As is often the case, new art directors mean, well, new art direction, and so i was recently informed that March's piece would turn out to be my last. To mark this changing of the guard, here's a round up of some of the good, the bad, & the bizarre: some pieces from this series that still grace my portfolio proper, some totally failed but hopefully interesting experiments, some complete snoozers, some easy winners. In some cases, i haven't looked at these images since emailing them off to the magazine 2, 3, 4 years ago, and there are some thought provoking/embarrassing aesthetic choices going on in a lot of these, most notably the 2008-9 4th quarter ill-advised "digital trash" phase, shout out to the original cast and crew of studio 410, heh heh... Somewhat strangely and more thoroughly than i expected, they're an (hopefully) interesting little window into the changes in my work and process over the several years.
In closing, my deep and sincere thanks to Jessica Daynor and the staff at Draft for allowing my drawings to populate the back page of the magazine these last four years. Cheers!
