So my buds Melitia and Mud! have been working on some plush for the Chicago Comic Con. I got all inspired to doodle up some concepts of my own. Here is a sketch of a Hulk concept. I would probably do video game characters instead of super heroes but I thought this was fun.

Slow day at work today so I drew a quick doodle of my bud and fellow artist Mud!.
His comment, "I don't have a shirt that looks like that".

Deer Mom...

So here's a little progress for the SAAC challenge for July, Mom Tattoo. I'm doing different animals/creatures and I'm teaming up with my buddy Lindsay who will do the tattoos. Here is my deer sketch and color sketch which will soon be sporting a sweet "Doe" tattoo. I hope to have the final posted soon.

Project Ben 10...Diamondhead Final...

Ben 10_Diamondhead_Final_sm
Not gonna lie, this one took me a really long time. Then I got bored and stopped working on it for a long time. Picked it back up and finished over the last couple days.
Painting in Illustrator is so time consuming. I think when I started this project a billion years ago I thought it was going to be fun, and while it is rewarding to see the results these characters take a long time and I get bored and want to do other pieces. We'll see if I ever complete the remaining 7 aliens from the original Ben 10. Seems kind of pointless since there is a new series and like a trillion new monsters. Still, I like the original aliens and I may get to them eventually. If I do, next up will probably be Four Arms.

Daily Pattern: Beboppin' Blue Birds...

Another pattern for Paper Bicycle's Daily Pattern Challenge. This piece is kind of an ode to Jim Flora and Disney back in the Saludos Amigos days. My friend Francesca did a pattern with blue birds in it and it made me want to make a blue bird pattern too.

Here is a detail shot.

Couple sketches...

Aside from my Moleskin I have another bigger sketchbook. Most of the sketches in it turn into final pieces but here are a couple doodles that were just for fun.
This little guy keeps popping up in my sketchbook.

This was a begining sketch for something but I decided I didn't like it at all so I scribbled another sketch on top of it to save the page.

Only a couple...

Only a couple pages this time but I was tired of looking at that Band-Aid pattern.
The bottom sketch is of me and how I sled down hills.
Okay this is my absolute least favorite page in my sketchbook so far. I drew this on a flight to L.A. and hated it so much I redrew over it months later. Still looks awful. They get better from here on. :)
