Deady teddy

Here are some exploratory thumbnails for a marching teddy bear i was set to animate.The director wanted the bear to be appealing but not look sentient. it was under an enchantment,not alive. So I was exploring animation that moved the head in a way that prevented it from looking directly at anything. I kept thinking of it as a zombie bear. some poor wretched creature given life for nothing but the amusement of spoiled children. the project was canned before I got  to animate anything.

Don't tread on me bro!

Haven't blogged in awhile. Heres a character concept for an upcoming project.I wanted the gun and jacket to look oversized. The gun turned out ridiculously big.

Not a word.

sample page from my upcoming comic. sans word balloons. I recently changed the lead character's names from"Jake" and "kelly" to "Dick" and "Jane"......I decided to let them sort out who gets what name.

A horse of a different color

Just a fun little painting.I'm not sure why I made the horse purple. Trying to get a sense of movement and action in a stylized drawing.

Finding Nemo 2?


drew myself a baar, til it was half past 3.

quick sketches in Photoshop. Going to the zoo is a battle of wills. The animals stand around doing nothing. forcing you to stand around and do nothing. Its a conflict. do you wait for the beast to move, or do you give in and go get cotton candy.

Riding Daddy!

Get your mind out of the gutter.

Saw this at Burger King on Monday morning. I've seen kid carriers for the back. But never the shoulders. I looked for this product afterword, but could not find it

Waiting for the ACME delivery man.

It was really hot here a few days ago. This guy was casually laying about 50 yards from my backyard fence. I've seen coyotes pass by a few times (I hear them a lot) but never saw one just sort of..hanging out. he was off after about 15 minutes

Almost in time for pride weekend.

I like the way the colors came out in this.

I cleaned my plate!.

T-shirt concept. didn't like it. cute though.

Cupcake girl.

I don't remember what this was for either. But it's newer. from 2008.

I love the way you dress (2004)

Old drawing circa 2004. I forget what it was for. but rediscovering it made me laugh.

Starving no more!

thoughts going through my head recently.

"I should start an art blog"
"You did that a few years ago"
"No I didn't"
"yes you did, but never updated it"
" oh yeah!"

then i realized I was arguing with myself.
