Plane Doodle

Drew this on the plane ride down to Austin. In spite of all the turbulence it turned out OK. Just OK nothing great but at least something to post in the meantime. I love the smell of Prismacolor markers and hope that me using it on the flight allowed others to enjoy its alcohol rich aroma as much as I do. Next flight I will bring some paste to eat and share with those who sit next to me.

Feliz Dia de los Muertos!!!...ayer.

Did this one yesterday and didn't have time to post it up. I have always loved the history, shapes, iconography, motifs, and color usage of day of the dead. Enjoy!

Marker, Pro White, Ink...and some magic

Demo for a class I teach. For the most part this image was created using traditional media but the magic mentioned in the title is CS4. It saves me from having to buy an airbrush to hit the background.

My ability to use painter has greatly diminished since my love affair with Photoshop began in 2006. Bottom line, this was fun to paint regardless if it turned out exactly how I wanted it to. Thanks for all the feedback about which one to color.

Smiles on the Metro

I was in L.A. this past week for Siggraph. Taking the metro from Hollywood down to the convention center allowed for some great drawing time.... especially the time I accidentally got on the wrong line. It might sound strange but I would go on vacation just to draw on the metro. I have more drawings, I just need some time to scan em in.

Water Dragon

Drew this the other night before bed. Almost all of my markers started to dry out as I worked on it as you can probably tell. I used thin layers of pro white to create a nice atmospheric perspective and to draw a little more emphasis to the head.

Pink Horned Monster

So pink it will make your eyes bleed.

This was a marker demo I did for class a while back. I have so many images I want to post but never seem to be able to squeeze the time in to scan and upload. Hopefully more to come very soon. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and drawing a lot.

Curves at the beach

I can't wait for warmer weather.

I dedicate this drawing to all the creepy people out there that have inspired me through the years. I often wish I had a discrete way of taking reference photos without getting stabbed in the eye. Thank you creepy people and continue your creeping while I creepliy watch you...in the most non creepy fashion possible.

Been working on this for a week now in my very limited spare time. I heard a rumor/theory back when I lived in South America that Jack the Ripper was actually from Argentina. Interesting twist to the mystery if it is true.

Stuck on Rhinos or How to Abandon Artwork

These first four images are a good example of how I work on an idea until it is abandoned... I often times do a bunch of really crappy drawings like the 4th one down before I really go on to drawings like the 3rd one down. These crappy drawings are usually drawn as fast as I can trying to sort out issues of rhythm, shape and the overall composition. I love finding the perfect shape for the job that iconicly describes what I am drawing. Also not shown here are the attempts I do between the 2nd and 3rd down to tighten up the idea before I find myself married to it. There may be an update on this one before it is completely abandoned.

Below are my tributes to being stuck on Rhinos. Rhinos may even be funner to draw than elephants.

stuck on elephants

Over the holiday break I started drawing elephants and rhinos and haven't been able to stop. More to come. Probably rhinos.

Another Christmas Gone

Work was so busy in December that all attempts to do something holiday themed were thwarted. This is my late measly offering. Merry January....
