A quick post today.
I apologize for my brevity (and for the quality of these photos - they're awful!), but I realized I hadn't shown you all what Jake has been up to in quite a while, so here's a little peek into one of his many current projects.
I absolutely love these old buildings, and the illustration style in which he's drawing them is awesome. I was oohing and ahhing over the whole thing yesterday while Jake worked on it, and he said he was channeling his inner Tommy Kane, who's another illustrator with a style that Jake and I both think is just so cool. I pretty much fall in love with everything Tommy Kane posts to his blog. In my imagination, Jake and Tommy Kane are going to be friends one day and collaborate on a project. They are both so uber talented.
So anyway... there's a little taste of what Jake's been up to - along with several other projects that I can't post about yet because they're for clients who want things kept under wraps. But tell me, seriously, do you guys love those old buildings as much as I do? I've been playing around with an idea in my head of creating a series of drink coasters based on these city building images. Maybe one building per coaster in a set of four? Colored or that sort of sepia style? Thoughts? Would anyone want to buy something like that? I'd love your feedback!
