Jerry Dowling: More Bengals' Book Teasers...

From Jerry: Here are the front and back covers of Jerry's new book about drawing the Bengals. The book contains 262 drawings. It's a timeline of the Bengals two Super Bowl teams which nobody under the age of forty remembers. I based it on Star Wars because it is an old far, far away time in another millenium.

Fairy Godmothers

These are two of my paper doll fairy godmothers. Now I'm thinking I'll make them into cards or put them on bags or something like that.

Northwestern University marching band alumni illustration

A quick little piece for the cover of the Northwestern University Marching Band alumni magazine. I hope I didn't offend anyone here who may have gone to the University of Indiana.

Comp for the next Marathon poster...I think I want to paint it fairly loosely - can't decide just yet, need to sit and look at it a while. Feedback...? Type & borders are placeholders for now & perspective will probably change....

Manifest Gallery: Nude

The opening of Nude at Manifest Gallery is this Friday (August 16) from 6-9 pm.
From the promotional images I've seen, this looks like another great show. If any of you have never been to a Manifest opening yet, I strongly encourage you to start with this one!

Snow Dragon - Day One

Started this the other day and trying to fit it in between other work. It is a speculative piece for a joint project with a musician friend of mine.

hello everyone!!

Just wanted to say Hey! everyone. My name is Michael Dougherty. It was nice to meet some of you yesterday at lunch...some for the first time others from years ago. I was one of the original members from back in the 90's so its nice to come back and meet new people and catch up with some older members.

I am an illustrator who still specializes in airbrush(yes...airbrushing is still alive and I have been a free lance illustrator for over 25years. I also own Anything Airbrushed plus located in Tri-County Mall. I have 2 full time and 3 part-time artists that work on everything from T-shirts to Murals and all things in between....all with an airbrush.

Here are 2 things "Cincinnati related" that were originally done for the 2007 WestFest poster but turned out to be to "Controversial" for this "WestSide" there were turned into t-shirts. They are acrylic airbrushed with colored pencil on illustration board

Glad to be back
