ADDY materials on display with other winners.
At last night’s New Mexico ADDY awards, presented at the Isleta Hotel in Albuquerque, the promotional material for LAST year’s ADDYs, featuring my illustration, won its own Gold ADDY Award, as well as making the “Albuquerque Thirty” list of most creative ideas submitted.
Now, while it’s hardly unheard of that the creative from the previous year’s ADDYS wins an ADDY (like the previous year’s Emmy awards show winning an Emmy!) it doesn’t always happen. All the judges for the ADDYs are from other markets so there is impartiality.
24 Gold ADDYs in total were given out last night. I’m very proud that the work we did on the ADDY committee last year won one of them.
I’ll be a guest at the fourth annual Albuquerque Comic Con this weekend, and I’ll be selling an exclusive Savage print featuring a beautiful depiction of the Sandias at sunset. It’s a limited-edition print that’ll only be available at the show.
I’ll also, as usual, have books, original art and sketches to sell, and of course I’ll be happy to meet you! So stop by and say hello!
The hit series Breaking Bad is ending this Sunday. In honor of the occasion I’m posting the last of my storyboards for the series.
This scene, like the previous storyboard I posted, was for the Season 5 episode “Buyout.” SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t seen this episode but want to, don’t look!
Last week I posted some storyboards I did for Breaking Bad in their fourth season. I did some storyboards for the episode “Buyout” in Season 5. I drew two scenes; the first one, the episode teaser, is shown below. (SPOILER: Don’t look if you haven’t seen that episode but plan to!)
It’s not just fashion designers or fashion illustrators who need to keep on top of the latest fashions. Trends in one field of design always influence others, and it’s a good idea to stay on top of the latest styles.
I’ve been trying lately to be more mindful of fashion. As an illustrator for the Art of Manliness and Real Men Real Style sites, of course, I need to know. Plus, I’m tired of being told my women look like they’re from the ’80s.
Pantone has come out with their report on the colors of next fall’s women’s fashions, as well as interviews with several designers and fashion influencers. If you’re a designer or illustrator of any type, or if you’re just curious, go check it out.
The new Art of Manliness Store is up and running. In addition to some very nice t-shirts, notebooks, stickers and books, it features a section on posters, including my Know Your Lifts posters and my Smartphone Etiquette series. Check it out!
We’re trying something different at Art of Manliness — well, different for them; a historical moment conveyed in comics form!
I’m very proud of this story we put together from an excerpt of Frederick Douglass’ autobiography. In his own words, Douglass describes a moment when he asserted his rights as a human being.
If this one goes over well we’ll do more. It seems like that’s already the case.
I’ve created a series of vintage-style posters for the lifestyle blog Art of Manliness highlighting smartphone etiquette.
The posters are inspired from the old safety posters of the ’40s through the ’60s that would be put up in workplaces to remind workers the importance of wearing a hardhat or the dangers of loose clothing or not enough sleep.
Since being included in the Art of Manliness’ Gift Guide this year, Savage, the graphic novel about a vampire hunter in the Old West written by R.A. Jones and drawn by Ted, has been selling very well! We’ve sold more than fifty from our sales page, where you can also get copies of Ted’s Jazz Age two-volume set. Ted will sign them to whomever you ask, and there’s even a free shipping option! (Though this close to Christmas I’d recommend paying extra for Priority Mail.)
