DAVE DICK ILLUSTRATION NEWS
November 13th, 2013
The last couple of months have been very hectic for me. As mentioned in my previous post a few months ago, I started a new job. I am now comfortable enough and capable to be on my own, which is great. The job is also pretty cool, despite the non-routine of it. I am in a much better place than I have ever been, so that makes me happy. And happy me means more art.
I recently uploaded a couple new pieces to the Illustration folder of my portfolio, as well as a sketch to the sketches folder. I’m working on getting a couple more sketches uploaded, as well as a few paintings I have completed recently, so keep a lookout for them. If you would like to see what else I’ve been up to, or get updates on various projects I am currently working on, head over to my FACEBOOK PAGE and like it. I try and post a few times a week.
Oh, my girlfriend and I booked a trip to Jamaica in January, and it’ll be my first time out of the country. Excited doesn’t begin to explain how I feel about it. Cannot wait!
Until next time.

Hey everyone, I am sorry for the lack of updates lately. I recently started a new job, and as I’m a rookie I have been training and what not. Needless to say, it’s taking up a lot of my time. Expect some updates in the very near future, though!

I recently spent the better part of two weeks working on a mural over at The Tortilla Press Cantina in Pennsauken, NJ. The owner, Mark Smith commissioned the piece. Please take a look at it here!
It took much longer than expected due to how large and high up the piece is. Mark had scaffolding installed for me, but they were in sections.. so I was constantly climbing up and down. However, it was fun working on it and Mark enjoys it so much that he is commissioning another mural that is to be completed very soon.

I have added a few new pieces to the Illustration part of my portfolio. One, is titled, ‘A is for Astronomical,’ and the other, ‘D is for Daredevil.’ They are part of the Alphabet series I had previously mentioned. I will add more as they are completed, and perhaps eventually I’ll have a page dedicated to the entire series? I’m not certain when that will be though, as it is going to take quite some time to get them all done. In any case, keep a look out for more of them, and more paintings in the very near future. Hope all is well with all of you.

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday season. Mine was certainly one of the best in recent memory, so I have no complaints. I sold a few more paintings recently, which got me to thinking I should try and sell more of my prints. So, in hopes of doing just that I am giving a 15% discount on all of my prints being sold at my ETSY page. I will be adding a bunch more prints available for sale in the next day or two, so keep a look out. Also, if you like a piece of art here on my site that isn’t available on my ETSY page, just send me a message and if I can*, I’ll make it so. To receive the discount add the coupon code: Discount15 at the appropriate time during check out.
*Some works aren’t my property to sell

For a little over a month or so I have had some artwork hanging at The Tortilla Press Cantina in Merchantville, NJ. About a week ago two of those pieces of work sold. so today I will be replacing those two pieces with two more. If you’re around, please come check them out, as well as the rest of the artwork that is hanging throughout the restaurant. Also, it should be noted that all artwork at the Cantina is 20% off throughout the month of December!

People sure do love giving pet portraits as presents! This doesn’t bother me as I quite enjoy working on them. Keep a look out as Christmas approaches as I will most likely add another one to my portfolio. In other news, I’ve been hard at work on an Alphabet book (A is for Astronomical, B is for Bombardment.. etc) that probably won’t be finished for close to a year. So far I have A-D completed, and I think I’ll upload one or two of them in a day or two. I just want to get some feedback first.
