Missionary's Downfall

Well, I know it's been a while since I've posted here, but I'm back! I've been crazy busy working on a ton of illustrations, and I'll start showing them as soon as I can.

First up is this, my entry for the Pittsburgh Society of Illustrators' Mixed Drink Illustration Directory, "Drawing Under the Influence." Each artist picked a drink and illustrated it. I knew I wanted to do a tiki drink, but there are so many to choose from, all with really evocative, exotic names. "Missionary's Downfall," though, just suggested a little story to me, so I felt I had to run with it.

The directory will be out later this year, and judging from the level of talent in this thing, it's gonna look great. Special thanks to fellow illustrator Vince Dorse for looking over my piece and letting me know how to make it even better.
