Monster book nearly done!

"It's Just Your Imagination!" is drawing ever nearer to completion!

We found a few final touches to add when putting everything together, like this little fellow who goes at the end of the book! Soon it'll be on to the proof process to see how it looks on paper! I'm not looking forward to that part as much because something will have to be adjusted, but it's an unavoidable part of the process so I'm going to embrace it as best I can.

This has been a fantastic learning experience and I'm definately going to use what I've learned to make another book! Hopefully the process will be smoother the second time around ;)

That's all I got for now!

Late night sketching

Sketchies! I was up until 2 last night sketching for no particular reason. It was fantastic. I can't recall the last time that I was up that late drawing just because I felt like it. Oh sweet bliss!

I was inspired by this fellow who, oddly enough, I worked with for about a month but never met!

Most of the stuff is reference from the net, save for arrow head guy the two unrendered heads on the far right and Scoob and Shaggy, who were on the cover of a book on my desk the other day.

This week I have a few final illustrations to do for the Monster book before it can finally be called finished, so hopefully I can hunker down and "git 'er done" :D

That's it for now. If you're reading this and can spare a moment, please leave a comment!


P.S. I have to tool around with my scanner to figure out a way to get scanned drawings to look more like their analog counterparts...sorry for the crappy quality!

That dentist fresh feeling!

Here's a piece that I did for my dentist a couple of months ago. A print is currently hanging on the children's art wall in his office (which is behind use in the picture) that I've always meant to create something for. It only took 2 decades! My dentist is super skilled and one heck of a nice guy and I hope that I managed to capture his essence in this piece :D

I haven't been doing much in the way of personal art recently largely due to having landed a full time art related job a couple of weeks ago. My new daily routine consists of stuffing my brain with lots of new knowledge during the day and letting it rest (I.E. vegging out) during the night. I have some projects that I want to try and get off of the ground and I'd also like to do some finished one-off pieces (or maybe a series) and make them available for purchase as prints. That's the rough plan at least!

It's super fantastic working with lots of other artists and it's inspiring me to want to be more active in art communities and get myself out to more people!

Until next time!
