No real artistic doodles to add today. Just an "Oh, look! How neat!" I finally uploaded some photos of my Character design with his chocolate molded version. The design makes me smile because of the movement in his beard and the facial expression. He feels very "bouncy."

I do have sketches I am in need of scanning eventually. It's the curse of a compulsive doodler. :) I sometimes will go to the comic book store or see a show on TV and get motivated to do a better version. -Example: I have this immense URGE! to redesign VOLTRON and Thundercats Reboots. It's like an itch! I kind of have fun doing that, though.

In other news, I've found a love of making breads. Honey Whole Wheat, Cinnamon Raisin Swirl, Challah.... all in moderation, of course. :) Though I do have to say, the honey whole wheat does make fantastic crutons when you have leftovers! - I will leave my love of food there for now.

In between projects, whipped up this little number. Was for a contest for "Why I deserve a vacation!" But Apparently it's either too good, too unusual, or the mods didn't like the "scary" situation of the picture. Oh well. I liked the composition and movement.

It was amusing either way.

Hello, blog!

It's summer. Things are incredibly busy. Above is one of the place cards I did for my recent wedding. It was a fantastic challenge to do. I wish I had more time to do things likes this! I wanted to experiment with texture and color.

Hopefully an art dump eventually? Maybe? I don't know. Currently with work, I can't divulge what I do there, and it really does take all of my time. Maybe once it's all released, I can talk more and happily point it out. No guarantees.

I need to take photos of my Robin Eggs character designs. They were all over this 2011. It was pretty exciting seeing them replace the old robin.

Happy little guys, aren't they?

Recently contributed to a public radio podcast about life after getting the BFA. A little nervous. No names, very general, and "I love what I do." Only hope I came across clearly, and curious to hearing more discussions about outsourcing. I'm always interested in hearing more sides of the debate.

Experimenting with no-lines in a design. Nothing much else going on that I can divulge in, currently. Working two jobs involving art, and both have a lot of potential to be huge. "Details" after it's released. -Typical of anything in the art fields.

New art.

It's been a heck of a year! I have so much to share and so much to talk about, so in the meantime, have some new work that's out and about.

First, have some art that's been out this Holiday season. While working for a pretty rad package design firm, I did some character designs a while back. They're finally creeping out again! Here's a Santa I drew for them, colored by one of the team. He was even molded on the chocolate! Ah! Very cool......

And lately, I've been becoming entertained by Reddit. I had a huge kick to do some drawings in some different styles. The results below.
