Some warm up sketches

Life drawin' again

Here's this weeks drawing. I think it was reasonable successful although I'm happier with last weeks attempt. I may move on to toned paper next week in an attempt to branch out.

Misinterpreted Topic

So Nate dropped a random topic yesterday for Skuntch - problem is that half-way through the drawing I forgot part of the topic. It went a little something like, "A Slimy Harlequin with... something..." Nobody else could remember it either. I just decided to finish it out as, "...with skeleton arms." :P

Large Post

Hey all! I have been working on some fun stuff during the past week. First image is a speed-paint I did yesterday. There is roughly 45-60 minutes into it. You can see the thumbnail I worked up in the lower right, very rough, really no aim. I thought it came out alright for a quicky though...
This next set of image is for a music project that my friend Neil from Yo! Flaco is starting up called The Littleague. It's basically good hip hop music for kids utilizing the talents of local MC's to bring to life these cartoon kids (a la The Gorillaz). You can listen to some of the songs here;

Lastly, a drawing I did at Skuntch Monday for my cousin's tattoo.

A very quick doodle-up for a friend's tattoo. I was asked to come up with something representing the element 'earth.' The sketch and inks took about 20min. - about 30min on the quick digi-color. I like it's simplicity and the ink-work, so I thought I'd share.

Comic Pin-up

A Pin-up for a trade paperback collection of a comic called Grunts by Shannon Denton and Keith Giffen.
Hey - BTW - Jim Valentino wrote Zirpoli last night to say that Image wants to publish our book Stitches! Naturally, we're both thrilled! So, anyway - nothing's official at this point - just wanted to share the news!

S'more life drawin'

Here is last night's drawing. I'm pretty happy with it overall - as always there are just a few little things that bother me.

Figure Drawing Yesterday

Mike and I went down the figure drawing session in Boulder yesterday. I am reasonably happy with what I produced, especially considering the is the second life drawing session I have done in somewhere around 4 years.

Lazy Vampires part 2

I barked Jim? Barked!?

Anyway, here are my passes on that topic, although mine neither convey lazy nor jetpack very well, I got caught up in drawing vampire heads. Specifically having trouble getting an eerie vampire chick face. Oh well, i didn't consider this page much of a failure. The small jetpack guy on the right side is the closest I got to the actual theme. Maybe i'll paint it one of these days.

Lazy Vampires...

Well, I have not gotten to the Yoda Meat topic yet, though I want to. Honestly, Ray nailed it, so I am giving it some thought... In the mean time, Nate and I got together for an evening sketching session complete with a viewing of Tromeo & Juliet. Nate barked the topic "A Lazy Vampire with a Jet-Pack." I tried to stop the barking - here's what happened. :)
It's not really a speed-paint - more like a couple-hour book doodle.
