Bitten by the Cartooning bug

I'm not saying that I'm any good at it, but I've been bitten by the cartooning bug. I think it is coming up more and more in my drawings because of the animation work I've been doing. Thinking in terms of story boards and sequences . Maybe it's  comic-con. It is fun though.

Aztec PortHole

A funny sculpture I made of a little guy squeezing his head into a porthole . It reminds me of those Aztecs or the Mayans sculptures that supposedly depicted aliens visiting from other worlds.

Cloud Fish

You know, I think I ran into one of these swimming one time. So you could say this was done from memory.

Floating Woo

I've been a little distracted as of late, printing up t-shirts for school fund raisers and the like. But I do get a little painting in in the evenings . What better way to keep up your painting chops than with spaceships and tentacles. Or maybe they're underwater. I don't know.

Somethings are just easier to draw than paint. I got pretty far with this one but I'm getting a little confused with the way the light hits all the different shapes . It's a little too monochromatic anyway so I'll start a new.

Bathroom wall Mural ideas

NoteBook Drawings

Todays notebook drawings were slow in coming, although the attempt at a comic strip was interesting . I've never done a comic strip, I did a storyboard for a short film once I will have to dig that up.

Mosaics Party

Sunday and it's a balmy 78 degrees what better to do than have some friends over and break out the mosaics. I have over twenty boxes of my original handmade tiles left over from my old mosaic tile business. Every now and then we dust them off and make stuff with them.
It starts with the kids .
And before too long everyone joins in.
The fun part is cleaning up after.

New Tee Shirt Designs

Heres a look at the "Flower Power" design with a second color added (light grey) on a black T-shirt. Reminds me of that "Black hole Sun" song.

My Routine

I confess I doodle, a lot! in fact if I didn't set my cell phone alarm I would do it all day long till it hurts. I find things get really out of balance when you follow your bliss. This kind of drawing generates a lot of ideas for me though, I call it "no think" drawing. I find the most comfortable chair in the house and quickly get in the zone and I can do about 5 or 6 pages in an hour.
Sometimes I use tissues and pull a design out of my notebook and do a tighter drawing sort of edit drawing.
Most times I just scan the whole page into the computer and I can go in and select out what looks interesting to me. What a piece of work Photoshop is.
