Designed for Threadless

Hey folks!

I'm submitting a design for the "Threadless Loves Comics" contest! The winner gets paid, an iPad, plus a few trades of "Chew" along with their design showing up an issue of the comic.

Here's the link:

So please, if you dig it, tell others about it! It's not up for voting yet (but when it does, I'll let you know) but I'm just concerned about getting some eyeballs on it first.

Summer Can Be Brutal

Happy Dave

Inspired by my girlfriend's roomate - we were all out at the beach this past week and she had mentioned something about hairy I sketched Dave, the rainbow, and stars. Didn't have a layout in mind until working on it tonight.

June is National Safety Month

Guy and sign were done for work - all the extra treatments (type, tones, BG) were for fun!

Mini Updates

Been taking some time to work on a submission for Disney Animation's Talent Development Program. Looking to get into the Visual Development arm for 6 months and get some experience and face time with creatives already doing what I'm aiming for.

Outside that, just some daily sketching and big overhauls at home. Got a new TV and stand, had to do some major reorganizing between the old shelf space, the new stand, and my ridiculous collection of art books, comics,!

Past few weeks have been exciting - Crewest Show, then Easter, then my girlfriend's birthday followed by mine the day after, then a new TV...*whew* Lots of blessings and lots of hustle.

Character Designs - Artists and Star Wars

Gallery opening at Crewest was a lot of fun! The night started slow but by the time I left, it was so crowded that folks spilled out into the streets!

Been drawing a lot for the Design a Character group on DA. These two assignments were fun. The artist was a 'prop' challenge where the chair had to be created first, then a character based on the chair. The Star Wars characters came from an opposites challenge - making two characters that play off the opposites of each other.

Dudley - Street Fighter 3 (and 4)

Another in this series of SF characters. This time with more deliberate design in pattern and badge/frame/motif around the character.

Makoto - Street Fighter 3 (and 4!)

I grew up play a lot of Street Fighter. When SF3 - Third Strike came out it was decided that I try to learn Makoto, one of the game's harder to learn characters. She's the kind of fighter that with enough time and effort, her usefulness opens WAY up.

Heard she'll be in Super Street Fighter 4 coming out in April. So did this little illustration.

I feel like tonight's process was kinda like learning to use her in the game. Lots of extra work and effort up front, but this feels like one of those 'breakthrough' pieces artists are lucky to get in life.

Night well spent!

Joined up to a group on DA called Design-A-Character . Each week a new challenge is posted, from designing characters based on random shapes to re imagining existing designs.

These were a few for the first time I participated. Looking forward to doing more!

Another Gallery Show + Computer Issues

Long time, no talk folks!

I'll be in another gallery show on April 3rd in the LA area! It another bike-themed show, and all art will be 'hand printed' meaning silkscreen, lino block print, etc. I've got a design figured but no color scheme yet. Want to keep it one color so it's affordable though.

Also, I caught the first malware/spyware infection ever! Had my current PC for 5+ years, and I've been working to fix it (and almost there!), but until then I've kept most of my updating to password-protected places to other computers. Gotta thank the girl for the laptop use...

Here's the design for the show, plus some sketchwork and stuff that's gone up at DeviantArt but failed to go up here!

This last one is for the art show.
