Holiday cards for kids...

Last week at work we took some time to hand make cards for kids who were hospitalized over the holidays. They were supposed to be holiday (not christmas) themed and we had all sorts of paper, glitter, markers, all that jazz. You can see one of my four snowmen in the upper center. Hopefully they make some little guy or girl's holiday a little brighter.

Most of them said something along the lines of "Hope you have a cool holiday!" Cause he's a snowman, see? Cool...snow...cold.

Weekend Monster! 04...

This week I did a little double duty. Creating a Weekend Monster! and participating in my friends over at Paper Bicycle's new holiday challenge.

For the monster I am paying homage to my favorite holiday monster, the abominable "Bumble" snowman from the Rankin/Bass classic Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. I used the teardrop ornament dieline from the PB blog for the monster. For the car I thought the Bumble would probably cruise around in a big ol' snow cat...with flames and I used the christmas car dieline...sort of. I altered it to suit my snow cat needs.

I added a second page for arms and legs. Download here.

Here they are all nice and put together!!

Happy Holidays everyone!!

Weekend Monster! 03...

I gotta stop waiting till 6pm on Sunday to start these!! Here is Weekend Monster! number 3 as finished as I can afford to finish it. The car in this piece is the amazing Lamborghini Countach. The one and only car I ever had a poster of as a kid. Also, I found this image which was the inspiration for my slime monster. Enjoy.

Weekend Monster! 03 Sketches...

Man oh man! This one has been brutal. It hasn't been the car this time, it's the monster. I just couldn't get it right! (Although I didn't try too hard on the car. Ha.) I'm working on the finals as we speak. Check the sketches below.

Weekend Monster! 02...

Here it is. Weekend Monster! number two. Have I mentioned that I really don't like drawing cars yet?! In other news, go see The Muppets. Is it the best film ever? No. Is it a pretty fun, feel good movie that you'll enjoy? Yes. So go see it.
