This is a late entry into Illustration Friday's "ghost" topic. After looking at some of the postings I wanted to try my hand a more human haunt.

Phoenix Ghost IF

This is a remake of a previous posting of "Phoenix". I made the old bird at the bottom a little more ashen. I had thought to draw a traditional autumn haint. But the Phoenix tale, rising from the ashes of the consumed parent bird, seemed to fit the theme so well.

Four Ways

This is the design for my submission to the New York fundraiser, "Postcards from the Edge". I'm working on applying beads to it right now which changes the whole feeling. I like this palette of colors.

Happy Halloweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen!

This is a paper cut-out made lifesize from an old greeting card. If I'm ambitious he may get some more bones to hang out with. I'm hanging the finished product in my front door window.

I read La Cucaracha every day. When I had the idea of a soylent green/guacamole connection, I thought of Pepe and Chepe delivering it. Tough thing is is that I love good guacamole.

Trouble IF Charles Roberts

This is one of my most somber illustrations. The figure is based on a photo of Charles Roberts, the man who killed the Amish schoolgirls. There were sides to his personality which no one could see.

Father and Son

I'm trying to find a benefit image for an AIDS Service Agency which specializes in working with families. It's tough to find the right contrast in a baby's skin. The bit of a moustache and patch give the almost soft looking father more of a masculine feel. I've seen babies hold on like this.
