Young Parents magazine recently did a revamp look and they decided to give all the new illustrations a new look. So this is the new style I've custom-made for them.

big sketchbook

Here are 3 pages from a big Stillman and Birn sketchbook I started in January 2015. I don't bring this one out of the house as it's too clumsy and heavy to sketch when on the go. I usually sketch in an A5 sketchbook. So drawing with so much more space was an interesting change. However, I still drew small by drawing in small comic panels. The book is always on my work desk and I do a quick sketch in it in between work whenever I have to wait for my computer to start up or when I want to take a small break from client work. There is no cohesive story here. It's all random pictures and story. It's also a mix of various brush pens, fountain pens, watercolour, Japanese screen tones + photoshop.
