I had the privilege of illustrating each month for the editor of Harrisburg-based
The Burg News. I’m already at work on the January 2017 issue, but here’s a look back.
Nine illustrations in different styles to start out January. It might have been the toughest assignment.
My son was more than willing to stand in as a model for this illustration. I completed most of this drawing on my iPad while visiting a friend in a Denver hospital.
An illustration for the legal batter regarding the Third Street Cafe.
I’ve done a number of illustrations while sitting at the bar at Sturges Speakeasy on a Sunday night. This is one of them.
Another one done at Sturges, albeit interrupted to share Sara and Lauren’s charcuterie plate (thanks for feeding a hungry artist!).
Sometimes, one has to run on-site to get pictures of the scene.
I paint everything digitally, but painting letters has to be one of the most time-consuming things.
Sometimes, the concept you want to do isn’t the one that’s picked, as is the case, here.
Illustration to accompany an article that reflected back at the city’s progress over the summer.
Finding a landmark besides the capitol dome to represent Harrisburg can be challenging. The Sprocket mural on the Midtown Cinema is a nice addition to represent this town.
My Norman Rockwell homage for an article that touched on the death of print.
Illustration for the closing of the A. Lane Furniture store.
