Aminals!



SO I was busy at work today. (haha) I was in a cartoony kind of mood and started sketching animals. Some of them turned out kind of demented, cute, and some are kinda ?uestionable. I kept them real loose and playful. Either way, keep sketchin'.

Introducing Joss Stone


Hi all,

I finally got a chance to get this scanned. I would've scanned it at my home but I would've had to piece it together so I took it to work and scanned it using a big German scanner...haha.

Well I bought an 11x14 sketch book a long time ago because I wanted to draw a lot of celebrity portraits and big comic pieces. This is the first...and so far, only one I've done in it. Here's the original photo:


I tried my best guys...so hard to replicate beauty like that.

What day is it?


It's actually Tuesday but thats a question I tend to ask during the week now a days. It feels more like a Wednesday to me. I guess thats because My weekend rocked socks and I just lost track of my schedule since I don't work a normal M-F, 9-5. Speaking of Wednesday I did this quick sketch while waiting for time to speed up at work.

Colored version: click here. So I had a really great weekend.

Hit up a bbq with my 'rents at my cousin Jason's house and ate no meat WHOO HOO 7 months strong.

On Sunday I went to the Zoo with my nearest and dearest, WonderMoo!, who is leaving for college this weekend. I miss her already! Afterwards my friend, E, came by and showed me his new HP laptop and we fleshed out some comic book ideas.

Today, I completely redid my room and chucked my bed...(into the garage) and shoved an art/drafting table in it's place. It actually turned out really awesome and now I have a very nice work space to play in. I know I haven't updated in a long time and truth is I've been quite busy with the children's books and work that any "free" time I do get I either sleep or spend socializing because I don't really get out much. But I set aside some time to do this and it ended up being an all day thing. So, I felt like uploading the blog as a way to unwind and get that stamp of "Mission Accomplished". I'll try and post more art and bring you up to speed on what it is I've been actually doing these days. It's just been another crazy summer filled with emotional ups and downs. Well more on that later...maybe.
