 posters we are using all around the office building and I had a good time working on this project. It was hard subject matter and really made me think outside the box. I sketched ideas in pencil, scanned them in and Illustrated over them in Adobe Illustrator CS3.

Pronounced "Sphere's". I designed this logo for Cindi Perkins for her new natural cutical oil, body oils, and natural body line. She gave me free reign to design the logo, she wanted something hip and modern, with a natural element to it.I really like this design alot. Thanks Cindi.

I have been comissioned by a friend of mine, Steve Wilkinson, to paint a picture for his wife Quisha. This was a huge project, the painting is 5' x 3' on canvas. Steve picked the subject matter and the color and I came up with the creative style and balance of the piece. I normally would take a month or two to develop a painting, but this was a suprise birthday present for Quisha and I had to complete this piece in 3 weeks. Buy supplies, create painting, paint, get the picture photographed, and get the painting shipped to Kansas. It was quite the project. Quite fun.

These 2 pieces were commisioned by MPI of Utah. They needed a Dragon for their Save the Date, Invitations, and Programs for their Chinese Auction. I created the second Dragon by pencil drawing it then scanning it into Photoshop and coloring it in the computer.
The first Dragon was a piece I did for their silent auction, it is a 10" x 14" acrylic painting on canvas. I donated both pieces for charity, the auction benefits the Make A Wish foundation.

Directory of Illustration

I have bought a page in an Illustration Annual called "The Directory of Illustration". This is the cover of the annual and my page is on the left. I am really excited to be in this book because it is seen by almost every Art Director in america, close to 150,000. The hope is that this will generate new business for DEAN Illustration. Keep your fingers crossed.
