Bow Tie Guy of the Day: Peacock


Peacock (ˈpēˌkäk)

I have been drawing every day, but there have been a great deal of things that have limited my time. Where I would be able to do this in an hour or so in one day, I have distributed the work over four or so days.

The peacock is the male name for a peafowl. The iridescent blue peacock is from India.

A work in progress


Here is the rough and final drawing the Willy Wonka poster. Throughout the process I simplified the illustration. The production of Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka will be at the Vermont Children's Theater on July 21,22,23 at 7p 28,29, and 30 at 2 and 7.

In preparation for the the project, I read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for the first time. It is a wonderful book. I wish it hadn't taken me so long to get to.

I went more conceptual with this. It is something mew for me. And a special note, to prove a point,  there is no bow tie in this illustration.

More from Europe: Vendor at the Spanish Steps


While waiting for the group to gather together for our trip back to the hotel, I drew this vendor that was next to the Spanish Steps in Rome.

It has been a while since my last post. I have been dealing with a great deal and I was without wifi for a number of days because of my participation in a young men's camp.

Sketches from Europe: A view of Delphi


Delphi is still one of my favorite places to visit. I would like to go and spend a few days there. It is so peaceful and beautiful. Here is a sketch looking down on the temple of Apollo from my last visit in February.

Preliminary work for Vermont Children's Theater


I hope to have this completed soon. Here is the preliminary drawings for the poster for Shrek Jr the Musical. This has been fun drawing all the fairy tale creatures.
