Directory of Illustration ad

I decided to advertise in the 2011 Directory of Illustration, and this is the ad I created for it. Basically, I already had the Ant piece, and I liked the way it bled off the page, and so I wanted the rest of the art I was going to put on it to do the same thing. that's why I created the Superhero Family piece and the Animal Basketball piece, to fit on this page.

The Directory is this really heavy hardcover book with glossy pages and around 600 illustrators participate each year. The book gets sent to ad agencies and other places all over the world. There used to be competing directory companies but I think the DOI is the last man standing at this point. I'm excited for the clients I hope this ad will bring!

Fish book color

Had some time so I colored this piece. Original post for this is here.

Animal Basketball

Another self-promotion piece. I thought it would be funny to see the small animals have to take on the giant ones.
