Digital Illustration TutorialI made this tutorial back in 2010 as a pitch for a project that never took off. I finally decided I should just bundle it up as a PDF and upload it for anyone who wants to see it. It's old and the image quality isn't super great, but it covers my process from idea creation, composition, adding color, all the way to the final draft, and there might be something useful in there for some of you. Download the tutorial here!

Devious Journal EntryIn light of the recent bombings at the Boston Marathon, I have decided I will be offering a charity item in my shop in order to contribute something to those who have been affected by this tragedy.Starting tomorrow, I will have the item in my shop and will have it there for a month. The item will be a miniature Boston cream pie charm, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross. At the end of the month I will make a lump sum donation to them.I really hope this is not coming across as tacky or as a gimmick on my part to increase page views/sales/what have you. This is a very sad and horrible event that has happened and it has affected so many people. I would like to do my part in trying to help.I will have the items up tomorrow morning-ish and will post when I do.
