The above illustration was for a Wall Street Journal interactive about how fan’s of winning teams still have a tendency to weep about their fortunes. A fun illo, especially incorporating the team mascots.
After a few months of settling in here I’d like to announce the opening of the Sacramento Office of InvisibleMan. It’s nice to be toiling away in the pleasant climes of northern California. Below is a photomerge of the InvisibleManCave:

Here’s a sample image from my Muggmaker poster generator which I’m currently developing.
I’m randomly generating thousands of high-resolution Muggs, which are first passed through a Photoshop action to silhouette them against an alpha channel. Then an PHP script generates a high-resolution file of the Muggs composed in an overlapping crowd, according to the size of the print you want.
I plan on offering unique prints for sale that have your Mugg hidden in the crowd somewhere. No two prints will be alike!
I think I will also have to make some repeating patterns of a crowd like this to make some custom fabric at Spoonflower.

Really looking forward to hanging out with a bunch of these cats as we swoop into the city for Kerry and Corrie’s wedding!
I’ve been working on a series of 32 water color paintings and now about half way through the series. I do a tight pencil sketch, then ink the drawing with waterproof sepia ink, then do the painting over everything. Take a look at the series when you get a chance. http://art2go-rtdm.blogspot.com/
Been staring at this for a long, long time…Have you checked out Muggmaker yet?
