Proactive Hitman

Mixed Media and Photoshop 11.25” x 11.25” Strathmore 500 Board

This is an assignment I did in pencil, pen, water color, gouache acrylic and oil for Kent Williams' Image and Idea class. For this assignment we had to either create a spread or a partial spread for a short story in a magazine article he had just illustrated. Of course we didn’t get to see his piece ahead of time and had to interpret the story for ourselves. The story is basically a crime thriller mystery about a proactive hit-man who collects stamps as a hobby (notice the eyes are stamps with cropped 100$ bills in them) and goes out looking for a new client in order to pay the bills. The wrench is the weapon used at the climax of the story.

Hey, John! Thanks for your comments. Although I am trying to continually educate myself, I am not back in school. This piece was done and posted a few years ago when I was in school. I'm working over at Disney Internet Media group in North Hollywood as an Illustrator for Family.com. I utilize the IRC and DCP library a lot for my projects which is why you see me around the office a lot still. Well, catch you later and See you around!
