Hope that you had a great winter. We did.
I've been working away at many deadlines, most of them artistic, but also a few commercial projects to make things lively. My biggest project has been a wide, three-page pull-out cover for the National Museum of Racing
's "Hall of Fame" magazine. It commemorates 150 years of racing at Saratoga with portraits of seven of its most famous horses - and its three founding fathers!
This image is the cover -- the first third of the poster -- you'll have to stay tuned to see which horse belongs to the flying tail that leads you into the next panel. Needless to say, with seven horses, seven jockeys, and three founders against the historical panorama of the Saratoga Race Track, there's been a lot of drawing going on around here. And then there's my own 2013 poster called "Dead Heat," which will be ready in early June.
Meanwhile, we are off for a brief, but well earned, vacation. I'm looking forward to sketching anything but horses for a couple of weeks! Hope your spring is filled with color and light. All the best.
