I miss grapefruit. Doesn't it just figure? The only medicine I take and it has to have that limitation. It could be worse. Stop whining Jim. At least you made it to the World Series of doodling. Well...in my mind anyway.
Day 15 of Inktober2017 - Mysterious.
I felt like drawing birdhouses and this came out in my large Moleskine.
My 9 year old Boston Terrier, Annabelle is a bright light in my life and she shows up in my work often. Best Christmas gift EVER!!!
Don’t cry over spilled milk unless you are Mr. Milk of course.
When my robots are happy, I'm happy.
Summertime. Who doesn’t love crabs?
Sandy is a dreamer. Her favorite dream is the beach. Doodling on iPadPro with Procreate.
The Toast of the Town. Too bad the weather had to turn just when things were heating up.
Morning sketch. So I was waiting for a go ahead on a 20 illo project. One of the illustrations in the project is a pair of “Chucks” so in the meantime I did a much crazier than they will be wanting version. Sometimes you just have to please yourself without all the boundaries.
There are some things I’m so grateful for in 2018 and then there was a lot of stuff that I would love to go away. So this is my farewell art. There’s nothing random in this doodle but I’ll keep most of it to myself. Let’s hope for a way better 19.
Fruits have insecurities too. From the series "Forlorn Fruits"
Part of a series of drawings following characters on a journey through strange and chaotic zones of a gigantic metropolis. I really enjoyed using the Sakura brush pen for this one.
Sometimes I just have to draw hungry marshmallow slurping monsters.
Even monsters have feelings. No one wants the good times to end.
This is the kind of stuff that comes out of me when I'm really hungry.
Here comes the doodle caravan. It's getting close. Can't wait to see what everyone uploads.
Day 8 Inktober 2017 - crooked.
Inktober2018day12-Whale. I’m using inktober to explore and improve my techniques. This time I wanted to try using more crosshatching. I’m happy with the result. Also, at first I had nothing for the whale prompt but it’s rewarding when you push through the dead space and a concept or idea comes to my head that I can be excited with.
Because we share a common bond over Bob's Burgers :) .. 140 lb. Rough watercolor paper .. crappy AC Moore brand watercolors and micron ink
“I Never Noticed The House Was On Fire” This is a painting for an upcoming group exhibition about memories. When I was a kid I grew up in a household where my parents were functioning alcoholics. They gave me toys, put me in front of the tv, and sent me outside to play to keep me distracted from what was going on. When I look back almost all of my childhood memories revolve around these things. I became obsessed with these imaginary worlds and I learned to draw by copying my favorite cartoons and characters from children’s books. It was not until I was much older, that the truth could no longer be hidden from me. The imaginary world of cartoons and books kept me shielded from the harsh realities of home. As I grew into an adult that form of coping grew with me as I created my own imaginary places inspired by the ones I loved as a child. A healthy place to escape.
Colored pencil on toned tan paper
Home Is Where The Hurt Is. Gouache on Arches watercolor paper. A painting for all those who came up with crappy home lives.
Working on characters.
Rabbits thorns and moons. I usual don’t know where I’m going when my pen touches down. The illustration took me for a ride and I’m not gonna lie. I kinda enjoyed it. As it progressed, it felt like an album cover so why not?
Trade show poster I just delivered finals on titled: The UnBooth. My kind of trade show booth.
Comic about love.
