I was recently asked to participate in Ten Paces and Draw, a collaborative illustration project to bring illustrators and designers together. Each month, participants are asked to interpret a sketch submitted to them by other participants: I received a sketch depicting Jeff Goldblum drinking martinis with raptors, so I decided I would include the raptor in shadow-puppet form, subtract the martini, and throw a fashion element into the final piece. I enjoyed this project immensely as it led me to work in a way I haven't in the past, and provided fuel for future work.
In addition to receiving a sketch, I submitted my own also in the Jeff Goldblum category (shown below). In my sketch, a young Jeff Goldblum is annoyed by a fly circling his head.
