Hairstyles, Seattle Met

Some popular modern hairstyle spot illustrations for the Seattle Met. Since doing this I see these cuts everywhere.   Quick black and white spots can be more difficult then they look.  They must be very economic with the lines. A challenge for me. Thanks for looking.

Process, Unsafe Harbor Illustrations Sketches to Final.

Below are some spot illustrations for The Miami New Times.  I have had to find a look doing these quick and a little dirty.  There is not enough time to experiment. So you have to get to solutions quick. I hope they look alright in a week or two.  
Thanks for looking.

Process Spot Illos, Felony Lane

Recent Images for the Miami New Times.  The Article by Kyle Swenson, A National Gang of ID Thieves Started Right Here In South Florida.  The article lays out  an elaborate conspiracy steals peoples identity and passes false checks.  It is a fun read, and reminds me I need to change my password on everything...  Sketches and final art below.

Recent Work, Illustration Process, Miami Cops Misuse Tasers, With Deadly Results

Recent illustration for The Miami New Times!  The work is based on an article by Michael E. Miller  about the rise in (sometimes fatal) taser use by the police department. Great article and topical, considering the recent news about excessive police force. Definitely worth a read.
Art Directed by Miche Ratto at the MNT.  
The images below show the whole development from sketch to final.
Thanks for looking.
