B is for Baby




Wow, I am going to be a grandparent soon and I'm so excited! My daughter Hannah asked if I could create a piece of art for the baby's room. She wanted something with a monkey, elephant, and giraffe so above is what I came up with. Each square is a separate piece and was printed on a 14x14 canvas frame. I had Costco print them out and when they arrived I was impressed with the quality and how nice they looked. Definitely using them again!

P is for Practice




I wanted to get back into sketching and had asked some of the animators at work if they would like to work on a drawing exercise together. The exercise has you work with 3 basic shapes and 3 basic colors that are assigned to each shape. Everyone had to choose a theme and make sure they used all the space inside the shapes. For my theme I chose Guardians of the Galaxy and the art piece above was my completed assignment.




After the shapes had been completed the next part of the exercise was to break the character out of its shape and design it. Part of this exercise was to use the same monochromatic palette for the color that represented the shape you were using. Above is my character design for Ronan the Destroyer and I referenced the old clone wars cartoon to for the specific art style.

W is for Whisky



This is Casey's last week working on our team. He was a lot of fun and a great animator. I wanted to give him a sketch as a going away gift so today I quickly put something together...hope he likes it, heh.

You will truly be missed Green Knight, CHEERS!

T is for Totoro


My daughter requested a drawing of her and Totoro. I thought it would be best to combine the character and Dylan's favorite place...Hogwarts. Of course she had to sport her Slytherin scarf and Deathly Hallows T-shirt. I imagined Dylan showing off her fuzzy friend while they flew around the school.

B is for Brandi

Over the weekend our friend Brandi was sporting this wicked outfit during the street fair. She was hoping to run into a crazy woman she called the Super Bitch! Super Bitch was a lady hanging out at a local bar that was sporting a superman outfit that had Styrofoam muscles.
