Little Jack

I thought I would share with you all what I have been working on in my Children’s Book Illustration class. The story I am illustrating is called The Kernel written by Maury Covington Jr., a film student at my school. That’s all I will say about the story, I don’t want to give anything away yet. So far I’ve developed the main character. His name is Little Jack. Below are some of my sketches and Little Jack. I haven’t decided on the medium I will be using so he won’t look exactly like the drawings below.

    LOL, it looks like my sketch book when I come up with ideas for a new painting. I love to see the process of how artists come up with there concepts. The final version is great. The glasses really work and give him a lot of character.

    Hey guys. i just posted up an open call to artists/designers who may be interested in doin a design for our banner at Our old banner we have up now has been there for over a year and well…its prety tired. If you guys or if you guys have some local art friends who would be interested in designing a banner and promoting there work please stop by and check out the post about our banner design call to artists. Would be killer to have the Art Behing the Fridge crew cook up a sweet design. Later guys!-BG

    Thanks a lot Jim. That would be awesome. The guys at The OB can come up with a banner and all but, the site is more about promoting other artists in Jax and not just ourselves. Thanks a bunch man! I think this will be easier for you guys since we both use the same template on wordrpess..LOL! Later.

    Thank you. I really appreciate that. I’m pretty happy with how he turned out. Unfortunately when i posted the final version part of the ear got cut off.
