New Things

hello. here are some new pieces. I'm making more use of my Ohger blog now, but will try to keep on posting here as well. some sketchbook pages coming soon.



So I'm kind of redoing my entire portfolio and trying to constantly make new work. I've been choosing random editorial articles and doing illustrations for them. This one was about "getting an upgrade".



Illustration inspired by the book "Where the Red Fern Grows" by Wilson Rawls. When I was in elementary school my teacher read it aloud to my class and it immediately became one of my favorite books. It made me want a dog so bad and when I did eventually get one many years later, I was always afraid of losing him in the woods surrounding my house. Some of you might have seen another version of this...but I decided to go back into it and clean it up a little bit.

I want a cat now though.

These are great, that "getting an upgrade" one is too funny, and i love the way you handled the bottom trunks of the trees with the lines to show snow build up. Very nice
