The Whale and the Kitten Illustration

Hey everyone just wanted to update the blog with a project I did this month for someone I work with named Kelsey!! I remember talking to her before and she had a long long long list of favorite things. I love a challenge and I love combining things that usually don't make sense together, sensibly so I let her put a list on Facebook and told her I could create something!

Here is the list of things she came up with:

I had the idea in my head and made a sketch. It didn't take me long to render it in Illustrator. This is my creation:

A sophisticated whale with a mustache, in love with a princess kitten floating along on a lily pad with an owl soaring about with a heavy anchor in claws.

Mr Whale in all his mustach-ed glory!

The portly yet approachable princess kitten!

It is one of the most classic love stories between a whale and a cat ever to be illustrated. She loved it (and so do I) and she also decided to frame it with some rainbow matting:

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Whitest Kids U Know at the Troc 2012

Hey everyone! Just a few days ago, well last weekend, I went to the comedy group THE WHITEST KIDS U KNOW at the Trocadero in Philadelphia, Pa. I have been a fan of the comedy group for an unbelievable amount of years. When I was going to school for Graphic Design one of our Photoshop projects was to create a poster by scanning materials in our bags to advertise a fictional grand opening of a comedy club called, "Eating Dirtm" use our favorite comedian.

Of course I picked the Whitest Kids!

It's quite the throw-back but I still like doing a lot of collage work and still am proud of this poster even though it's eons old!

Anyway, onto the show! It was a lot of fun and I got a lot of great photos. Me and my brother were the first people in so we had a front row seat!

The merchandise was slightly out of my price range though and it snowed allllll day. We started driving home almost immediately to avoid the big storm. But I would definitely go see them again!

Hope everyone has a great week!

Saber - Illustrated Portrait

Hey everyone! Just wanted to post a quick entry of another one of my freelance pieces I did for a client. Her name was Saber and she wanted an illustrated portrait of herself. She sent me several photos of herself so I was able to create something truly realistic yet still within in my signature "Penningt00ns" style!

Here is the piece:

Wow!! I think it turned out great!! I even added her name in pink and black text at the bottom.

The real challenge was combining a lot of the features in each photo. Her make-up, hair style and piercings came out just the way she wanted!!

Remember if you are interested in your own illustrated portrait from a photograph or any other design work by me, just check out the contact page on !! Hope everyone has a good day!!
