Proposed Skateboard Deck

I recently made this for a friendly local skate company. Putting it together was an epic ten-scan endeavor that, after some clean up and some quick color editing, amounts to what you see below:

The horribly pixelated red line is an estimate of the board's shape and orientation, just to give the drawing some context.

Chatterbox Audio Theater

I was asked to provide an illustration for this years's Halloween program on WKNO's Chatterbox Audio Theater, a task that a very talented friend handled last year. I had lot of fun working with the eerie subject matter and there will hopefully be more to come from this. You should definitely check out the program Halloween night on WKNO-FM. If you miss the original broadcast, it will be available on the Chatterbox Audio Theater site.

Commission Row

Here's the first round of commissions for the travel fundraiser. I'm still taking requests, so send an email to me@derrickent.com if you want to get that drawing you never got around to asking for, but always wanted ;)

Here's my Nova redesign put through an Ancient Egyptian filter. Lots of fun experimenting with hand drawn layers of texture.
Side note: I need to quit making pieces that require large format scanning when I don't have a large format scanner.

Life Over AIDS Exhibition at Caritas Village

I recently submitted a piece for the "Life Over AIDS" show, hosted by Caritas Village. The exhibition is intended is to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS. I drew the image above after reading this list of statistics from The Centers for Disease Control website, which states:

"At some point in their life, approximately one in 16 black men will be diagnosed with HIV..."

That's a pretty scary (and small) number, especially when dealing with HIV and AIDS. I'm part of the aforementioned demographic, so that stat also strikes a personal chord.

For info about Caritas Village and the show, follow this link.

Daily Doodles and Project Sketchbook Preview

I don't want to make any promises, but I think I'm starting to pick up a bit of a sketchbook bug, enough so to motivate more posting. The top two spreads are from today and the bottom three are from my contribution to Project Sketchbook.
