Every projects starts the same way. We listen to your needs. We ask questions, and then we think through possible solutions. Initial analysis of the problem is one of the most important steps in the process. Think of us as a member of your team. We do more than provide a pretty picture - we shape the information presented to suit your goals for that image. After this, we will develop pencil sketches. These may be initial concept roughs or more finished sketches breaking a process into steps. Whatever is needed for your project. Then begins a series of proofing. We make edits and revisions in our sketches until it's right, and only then do we move on to color. Color images are sent for final approvals before the finished image is delivered. All files are high resolution and print ready.

This pose was drawn with several hand positions, but ultimately we settled on this pose which shows a second steadying hand above the baby.

I was assigned to do a piece on pain. Not a specific pain, but something to show the generalized nature of pain. I had multiple comps...many sketches. And we decided on a direction. Plain, simple and to the point. I finished, and then the job was cancelled. And now there is another type of pain.
