Monster Pages

Did these a few months ago to get back in the swing of doing sequentials. Since they were just for practice I pretty much drew straight onto the page after doing a rough thumbnail.

Tech pens, brush pen and brush


I was doing a little coffee shop sketching and feeling fairly uninspired when this guy and his hair walked by the window. So I commenced to doodling and failed to notice that the guy came in, bought an espresso and sat down at the bar right next to me. I've never been busted by anyone who caught me sketching them and luckily this guy shotgunned his drink and was back out the door in about 8 seconds so I think I was safe...or maybe he was just mad that I didn't capture the essence of that hair.

mugshots 2

More assorted sketchbook tomfoolery.  Some of these were done while on trains and planes which I always think will be great places to draw...I'm always wrong about that.

Walking in the Treme

A warm up/cool down sketch that kind of looks like the drug addicted musician from Treme (I think there's just one but I've only seen a few episodes). I wasn't going for a likeness or trying to draw anything from the show but I did have the theme song stuck in my head all day.

Brushpen, markers, and some crap bristol that's like inking on stucco.

I can't remember ever drawing Superman so here you go. My wife's first reaction when she saw this on my monitor "He looks a bit...prance-y" I suppose she's right, but even Superman's gotta dance.

#2 brush, markers and Photoshop.

Doing some work that I can't show here and some that's just not ready to show. So in the meantime, here's a little mash-up of sketches I did to warm up or cool down:

Saw this the other day...the little guy in full motorcycle gear couldn't seem to figure out where he'd left his bike so he was awkwardly jogging up and down the sidewalk looking for it. I'm sure his motorcycle and all his equipment usually make this guy feel pretty cool but full motorcycle gear minus the motorcycle equals pretty funny to me. Just a sketch to test out some new quills and brushes.

Noisy Wieghtlifter

I go to the gym, I see things and sometimes I draw them. This guy was legitimately scaring people as they walked into the weight room...And yes, I'm pretty sure his shirt said big body on it.

Warm up from this morning (Microns, Brushes and a dash of Photoshop)

I love doodling these little head sketches (click on the image for a larger view):


Some stuff from the sketchbook....

Panel Mash Up

Like the title says, just a mash up of panels from various test pages:

Thing Colors

Just playing around with Photoshop...hadn't done color holds for a while and wanted to see if I remembered how to do them.

Internet access is back so I'll be updating regularly again. Wasn't in love with this one but I did dig the textures in the background.

I've been gone a while, but I've got a good reason. After 7 years, I quit my Parks and Rec job (yup, like the tv show) to move across the Atlantic, from California to London, and restart my freelance career. I still don't have real, in-home internet yet but hopefully that'll get sorted out in the next couple weeks.

I'm also thinking of opening up commissions and possibly putting out a digital sketchbook but I'll post more on that in a bit but if anyone's interested just shoot me a note through this site.

Thanks to everyone who still pops by this page despite the recent inactivity.

Insomnia 1

Couldn't sleep...this happened.

(Pentel Brushpen and Prismacolor Marker)
