Wedding welcome Board

My wife's cousing is getting married next month, so I was asked to whip up a wedding welcome board. I was only given a week and this picture, so this is what I came up with. Hopefully I can add the reference picture soon.
Here you have the two New Zealand stars of Flight of the Conchords. A great musical comedy show on HBO. I've been wanting to draw them for a while.

Me by Mike Giblin

Since my birthday is at the end of the month, I decided to treat myself with a comission by one of my favorite artists, Mike Giblin. As always, he gets a good likeness with super clean lines.
You should definately check out the link on the right hand side of the page. Great stuff.

New Webpage!

This week I finally have the first version of http://www.djeink.com/ up, which I built in flash. I hope to add more and more art as time goes on. Still trying to get used to using flash. Below is a quick sketch I did of Michael Scott from the Office in Illustrator .
Maybe spent between 45 minutes to an hour on this.

English Flashcards

Here are some flashcards I've made to help teach English. I'm trying to spend about 20 minutes on each, and drawing at least 3 a day. These are laminated to keep them clean in class, but it also made them a little harder to scan. Anyways, I've got a whole bunch, so I'll try to keep posting more.

Recent Digital Work

I've been trying to try some new styles in Adobe Illustrator. I'm sure you can notice the range of simple and cartoony to the slightly more representational.
The first pictures are of a friend from high school, and the next set is of some fellow English teachers working in Japan. I definately prefer drawing a single person per picture, because among the subjects some likenesses are better than others. Also keeping a consistent style and level of exageration in the same picture isn't too fun. Im hoping that with time it gets easier.
