My LOST Series

Here's a quick set of illustrations I did over the weekend. The drawings are somewhere between caricature and portrait, mostly because of the time crunch in getting all 13 finished and then the 2 maps. And they had to be used as icons throughout the supplement, so the readability factor was important. I love the show a lot and can't wait for the final season, but it's a difficult show to explain to anyone. The story almost makes zero sense...but, it's fun. It's no "Battlestar Galactica" is all I'm sayin'!

Hi Janet!

I did these for The Star-Telegram in Ft. Worth. Thank God Cynthia called. I'm actually surprised she had any jobs to assign with their tight money situation right now. I got $1000 for it and was up for a couple of days while Max was here doing them and researching everything. I caught Max's cold though from being up so late. He was so funny and comforting to have around. What a great feller!

I sure wish EW would call me. I'll probably put some of these heads on my website. Thanks for your glowing review.

Hey Nic! Thanks for the great comment and compliment. I love the old 3/4 pose. I feel like it looks more like the person if it's in 3/4 mode. I've been meaning to go over to your blog too. I think I'll go there.....now!

If only these would lead to more work. It's pretty bleak out there. Jeepers!
