We had no new keyart for our Rebirth 1-3 bind-up, so I was given the task of taking one of the interior pages and colorizing it.

Manga School with Selina Lin, May 2008 In-Manga Supplement Ad

March 18, 2008

An ad I designed with the premise of her “Manga School” in mind.
The licensor approved cover created by my coworker, Jenny Carbajal. We weren’t approved to use art from the book by the licensor, so I created a cute sketch of the book’s artist, Selina Lin.
The sketch was created in ball-point pen. And then colorized in Photoshop:
(The “Wazzup G?” was added for flavor.)
The final ad came out looking cool. There’s a chibi version of me saying I used the techniques from this book to make this ad. It’s printed in black and white, and be seen in Tokyopop manga May 2008 books and on.

My Illustrated Escape Plan.

March 11, 2008

After 6 years of service to Bloomingdale’s Sherman Oaks full-time and later on, part-time, I can finally leave it all behind. To celebrate all that time, my friends and I are going to dinner on my last day of work. So I made a little illustration of me getting outta dodge.
What I used it for:
