I hadn’t realized that it had been 2 years since I posted anything here. My life has been a bit of a blur for the past 2 years. The birth of my son and my current job both started within a month of one another. Both have been time consuming and fulfilling in so many ways, but they left very little time for any personal artwork.
While I haven’t had time for much personal work, I have created some illustrations for work that I’ve truly enjoyed. This character Salty, which I created for Delta Sonic, served as the villain in our annual #SaltBites campaign. He represented all the terrible things that can happen to a person’s car in the winter. I wrote a 3 part comic to give him a bit of a back story. Here’s the first part.
Here is the re-launch of Oliver and Benjamin. I decided to work in watercolor, which is a medium I love, though I become a bit obsessive about it. I hope everyone enjoys the re-launch of the comic. I wanted my passion for the comic to come across in this piece. I hope that continues to come across in future strips. -Dave
Here are the other two Delta Sonic billboards. They can be seen throughout Western and Central New York and in Chicago. If all goes well, I’ll have more up over the course of the year.
These are three billboards I worked on for Delta Sonic Car Wash. They are part of an advertising campaign for spring and summer clean up. These are the first illustrations I’ve had published anywhere, so it’s a surreal feeling.
I must apologize for the lack of updates to Oliver & Benjamin. I have begun to rework the series in watercolor, which is an extremely rewarding and time consuming medium. In the midst of re-working the strip, my son was born! So needless to say, our life here has been a bit hectic. Work on the strip is ongoing and will be coming soon. Thanks for understanding and in the meantime, checkout my other strip, Barely There. -Dave
