Vendor as Lender

"Vendor as Lender," American Medical News, May 25, 2009

(click to enlarge)
For this article, about medical suppliers who offer financing for their wares, the art director asked me to portray the vendor as if he was a car salesman. "Sleazy but not too sleazy."

Thanks, Jennifer!

Last year Pablo Correa invited me to participate in a book he was working on. 'Just For You,' a collection of art done by artists for their loved ones - strictly non-commercial. I'm dying to get my hands on a copy to see what other artists might have created for their friends & family. Here are links to the book's official site, blog, and you can now purchase the book through Index HERE.

**Portrait of Roxey (Queen of the House), done for mom.

Oh boy.

I came across the Awkward Family Photos blog, and thought, "OMG, it's a Kiersten Essenpreis panting come to life!". I believe these suits are made from real muppet skins. Sorry to throw something up so un-art related, but I gotta say, this is sort of inspiring.
