Daily Pattern: Band-Aid...

Here's another entry for Daily Pattern. This topic was Band-Aid. Kind of a gross topic, but it reminded me of when my brother and I were younger we once got on this kick of seeing who could have the most band-aids on at once. The challenge was it had to be for an actual cut. So like the intelligent kid I was I immediately ran out and started doing all kinds of dangerous things that would cut my hands up. I think I got up to 7 band-aids before my mom caught on to what we were doing and made us stop.

Daily Pattern: Sad but true...

Here is another entry for Daily Pattern. The theme was "Date Night". It's been quite a while since I've been on a date. Most of my date nights are like this these days.

Just to clarify...these are the messages I get, not that I send. Time to go eat all the ice cream. O_O

Wakka wakka wakka...

Here are some simple little Pac-Man ghosts I drew to go along with the simple Pac-Man doodle already gracing the front of my Moleskin. Now to cut them out and tape them up! Woot!
Pac Ghosts

OMG! Could it be?!...

So every now and then I start working on a piece that just becomes an epic labor of love. Monster Time was one such piece where I drew, redrew, colored, recolored, redrew, forgot about, remembered, so on and so forth. I puttered around with it over the course of almost three years. Well, introducing my new gigantic labor of love piece. This was a sketch I started working on for the second S.A.A.C. challenge of "Yeti Spaghetti". I drew and redrew and recently drew a little more. Here is the result of the hopefully soon to be finished "Yeti Spaghetti" piece.

Just playin...

I was playing around in Photoshop CS5 today. Experimenting with the different brushes. I drew this...

Then I drew this...

Then I started doing this...but realized the drawing was really bad and stopped.

I need a lot of practice painting in the computer. I've seen some amazing stuff by some super talented people and it's made me want to learn. So time to teach this old dog a new trick.

Bad sketches...

They can't all be awesome but like I said I am trying to post all the pages from my Moleskin. This is a grouping of not so great sketches.
I was kinda having a rough day. This was all that I felt needed to go in this page.
Not really having a rough day, just thought it was a nice juxtaposition from the previous page.
This is probably my least second least favorite page in my sketchbook so far. I put a little sketch my buddy Van drew on there just to try to make it better. :P

More sketches...

Are you tired of these yet?! Me either!
This page is really weird. Why do I post these four at a time? I guess it just keeps me on my toes to draw more.

Daily Pattern: Bear...

Here is my pattern for the Paper Bicycle Daily Pattern theme of "Bear". This was pretty much the first thing that popped into my head...although I didn't think to make it Yogi until I started doodling. I couldn't stop laughing at the thought of what if Yogi was just a regular bear wearing a hat and tie.

More doodles...

Pencil jet...
I was explaining some One Piece stuff to a friend...
There's a sketch of my cat Bella's arm when she was a kitten on the left, and what she looks like now on the right. Also Tremors!!!
Think I drew this during some training.
