Breakfast musings: three works in progress, mulling numerous possibilities. Which one will I attack first?
Three Works In Progress: one scratchboard, sketchbook portrait ideas for
Rene Secretan and an elusive female gouache. The framed scratchboard of a
Jesse James gang member, at bottom, is there for inspiration.
Went into the office to work on the big croquet photo package (10-pages!). Lots of moving parts. Have to nail it down today, since the staff is off tomorrow and Friday and we go to press a week from tomorrow. Had to postpone final layout until Monday. Sent first two pages down to Dan The Man so he can design splash page. Cutting it tight but it's a very ambitious piece.
Went home for lunch and took another pass at the morning scratchboard:
Daily Whip Out: "Vincent van Gunfigher #2"
This came about as a result of a scribbled idea from my sketchbook:
Daily Whip Out: "Vincent van Gunfighter Cover Type Sketch"
Robert Ray is choosing distressed-wood-block type to reverse out of scratchboard. Here's what we came up with for a rough cover comp:
Cover rough of "Vincent van Gunfighter"
I love this stuff.
