The Blue Bag

Hey guys- another lunchtime memory sketch. Today we couldn't find anyone interesting to draw so we just picked a girl walking in front of us with a Ginormous blue bag. Never got to see her face-but tried to give a sense of motion and color with this drawing-not anatomical accuracy. (Drawn in about 4-5 minutes)

Sweaty Business Man

Hey gang! This here is a super fast 5 minute memory sketch of this fat sweaty Drew Carey looking dude we saw outside of NeoPets. So the game is, a few of us artists see a person on the street during our lunch break, then we go inside and draw them. Unfortunately, you only see them for a second, so the drawings aren't ever very literal-just an impression of what the person looked like. If you want to see other people's interpretations of this guy- go here. Hope ya like!

I'm Old

Today is July 20th 2007 and today I'll be celebrating my 30th birthday. Holy Crap. It seems like just yesterday I was spending the weekends reading comics, playing with Star Wars toys, and drawing cartoons. Actually, that WAS yesterday. Viva la progress!
PS. What you are looking at is a handmade book I made at about age 3-4. Amazing how 27 years later my tastes are pretty much the same.

Links a Poppin!

From now on-- you can view my art at Deviant Art here. It's an easy gallery link, so you don't have to search the archives of this blog for all your favorite Star Wars Bubbleheads.

Also, I'll be posting on an artist community blog called 7 Days of Sketching. I'm a bit humbled by the amazing talent of the artists that already post there, but I'll be throwing in my 2 cents from time to time. By the way, the pic you see is of caracature of a Nut Vendor(seriously!) selling his wares outside the NeoPet studios. A couple of friends and I decided to characature him here and here.

Scary Cat

This piece is my very first digital painting, done for my good buddy Joseph's birthday the other day. Cat in the Hat is one of our most loathed movies. It's deeply offensive on so many levels, not the least of which is that it's not funny for a second. Mainly it's just creepy. Very, very creepy.

Anyway, sorry I've been neglecting my blogging duties. In case you're wondering where I've been, I got hired at a company called NeoPets, which is this online/children's/game/customizable pet/thing. It's got a pretty big following, and for the last month I've been doing prop design. It's a pretty sweet gig, and they're keeping me really busy. So, I apologize for the artistic slowdown, but stay posted...more stuff is on it's way.

Fan Art of my Fan Art

How cool is this? Fellow Star Wars fan Tania Cardenas, a pro character animator and FX animator sent me some photos of a clay sculpture of my drawing of Bubblehead Jabba & Leia as seen here. Very cute! Thanks Tania!

Polar Friends

Hey gang- a little something different today. Here are some character concepts from a show I'm developing with Joseph Schneider. It's called "Polar Playmates", and it takes place, as you can see, in the artic. (with NO penguins, I promise!)
