#44 SOME UNUSUAL AND USUAL ILLUSTRATIONS, PART 3

I have enjoyed sharing about my illustration career. On this blog there are already over 1,500 images. I still have many projects remaining that I could write about. For this post, I have an assortment of jobs that range from early in my career to very recent. On the most recent assignment, I am proud to say it was completed digitally and no original artwork exists. Of course, I did not “paint from scratch” on my computer, but I created my image by assembling elements scanned from prior illustrations and “reconfigured” to match in a unified composition.

I have illustrated many flavors of yogurt for different companies over the course of my art career. I had so many images that I decided to break this up into two posts. What was fascinating for me about illustrating yogurt, were the “trends” I encountered. I illustrated some unusual flavors and often more than once! I even illustrated packages for companies that were competitors.

#34 VERSATILITY WAS MY STYLE

I’ve been sharing a lot of different categories of illustrations that I’ve done over my career. Of course, I still have a lot of paintings left. I decided I’d categorize the ones for this particular post as the illustrations where I needed to do something other than usual photorealism.

#31 WINGING THESE ILLUSTRATIONS

In 1997, I received an assignment from the east coast. I would be illustrating a series of note cards for a publisher called Creative Horizons (no longer in existence).
