PHEWWW! Halloween is over.

You see my son is five which is half the number that his costume wants changed. He finally decided on the Black Spiderman, which is always a real safe bet while trick or treating at night. We made it through the holiday though without any injuries or cavities.

The Wednesday before Halloween, I received a phone call from the Wall Street Journal. They needed a cover for the Entertainment section on Friday. This all meant that this painting needed to be finished no later than 4pm the following day to print for Friday. I took the job and was quite pleased with the outcome. This is the process that it took on in under 24 hours.
They chose #4

today is the day...

Sidebar... I don't understand why illustrators seem to take huge shortcuts in technique for rush jobs. I've noticed lately that some have been changing what they are recognized for because of a tight deadline. Fast is fast, personally I enjoy the challenge.

For the kids in Douglas.. I promise my next post will have some of the natural bridge paintings I did. Thanks for checking this out. -Z-
