Wonder Woman

I promised to do a drawing of WW for Tom Bancroft since he gave me his whole series of Opposite Forces comics :) It's taken awhile but hopefully I can get this done very soon. I'm being a lot precious with it so it's going to take a bit to complete.

Architecture Fun!

I'm drawing buildings this time! I didn't have too much time allotted to draw but I'm sure I'll finish very soon! People are MUCH more fun to draw. Buildings are just sort of painful but I must do it.
It isn't for work or anything.

Favorite Doctor

David Tennant is the best.. in my opinion. But.. they are ALL so good. When I started posting on Jodys site all of you were in love with dr. who, and I had no idea what it was but NOW... yea im a fan. Thanks guys!

Here is one portrait from a series of three that I am finishing up for Kris Fuhr. I still have to make sure I did everything correctly as these are rather important that I not miss any details.

Animal gas

This was for a friend's kickstarter for his book. I'll post a link so you can check it out. The subject was Animal Gas. Not my favorite subject for humans, if you can guess. Fictional gas, I'm all for it. (meaning drawing it and not living anywhere near that) I love the thunder thighs on the rather chunky T Rex with fins in the foreground who resembles no one that I can think of.

Princesses sharing hair tips.

I was thinking how funny it would be if Ariel tried to talk Rapunzel into brushing her hair with a fork. lol So... this is that.

akward personality

I was talking on the phone the other day with someone and they brought up bad news that was really horrible and sad...I dont know why but I dont know how to handle stuff like that very well lol.
I realized half way into the conversation that I was nervously laughing. Man, I felt so bad for the person! I realized I must of been like an akward court jester when told bad news.

Also- Gary Busey!

It's almost as if Gary is hissing because of the sunlight. The last shot was just to show how Crypt Keeper -like this drawing is. Gary is wonderfully beyond what any anatomy text book can define. His facial structure is unlike any other (true for all of us, really- but more specifically true to Gary's head)

Anchorman- A Desk on which to work!

Alright, so...I woke up earlier than I wanted to today. There's a bit to this so, bear with me. I'm staying with friends in Nashville for awhile until I find a place. They were kind enough to set up a desk, Ron's antique drafting table. The light is best in the mornings in this location. I don't have my clamp lamps with me else, this wouldn't be an issue. So, I've been fighting a cold and need to rest this weekend but couldn't NOT draw when I've got good light. I've also been wanting to draw a tricky expression along with a tricky subject (blondes) are tough to capture. I'm glad that I didn't go back to bed. I feel all sorts of awful right now, but, it's worth it to ignore that.

Also, I couldn't seem to locate any dark brown colored pencils and was tempted to hit the Art Store again. They were all hiding in a pencil case, so I need to play with the toys that I have and not go crazy getting new ones.

Preview: as these are not finished just yet. I still need to find some paper that will take a great amount of pencil. Maybe I need to stick with Illustration Board? I think I need to adapt to the sketch paper and stop trying to overload it, which is what is happening. I have not yet set up the scanner which is one of the few things I took with me to nashville. I will set that up once I get finished as I'm still organizing things a bit.

Woodcut in between stages

It's safe to post this now as it's been a year since this was top secret work. It's FISH! have to imagine the water. As I'm in between places and don't have all my illustration gear all sorted out, I am sorry that I haven't been able to post sketches. I will soon so I can feel a part of the blog, once again!

Photo Reference

I've been sketching every day this month, and this is the drawing that I did this morning.
It's from an online resource of model photos I found.

Saturday, March 2, 2013


I did this this morning in my iPad. Done with the Sketchbook Pro app.
A couple of years ago, our pal Cedric Hohnstadt started "March is Sketchbook Month", during which all participants committed to draw a sketch per day during the month of March, and post them online. Some of us have kept up the tradition. So here is my March 2nd sketch.

Yes, it's been a few weeks since I posted here. I've been up to my eyeballs in a move, and some tight deadlines, so my extracurricular sketching has been kept to a minimum. But I am happy to say, I am back!

march madness

first time i saw Tim Hodge do march madness i thought he was a genius and insane at the same time!(and he is!)  so I'm doing my best to do it again for the 2cnd year.  incredible how fast time has gone. my facebook page is having trivia questions everyday for the drawing of the day whoever guesses the answer right first, if you're interested! =) happy march everyone, thanks for inspiring Tim!

This is what we named our wee newborn!
So being a fan of the short film before the recent winnie the pooh, i wanted to draw this for her room.

Almost final

This is a drawing that I did for my church. We have a tv studio in Aurora and this was filmed while I finished the 2nd half of it. We had done two illustrations for our worship team to play on whatever campuses we have (I"m not super sure on that) We had a great time filming it, or at least, that is the opinion that I have. I haven't been in the best of moods lately as there is a lot of stress in my life so I tend to act up, at these times. 

boogie monster

my 2 year old is now the middle child.. figuring out new ways of getting us to notice her. =) haha

Rise of the Guardians

watched the rise of the guardians lately. way better than i thought it was going to be!


Frank, Baby!

So, yesterday, while cleaning my apartment and realizing how cold it was, the song "Summer Wind" came wafting into my head. Maybe that helped me feel warmer somehow, but I still felt the need to connect with "ole blue eyes" in some fashion. Here he is, yet, I cannot picture him without thinking of the imitation/tribute that Phil Hartman did on SNL years ago. I don't mind that version of Frank Sinatra as it makes me laugh.

It worked!

Hey so i decided i try at least one more time to see if something would post! and YAAAAAY it did!

Finished Jackie Robinson!

After a few failed attempts at drawing other things, I decided that I needed to finish this one once and for all /scan and post it. I feel like I'm doing a lot of work with very little payoff these days. It's a little depressing.

Sketch in progress (what a shock)

Hoping to finish this soon, for a friend (among other art that I need to do) I love that generic phrase. Art - I'm doing art.....for ......stuff.............
 and junk..

Brooklyn Dodgers, in Progress

This one is taking a bit longer than a normal sketch would. I'm trying to work in what I can, when I can. My eyes have been red and irritated lately. maybe staring too much at the computer is the issue. I tend not to blink when concentrating so, that might be the cause. I decided to ignore that and get some drawing done. I may be finished with this soon, and then, I'll post it. I may just not, draw up another one that I had my eye on and post that instead.

Jackie Robinson had quite a life worth reading a bit about, if you have the inclination.

Great Scotts

Lowell Issac on Facebook yesterday posted some sketches he'd drawn from doing a random Google search on "Bill." Good idea! I searched "Scott" and sketched these...

Another Wahine Postcard

I get these little pads of watercolor paper postcards at the grocery store. The paper is horrible, and doesn't take the paint well at all. Its too porous, so washes don't work well. But they are great for sending out little sketches like this.
