Illustration & Multimedia


Illustration; Portrait


This drawing was done using pencil, pen and ink, colored pencil, and Prismacolor markers. The basis for the drawing was a photograph from a magazine spread, from which I deviated a bit with some creative liberty. The image used was really just as a base from which to build.

I first created the base sketch using a light 2h pencil. I then worked up a bit into some darkness using an HB pencil. As I did this, I also started laying a light layer of a flesh-like color of colored pencil. I continued this process until I had a basic flesh base.

I then started bringing some black ink in, in order to provide a dark element to make the image a bit more dynamic. It also helped to start giving some shape to the hair, which was quite dark.

In order to give the drawing a more “rustic” sort of a feel, I went back in and made things a bit grainier, by overlaying another layer of colored pencil wax, and then light hatching it with pencil. This chips away a little at the colored pencil, producing small granules of difference in color. It makes it look a bit more “rough”, which to me, seems a little more visually interesting to look at. Otherwise, you might as well be looking at a photograph.

In retrospect, I think I overworked the “roughness” a bit too much, resulting in a less professional looking image. In the thumbs of the progress, you can actually see a higher quality version (in terms of technique), where less flaws are present. Some flaws were revealed through this process of refining over and over, which, in the end, was not necessarily a benefit. In future attempts of a similar nature, I will avoid making similar mistakes.

Additionally, I left a few areas somewhat “unfinished”, in order to give it a bit more visual dynamism. I think that the lack of definite solidity gives more character to the subject, and allows the viewer a little more breathing room for imagination.

Who I Am

Jon Day

Graphic Designer. Web Designer. Web Developer.

New England, United States

With over 10 years of experience, I've learned a lot. I've also learned how to take that experience, and apply it to your project.


I'm a 33 year old graphic designer, web designer and web developer. I grew up in the Tampa Bay area of Florida, but am currently living in New England. I have over 10 years of experience in the industry, having worn many hats. I'm currently working independently, creating high quality experiences in web, video and print. I enjoy challenges that force me to find innovative solutions, and opportunities to flex my creative muscles. My personal mantra is "where there's a void, there is space to create".

When I'm not working, I enjoy playing guitar, wood-crafting, and creating various things. I enjoy a good steak, beer or scotch, and enjoy a wide range of music, film, and literature. I also have a fairly in-depth knowledge of art history and philosophy, as well as a novice interest in physics.



For the past 6 years, I've been working independently as a web designer and developer, while also providing various graphic design services. Throughout this time, I've built a large base of experience involving the designing and building of website and web applications. However, I also have experience in more traditional roles, which have helped to shape my foundation...
