I sketched a goofy He-Man today while waiting for the design meeting and colored it after work.

(NOTE: I posted this image earlier and noticed a design error... that his axe hand wasnt angled correctly to his arm... thus i changed the arm to suit the pronated hand.)

Hobo Hammers

A few weeks ago, I saw a hobo on the street...

(actually, i am not sure if he was an actual hobo, but he was sitting on a milk crate next to a street table with misc. junk for sale... and again, i am not sure what his actual relationship with this table was, but i just assumed he was a hobo by the looks of him.... anyway...)

...and i thought he had a pretty striking outfit. i put the combo to memory hoping to get some free time at work to sketch him out. Well, i didnt... but a few days later, i remembered him and did have some time to doodle.

i cant remember exactly what the guys face was like, though i think he had a hobobeard. it didnt matter, what mattered was the hood and vest combo which was striking, as the hood's drawstring was pulled firm about his face and his vest zipped up as he huddled on a milk crate.

this here be my homage to said hobo...

Some MacroVu art from September

My client in SF hired me to do a batch of illustrations for one of his poster projects. Here are a few samples.

Sketches + Color = todays post

I am trying to make an effort to keep this blog relevant, by posting something every week. I am finding very little time to flex my creative muscles outside of my 5 day work week, though it is not impossible to get some stuff out.

i revisited my claim to post pages of my moleskine F-train sketchbook. these sketches are not exclusively of the f-train, though most have been... either studies/reference from passengers or from my imagination. this week, i am posting a drawing of a guest speaker from my producing for animation class, i took early this year, and secondly, an F-train passenger.

i took a little time this weekend to color them in photoshop.

more to come, eventually.

Colonel of the MWDefense Marines

I have a project on the burner for Force Galxia, called the Milkey Way Defense Marines. I plotted a story for Andre Owens, and he wrote his characters in. here is one of the characters he asked me to design.

Barbarian sketch.

Sometimes, it seems, you feel like you just can't draw worth shit. sometimes, thats because you switched pencils and / or paper and the chemistry just isnt working out. that is how i felt this morning (actually this whole weekend). coming in to work, i sketched a little warm up painting in photoshop. i cant say its awesome, but i think i just shook out the bugs in my drawing hand.
