I just finished up the project for Malaria No More. I have to admit there were several times when I really thought I wasn't going to be able to complete it. I compare this project to running a marathon, and I definitely hit "the wall" at about number 18. There were ones that I loved , others I "completed" and a few that drove me crazy (er),but all in all I'm happy with the overall work I did for this one. 25 digital paintings in 16 days, not a pace I want to duplicate very often, but it tells me that I can if called upon I can do it. I'm including photos from the evnt in Hollywood where some of the celebs received their pictures.

Oh, What A Month !!!

I have one of those months that artists dream of. It started with a request to do paintings of Adrian Grenier 0f "Entourage" and Vincent D'Onofrio from "Law and Order" I didthe film festival that they attended, got to meet them (both really nice guys) and got autographed copies of my pieces. The highlight of my night was meeting Bill Plympton, one of the greatest cartoonists/animators/caricature artists and one of my heroes . He was AMAZING !!
Fast forward 1 week, I am contacted by a group called Malaria No More. They want me to do 25 paintings that will be given to various celebrities as thank-you gifts. The list includes John Mayer, Orlando Bloom, Ed Helms, Jeff Probst, Josh Groban, Elizabeth Banks and on and on.
Well I got the first 17 done in 5 days, 5 loooooooonnnnnggggg days. I have 8 more to go but I'm getting closer to the finish line. They had their dinner leat night in Hollywood and they presented some of the stars their pics and I now have the photos to prove it.
Like I said, what a month. I wonder if this is what Jason Seiler's life is like every month ??
Below are some of the pics including Adrian's and Vincents.

Yes. I'm still alive

I know, I know, where have I been ? Well I'd love to come up with just one reason, but Life has been crazy. Between a series of delays with the book I illustrated to lots of various projects for clients, and more live events than I care to count , I have been more than little bit busy. But here are a few pieces I've been able to fit in between projects. I'm hoping to be much more active now that I have a little more time.
