PHIT Sketches ("Monologues" and "Guilty Pleasures")

Recently I saw 2 (countem' - two!) shows on the same evening at PHIT, which means I should get an award or something. Actually my lovely boyfriend should get an award for volunteering to go grab me more cider between the shows (he doesn't drink...and I was wearing heels. Isn't he a gentleman!?) Anyway, I was happy to be drawing some of these folks for the second or third time. Some sketches came out good, some didn't, as always, but that's why it's called practice. ' All the sketches were completed quite quickly, most under 5 minutes, with a ballpoint pen. The exception to this would be the drawing of the Mean Wendy Band, which was about 10-15 minutes I believe. There might be three shows in here, I'm not really sure.

As always, you guys are welcome to pull any of these images down to use on facebook or whereever, but please be sure to link to my website either in the description or you can leave the watermark that I have inserted on the pages. (www.katiehaire.com) I'll be at a show tomorrow night ("Brought to You By...") and am looking forward to seeing some familiar faces there.

Flannelpalooza Chuckoachella - Comedy Event

Below are a few shots of my illustration for the comedy event "Flannelpalooza Chuckoachella," a mock-grunge band event in Philadelphia. The illustration was spotted on philly.com, and t-shirts were made. It's always fun to do an illustration and then play "eye-spy" around the city looking for it.Screen Shot 2015-06-14 at 12.22.50 PM Screen Shot 2015-06-14 at 12.36.21 PM FORWEB_flannel_72dpi

The Shining Book Jacket

Shining book coverFinally finished my book cover, about to lay out a sample page from the book. I did all the illustration and text layout for this hardcover book jacket. I love the way the twins came out, and I think the maze motif in the background adds a nice theme to the piece, even though there is no maze in the book! (fun fact!) This book (and movie) are 2 of my favorite pieces of art so I am proud to say that this piece is finished. The idea for it came to me while I was falling asleep and I am happy I woke up to write a cryptic email to myself, reminding me about my color vision and illustration ideas for the project, which haven't changed since that night. I gotta do this more often!

Personal Project: The Shining

The Shining is one of my favorite books and movies. I know they are very different, but I wanted to combine them into one object that I feel would satisfy Kubrick AND King. I assume this to be no small feat, but alas, I will try!

This is a personal project of mine, I don't have copyright to any material, consider it educational purposes. Here is an update of a couple shots I have so far. I will be updating my blog with the finished product, sketches and all.
