Fourth One…

Number four of 150.

This project was divided into 10 batches of 15 images each. Most batches had two little kids aged 4-6, 6 kids ages 7-9, 3 aged 10-13, and four adults. Most of the batches focused on a specific racial/ethnic group in order to ensure that we included a full range of ages and gender expressions for each racial/ethnic group, especially for the kids. We didn’t want to risk leaving anyone out.

As you can see, this guy is supposed to be black, age 7-9, thin body type, with a male gender expression, wearing glasses.

A black boy aged 7-9 stands with one hand raised as if waving.  He's wearing plaid shorts, a turquoise hoodie, and sneakers.  He's also wearing glasses.

Boy Leaning on Windowsill

Here’s a recent commission for rap artist, David Smith, who goes by the stage name Dave 3X3. This image is to be used for an upcoming album cover. He was wonderful to work with.

Good luck to you, Dave!

This image (above) was based on an earlier image (below) from 2013 with the same character. You’ll notice these aren’t drawn in my typical style. The first was one of my experiments, playing with different ideas. Then I matched the style (and refined it just a little) for the new commission. I like playing with different ideas, and sometimes they even lead to new opportunities.

And always, I am accepting commissions!
