When Gallery 1988 emailed me their 2012 group show line-up, and an Alfred Hitchcock Tribute show was on it - I screamed a little.
I knew I had to do an illustration of my favorite Hitchcock movie ever
"Shadow of a Doubt"
I love Hitch movies, so so much! It was hard to pick which to do, my favs are: Rear Window, Rebecca, and Rope (Hey look at that, all "R" movies)
Joseph Cotten is one scary dude
Making a digital composite for reference
Working in the studio
On the left, my sketchbook is open to ball-point pen sketches I had done of abstract paintings from the Carrie Moyer show. Moyer's work was so inspiring, even if I don't do abstract work, there was a way to incorporate certain aspects like smoke.
Wish I could see the show in person! So much amazing material to be inspired by!
