Amplifier Illustration: O, P, and Q

Click the images to see them larger.

   Hey pals! I've been so busy posting gnomes and T-shirts and such that I haven't been able to show you the last few illustrations I've had the pleasure of doing for The Amplifier! So here they are:

Here are some of the thumbnail sketches I did as general examples of directions we could go for the letter "O." We ended up going with the guy below for this letter, but they decided the option that I starred would be great for a later illustration.

  After some notes and feedback, I made some changes and was able to jump into illustrating and refining the image. The crossed line effect in the figure was created by scanning the inside of an envelope. -A cool trick I picked up from Patrick Leger's blog.  

Here is where I sketched out different approaches for our ideas about the letter "P."

Above is an alternate version of the illustration with different colors. We wanted to have the little girl writing the Preamble, so I typed it into Photoshop and then wrote over the letters myself with a "chalk brush" so that they would have a handwritten look.  It was a lot of information to fit into one illustration, but I'm pretty happy with they way we decided to do it.

Here is the final illustration we went with for the letter "P."

More thumbnail sketches! I straight up copy and pasted some from the sketches for "O" and drew some other approaches as well.  We ended up going with the first version with the man and the box.

It was a pretty quick turn around for this one, but since I had completed some pretty detailed sketches the process of actually illustrating the scene didn't take me as long.

I hope you guys enjoyed seeing these three illustrations. Remember, you can pick up The Amplifier in Knoxville, TN and support the homeless.
Have a great weekend! God bless!

p.s. Don't forget that today (Friday Nov. 9th, 2012) is the last day you can tell me your choice for which Kit the Cat T-shirt design I should have made! Check out the previous post! ;)

Possible T-shirt, Listening to Living Legends, and NEW ONLINE STORE!

   Friends and Fiends! I need your help. I'm thinking seriously about making a t-shirt to sell to you all online. Would you be interested in one of these as a T-shirt? If so, which one/variation/combination? Your help is much appreciated!!!


I had the pleasure of attending an awesome free seminar held by the National Cartoonist's Society at Watkins College in Nashville, TN over the weekend. It was very good with incredible speakers! If you want to hear more about the experience and see some examples of the artists who spoke and their art, head over to my Tumblr blog, PABDESK.


I am very excited to announce to you all that I have begun setting up my NEW ONLINE STORE MART SHOP over on Big Cartel! It is a great place for you to buy my original art. Anyone need Christmas gifts? This is a great way to get special, personalized gifts for a good price. I think you will dig it! Check it out now and you may notice some SALES that are going on!

Thanks for stopping in and helping out today, pals! God bless!

EDIT: I'm probably making the cut off Friday for suggestions on which T-shirt of Kit the Cat to have made so make sure to let me know which one you think is best!
