The Good Doctor


When the second draft of my book is finished I will be illustrating a childrens book for a local chiropractor. I stopped by today to discuss it with him, pick up a check and take some photos of his face so that in my free time (which I have so precious little of) I can figure out how to illustrate him as a character for the book.

When I finished working on Lucy Clayfoot for the evening I sat down with my digital tablet and rendered a 5 minute sketch of the Doc. It's not great, but it made me laugh so I'm posting it here. I spent about twenty seconds on the little kid and the spine, obviously. The doc is a big guy, so I'm streamlining him a bit, Disney-style.

When I jump into his project in a few weeks I'll post some conceptual stuff here.

I'm also working on four brand new Lucy Clayfoot paintings and those will be on my website, http://www.lucyclayfoot.com/, when they are finished.

Hope everyone is having a great week. The weekend is right around the corner (we all take a collective deep breath and exhale.)
