Here's a few pieces from one of my recent projects. Back at the end of July, I was hired by DAN FINNERTY of THE DAN BAND to create the cartoon illustrations for their new comedy Christmas music CD booklet. The booklet is called HO: A DAN BAND CHRISTMAS COLORING BOOK. There are 10 interior illustrations to be colored...each one representing a song on the CD. Each illustration is accompanied in the coloring book with the song's lyrics. The full-color coloring book cover is shown above with the coloring page art for the songs HO HO HO...CHRISTMAKWANZAKAH...GET DRUNK & MAKE OUT THIS CHRISTMAS and PLEASE DON'T BOMB NOBODY THIS HOLIDAY. I thought it would be fun to mimic Paul Coker, Jr.'s "Rankin/Bass" lettering style on the booklet's cover. Click here for THE DAN BAND's MySpace can order the CD, HO: A DAN BAND CHRISTMAS, from their MySpace page! You'll see a banner to click on to order. Order today! THE DAN BAND is currently on tour and appeared in the feature films STARSKY & HUTCH (with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson) and OLD SCHOOL (with Will Ferrell).
