Bird Watching...

Yes I saw Jurassic World.  Yes I loved it.  I appreciate when a movie acknowledges that they can still be fun.

Afterwards I started messing around with doodling Raptors in my sketchbook.  The first attempts were in keeping with my recent obsession with trying to get good with colored pencils.  I'm most happy with this attempt.  Enjoy.

Happy Mummy's Day - er - Father's Day

Have you ever drawn something that comes out so much better than you thought that you instantly panic, thinking that you've seen the image before and that you've just inadvertently copied it?  That moment didn't happen until I started coloring this thing with colored pencils.  This is actually the third thing I've done in colored pencil recently and the third ever of any merit.  Two of them I can't show you because they deal with "Smacked In The Head".  The medium shift is a direct result of seeing artwork from the new Mad Max movie and while drawing this thing I was thinking about that movie, Heavy Metal comics and Judge Dredd.  There's no story.  I just like mutants.  Enjoy.

Video Store Membership

I never had my own membership card to a video store.  In high school I depended on other people's cards to rent movies and then in college I mainly went for the bargain bin $10 dvds.  In hindsight I feel like I missed out so I decided to make my own and get it laminated.  I gave it a touch of the fifties because of my love of diners and named it to reflect my love of b-movies and drive-in's from that era of the 40's and 50's.  The dates were random to add to the effect/era.  I could go all out and add textures and weathering to really sell it but I won't.  The address is actually the address of the video store we used to go to in Pennsylvania when I was growing up.  It was a mom and pop store owned by a friend of my dad's.  I think it has since become a pizza shop.  Enjoy.

Halloween Cometh...

I'm in full Halloween mode.  I hope you are too.  I may have mentioned previously when stressed or angry I tend to draw zombies or monsters.  The job search continues therefore I present "The Ghoul". Enjoy.

Bored Work Doodle

April 17, 2014


I did the best I could with what was there and I'm very happy with the cartoony ones.  I have a couple of pet peeves when it comes to life drawing.  One is clothing/props that are so huge you spend more time trying to figure out where the person's body is underneath to hang the clothes on than you do actual drawing of what you're seeing.  In this case a kimono and an enormous fan prop.  The other is when the model is either bored or just can't hold relatively still for five minute and starts making faces or looking around the room.  OR they are more interested in what music is being played in the background.  There is a degree of professionalism I expect and I am sadly disappointed when it's not there.  But I digress.  Enjoy.

Star Wars Episode VII

I've always wanted a Star Wars cartoon that focused on the original characters.  I used to watch "Droids" as a kid hoping that Luke would show up at some point but he never did and the only time that I can find Luke and them even being animated is in the Holiday Special.  So anyway this is kind of that dream fulfillment and a show of optimism for the next movie.  Click the still to view the bigger image and view the animated gif huge at Deviant Art:

Drag Race

My dad asked me to do an image for his hobby slot car drag racing group based on his Challenger.  First time I've ever really had to cartoon a car.  Definitely a learning experience.
