People have used Tarot cards for over 500 years to reveal some hidden information about their lives, their psyches, and their futures. Some people believe Tarot cards may be a map of Jung’s collective subconscious. Others suggest the Tarot conveys occult, esoteric knowledge. Each person projects their own experiences, beliefs, fears and desires on the cards.
I’m working with Matt Stansberry on RUST BELT ARCANA published by BELT in September 2018. Here are a few illustrations for the early chapters.
More information about the book can be found here…
Mostly sketches, scribbles, and rushed landscapes here are some of my favorite pages from my “nature” sketchbook.
I updated the web store with two new commissions and a sketch cover. Check em out! www.downpourcreative.storenvy.com
Here is the first chapter of LOVEBIRDS Book one “The Long Road” written and illustrated by David Wilson. Below the preview is a collection of process pictures with some notes. If you like what you see LOVEBIRDS is on sale at amazon here.
Character studies in sketchbook. None of these are meant to be perfect in any way. I like to do loose, quick sketches trying to capture the feel or look of a character. These drawings are more idea based than art based. Finding wardrobes, appearance quirks, etc.
Below are a couple process pics of making a cover image, ink splatting and color studies over quick layouts.
I was recently commissioned with doing some illustrations for Belt’s Cleveland Guidebook. (Available here).
More heroes in the sketchbook.
New illustration for Floodplainsmag.com on what it means to be native.
