Meet the Flintstones

Late last night I had the urge to try and make a higher-end illustration of the Flintstones house. Here are the results.

Mountains

Wanted to play around with some more motion graphics, so I illustrated a quick mountain scene and made this.

The Petersen Museum

Latest in my Los Angeles illustration series, The Petersen Automotive Museum. Fun fact, Biggie Smalls was killed while leaving an event at The Petersen. I think about it every time I drive by Wilshire and Fairfax... or at least when I did pre-Covid.

Mother’s Day Card

I've been trying to teach myself more motion graphics in After Effects, so I decided to make a card for Mother's Day this year.

Hotel Illustration

A few months ago while I was on Reddit I came across a photo of a hotel. I thought it would make a really nice illustration, so I saved it. I finally had some free time over the weekend so I went ahead and took a stab at it.

Capitol Records Building

After I finished Randy's, I was still feeling super motivated to draw so I decided to take on another Los Angeles landmark. While drawing Randy's I realized that my style lent itself to painting so I made a few modifications. to see how it'd look. Which do you prefer?

As a side note, I took the original mural and dropped it in in Photoshop. I'm not skilled enough to recreate real art on my own.

Randy’s Donuts

You start to think about the things you miss when you're stuck inside during a pandemic. It's kind of like how I think about what I miss while I'm dieting. In this case, I'm doing both simultaneously. As such, I realized I really really miss donuts. So I illustrated the biggest one I could think of.

I was originally going to just do it as a black and white, but decided to add color once I got close to finishing. Both versions are below. Have a preference?

NYC Illustration

I was going through some old photos I shot while I was living in NY and found one from the Fort George Neighborhood that I thought would make a good illustration.

I started out more or less tracing the original photo, but figured out that doing it that way was super inefficient and created perspective issues since every individual window would have to be custom made. I remembered that Illustrator has a Perspective Grid tool, so I figured out how to use it and was able to be way more efficient as a result.

Brother’s House Illustration

For my brother's birthday I made him an illustration of the first house he owned. Him and his wife moved into a new house this past June, so I thought it would be a fun thing to hang in his new house.

Line Portrait Illustration

Came across a photo on Reddit and thought it would make an interesting illustration.
