Nutrisystem has a members section that allows users to add weight loss recipes to the section. Unfortunately, not every user would upload a photo of their food and even if they did the images weren’t of the best quality. Often the team would try and find a piece of stock photography that was close to what the recipe was trying to make, on occasion this was impossible. So for those images a placeholder was needed. I was asked to do some illustrations of several different categories that the recipes fell into.

The Mad Scientist Edition

The Mad Scientist Edition

Oddly, with all of the holidays you don’t get work off from this week I really couldn’t come up with anything specific to draw for either Chinese New Year or Valentines day. I did happen to hand out all but five of my business cards this week, so I knew the best course of action was to get back on track with that endeavor. So this week I bring you, me, as a mad scientist!

Mad Scientist may seem like an odd way to identify myself, but I didn’t want these business cards to just be me hanging out in my t-shirt. Much like the Bearded Lady I wanted to tell people about my interest. And while science is absolutely one, so is horror. Mad Scientist are one of my favorite sub-genres of horror; regular folks who have let their ambition and self interest go wrong. I love the ways in which sci-fi and horror use allegory to entertain us while making us think and filling us with dread.

The Bearded Lady Edition

Bearded Lady

As I wind down my last weeks at my current assignment I realized I have about five business cards left. Since I never really liked the last batch I put together I figured now would be an ideal time to do a new set. I really wanted to highlight my illustration skills, and since, for the last two years I’ve done a self portrait type business card when sending out my holiday cards I thought it would be fun, and hopefully not too narcissistic, to do a series of business cards featuring me! I really wanted to do a set that highlighted my favorite things, and I would be able to dress in virtual costumes!

For this first week I decided to continue the olde-timey circus idea that I started work on two weeks ago with me as a bearded lady.

The Carrie Diaries

The Carrie Diaries

I actually created this as a Christmas present for my sister. She’s working on the Sex in the City prequel, The Carrie Diaries, in their wardrobe department. (Which means everyone should watch it. Or at least tell your friendly neighborhood Nealson house/stream it on Hulu while you’re washing dishes. It debuts tonight, Monday, January 14 at 8PM, 7 central on the CW.)

Don’t Call Him a Hipster Strong Man

Strong Man

I was actually working on another drawing all this week, but it’s morphed several times into something highly unsuccessful, so we’ll get back to that… sometime.

For this week, however, I wanted to do something that was fun and could be done in an evening. So come one, come all! See the amazing strong man!!
