for my newest sketchbook, i decided to go in a different direction. since it's been a while since i have done an actual full illustration that wasn't a private commission or gift that i didn't feel like posting. so, i decided i would dedicate this journal to illustration sketches only and not just comics and doodles (although that will be back soonish).
so for my first two weeks of this journal, i sketched out and started to finalize two groups of illustrations.
the first group is a series of illustrations of metaphysical concepts as told with sideshow performers (the concepts are choice [conjoined twins], self [lady cut in half], perception [bearded lady], essence [strong man], and value [tall man, tiny woman].) i thought that circus performers and geeks were a good representation of these concepts, and of the human condition in general.
the second series is more light-hearted: signage for areas of the home as told by monsters (areas are: kitchen, bedrooms [kid, teen, adult], bathroom, living room, office, entrance]).
here are the sketches and early finals:
the finals of the illustrations will be coming soon!

sketches from this past week.
this is the end of the third sketch book i've finished since at my new job, so for my next one i'm going to switch things up. i'm going to try and finish an illustration a week, so most of my posts will be in-process sketches and then full illustrations. i'm going to try and do an extinct animal series, so stay tuned.
