Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It's a few days late for Christmas but I figured I'd post it for the holiday season.

Sorry, it's been so long. After moving twice, changing jobs, and doing a ton of freelance I haven't had much time to do my own stuff. This one didn't come as easy as the last and I didn't enjoy it as much. But hey, it's something.

This one came together relatively quick compared to my usual illos. I enjoy the freedom of digital painting because of the ability to experiment without fear. Any critiques are welcome.

A little work in progress. After seeing "How to Train Your Pet Dragon", I couldn't wait to draw again. Besides being a wonderful story it was artistically inspiring. I'm planning on taking this one to final color.

Last night I did a "stream of consciousness" drawing. That's where I don't think about it and just draw whatever flows off the pencil. When I'm completely blocked this is a good way to loosen up. It's also much easier to draw after a day of storyboarding. I like it when my day job serves as a warm up session:)

Threw this one together for valentine's day. Artistic ability always comes through in a pinch. (Especially with us procrastinators) I wanted to mess with it some more but my wife said, if I posted it, I had to leave it alone:)

Monsters, Girls, Superheroes

My favorite things to draw in no particular order are: monsters, girls, and superheroes. Look at most of the animated industry artists and you'll find I'm not alone. I do not enjoy drawing backgrounds. I have to force myself to care about the environment. In my experience I've found that most artists like one or the other and usually specialize. There are some though, that excel at both - I hate those people:)


Okay, this needs to be shared. I just came across a blog that I completely "geeked out" over. Rad Sechrist is a board artist at Dreamworks and gives a mountain of information and trade secrets on how he draws and storyboards. I couldn't stop reading it. It was like crack cocaine for artists. I think it's a true gift to be able to draw but to be able to break it down so that others can learn is priceless. Check it out: Rad How To

I'm doing some story/ situational sketches just as a fun exercise. These are just a couple images that came out as I allowed my imagination to roam. (They don't have anything to do with each other.) I know I'm not saying anything very original here but I figured I'd start off easy.

Dad (final)

Been working on some freelance so I had to take a blog hiatus for a while. Here's the final version of the earlier post titled "Dad".
