The title of this blog is a little bit deceiving. This illustration is not exactly shiny new. I've actually been noodling around on this one since around mid-December.
However, for some reason, it taken me until now to get it fine tuned enough to show off. ;)
Anyway -- while I'll be the first to admit that this piece re-treads over a little bit of conceptual territory (check out the blog header ;), I was pretty excited about experimenting with new digital techniques here.
I started this piece (which s currently entitled "Life Drawing") shortly after I received my beloved digital tablet over X-mas holiday. Needless to say, the tablet has definitely opened up my work in terms of texture and shading possibilities (see image detail below).
Very exciting stuff. ;)
Even though this was basically a 'test illustration' that I did while getting used to my new tablet, I'm pretty happy with the end result. I can't wait to see what else I can accomplish with my new gadget. ;)

Anyway, lets check out a couple of my many favorite live moments with Pete, Rog, John, and Keith :
