|The Quiet-D Illustration Series. By Travis Simpkins|
From 2009 to 2012, I made innumerable portrait sketches of cast members of Quiet Desperation... a reality sitcom co-created by my friend, Rob Potylo, which celebrates and fosters artists and all forms of creativity in the Boston area. About 50 or so of the portraits I made ended up in this illustration series, which I created around the time of the show's first Network TV deal. The series returned to the web for awhile after that short-lived venture, but big news came this past weekend. Congrats to Rob and his talented crew on signing with CBS to bring Quiet-D back to the TV airwaves starting in April.
