so i been playing around with designing characters, i really wanted to keep the simple shape clear in each character i think it shows most on the viking guy. also i been playing around with coloring my work using a colored ink style i like how it look. but the scanner does not like scanning to many lines so it loses a lot of its color, but it is still cool. well hope you all like tell me what you think, bye 4 now

So I been a little busy drawing designs for tee-shirts, it is fun and i really need the money. it is hard out here in this world trying to make a living as a person who loves to draw (artist), but you can't give up. well the skull drawing is somethig i did for fun, drawing evil and wild thing is something i love to draw, i guess it lets out those inner demons. there is a creature holding a gun just came up with it a few nights ago, there is this fury monster i came up with up so i could render the hair like that, it is cool but it takes a long time. and the superhero dude is just a old comic book fan at a con that i came up with a while ago. hope you guy's like tell me what you think. bye 4 now

I was blog surfing tonight when i saw the headline that Comic book artist Mike Wieringo passed away. i am shock and very sadden by this, Mike was one of my idols. He was just amazing to me, i never met him but i feel like a family member has left me. He was a artist that was truth to himself and craft. he will be miss, rest in peace Mike, all your fans miss you and a little piece of all of us died with him today, but he will live on though his work, the stories of others, and what he did for the comic art world.
Bye 4 now my friend.

Here are two new drawings i did for fun. the second drawing was none in my sketchbook just having fun with pens, the color piece is something i did to show my love for the new Pixar movie Ratatouille so i came up with a little fake poster, i just came up with this Chef who looks like a young Mario Batali with the orange shoes. i just can't wait to see this movie, i have the " art of Ratatouille" book and it is great, this was my first art of books and since them i have been getting all the books i can on this subject matter. this book and the open season book are the best. the surf's up book is really great to, if your a background type of person the surf's up book is the one to get, also open season, but the character design section is amazing in open season. these two books also showed me more of the great carter goodrich, that guy is amazing. well here is another long post but i hope you like and thank you to all the great people who look at my blog, bye 4 now.
PS. i would like to dedicate this post to one of the character designers on this flim the late, great Dan Lee 1969-2005.

Here are some things i was working on. i saw on shane prigmore blog that he came up with some baseball players, so i thought that would be fun to draw so i draw a player late that night at around 2:00 in the morning and the other drawings come from my little sketchbook, it is my travel sketchbook and these were draw that i did on the train or playing around at like 2:00 in morning again. maybe i should always draw in the late night. also today i went to the MOCCA event and met a gang of great guy's like Michael Knapp ( who is really kickass artist), Vincent and Peter Nguyen (these two guys make drawing seem so easy), Robert Mackenzie ( who is just amazing and really cool), Willie Real (who is amazing, cool, and gave me some great tips to grow as a artist), and Nash Dunnigan ( who i have so much in common with and had a really long and fun talk with about Graffiti). It was also amazing to see how so many artist love and know so much about graffiti art. see, i started drawing because of graffiti and it is in my blood, just love it and what it stands for, freedom and love of art. well today was a long post but i hope you guys like the story and my work. bye 4 now
