David Rhoden: Illustration

My illustration work has two major styles. When I first started doing illustration work for clients, I worked in watercolor over pencil. I still love the way it looks, but I stopped doing it because you can't make any corrections at all. If the client wants a change, or if the illustrator wants a change, you have to start over. It's a deadline thing.

More recently, I've been working in a more digital style. I still like the way it looks, but it's a lot easier to change and improve things.

From Louisiana Life magazine. Retirement incentives are luring seniors to the state. I illustrated the same story a year before. This one was a lot better.

WWF bio board

I made these "bio boards" for a client's conferences. The participants are marketing executives, and these illustrations help connect the executive with his or her industry.
