The Postcard

Ahhh, the art of self promotion. I am starting an illustration that I intend to print up as a postcard. That way, I can send it around to Art Director types and they will see my ability to get postcards made.

This is really in it's messy rough stage, but I wanted to show the beginning. My scene is a little boy in bed, reading a book with his flashlight. His audience is a collection of some pretty awesome imaginary friends, including monsters, robots, knights, pirates, and the three little pigs. I have no idea how fast this will go, as I can really only work on it in my spare spare time.

Happy Wednesday!

"Robots That Date Back To The Mayans!"

Here is as far as I am gonna get on my Drawergeeks this week. I am just glad I am turning something in.

We are staring Friday right in the face. Good times.
I hope everyone has an awesome long weekend.

Indiana Jones and The Temple of the Bots

This is how much I was able to do on my Drawergeeks submission tonight. It's still a work in progress but I hope to flesh it out more tomorrow evening.

I sketched this out, and slapped on the color in Painter.

Black Skull Troll - 100 Posts

I have done a Monday drawing, with minutes to spare! Yes, it's only a Black Skull Troll, but it's somethin. These trolls are the little guys who come pull ideas out of your butt when you run out. They use their magic wands to extract the magic.

And 100 posts. Hey, that is cool.
And with that, I am off to bed.

Run Puggles Run...

It's Friday, and this is all I got. It has been a rough week. Deadlines. Lack of sleep. Puggles. They have all contributed to my headache. But, today IS Friday, and it will be nice to be at home for a couple of days.

My goal next week on top of everything else, is to do a drawing a day for the blog. It's good to have goals.

I wasn't able to take this as far as I wanted, but I am happy to have something to turn in for Drawergeeks this week. Either Wolvie is all pumped up after taking down a giant robot, or he sat in some really cold snow. The background elements need to be fleshed out a lot more, but like I said... no more time allowed.

Happy Friday.
And don't forget Mother's Day!

It has been a while huh?

I am frankly busy as a beaver, building seven dams at once.
Major book project.
Finishing touches on the pages of my comic.
Painting a room pink.
Day job.

I realized yesterday, that I do talk sometimes like all of these are bad. NO WAY. It is amazing that I am so busy.
I just think I do a poor job of balancing sometimes. Anyway... enough blogging from me. I wanted to share a couple of pieces.

This guy is an idea I had for a "Skull Ghost Pilot/Pirates In Space" story. Could be cool. Part skeletal goodness, part robot (of course.)

And this is Puggles again. Puggles has self esteem issues. Or should I say HAD self esteem issues. He has a new car now. For today, that fixes everything. (I don't know. One day I will try to explain Puggles.)

That is all today. So glad I got to post. I need to really get rolling on the book stuff, squeak out a Drawergeeks as therapy, and go finish my Mother's Day shopping. See ya!

A Friday Picnic

Happy Friday to all. I am showing you another rough page of "The Picnic" story! My goal next week is to start doing a rough drawing per day. Lets see how that goes down...

Have a good weekend.

A Page From "The Picnic"

Yeah, I am alive, but moving slower now. I have been working on this Parable story for the past month, as well as doing the day job thing and being Daddy. While I can't really show you much on my story, I will post a random page or two over the next week. These are not fully cleaned up, and need a bit of work. Naked pages.

So, on the news front... I have been given a really great freelance book project to tackle. As usual, not many details for you, but this will be a great opportunity to design characters and illustrate a full book. The bad news is that I can't really post anything from it, so I will have to start doing a "blog drawing of the day" or something so I can stay in the blogging loop.

That is all
