A Few of my Favorite Themes: The Intruder

The Intruder

Here's where you can see the influence of classic suspense thrillers growing up, especially the works of Alfred Hitchcock.

You may also be able to detect my introverted personality in these illustrations of someone who just bursts onto the scene to spoil the tranquility of solitude. 

Sometimes its a foreboding omen of things to come.

Or maybe someone just doesn't understand personal boundaries

But it can also be an unexpected source of seasonal comfort and charity

I even made a whole Pinterest board of this theme for inspiration:

Now I want to hear from you! 

What's your favorite example of "The Intruder" be it in my work or other art?

What other themes would you like to see in this series?

I got the job!

Good news! I got the job as a caricature artist at Cedar Point for the summer!

It's a position I found through Kaman's Art Shoppes.

No, Kaman's, not Kamens
This means I'll be moving to Sandusky OH in the next week, so I may be off the grid while I set up and start my training.

On the plus side, maybe this will finally be my chance to upgrade to a mobile device with a camera so that I can keep you all up to date via Instagram! Thats just one of many good things this job could lead to...

In the meantime, I'm off to celebrate in the tradition of my people!

Sketch you later!

Good Friday

Here's a picture of Jesus I drew as part of a mailer for "Red Threads". I had done some designs for them back in 2013 when they were just a start up company. Now they've got their own offices and printing set up and everything. Cool!

Have a Good Friday and a Happy Easter!
