sketch gallery

Ye olde sketch(e?) gallery is a little looser, a little more varied these days. Looking back through my warm up drawings is weird - so many different styles. There are days when I end up with really weird faces, sketchy faces, detailed faces...sometimes just poorly rendered bad faces. Reminds me of the different handwriting styles I tried on back in the day. You know, cursive, dotting the i with a heart, extra flourishes on a and g. Sometimes it's beneficial to comb back through this stuff and pick out a style I'd like to work in more, but mostly it's just nice to make a little something out of these throwaways because it's Friday and I felt like it.

ladies in blue

Here it is, midsummer, and despite the heat, I'm feeling....productive. I scanned in pages and pages of new inked drawings and texture experiments yesterday, and decided to treat myself to a little Photoshop fun (phun? ha) involving my new friends, the dodge and burn tools. My digital illustration teacher would be fuming if he saw this, but I'm into this seventies blue fade vibe, so I'm going with it.

welcome to the ad industry, bitch

On a Monday, at the beginning of a bonanza of Dude and Chick holiday release madness (in living color on site in St. Paul!) all I can manage is sharing a terrific mashup of my two favorite things. Get ready to have Phantom Planet stuck in your head for the rest of the day (and for the record, if you don't understand the title of this post, you have three seasons of excellent mid-aughts television to watch before we can properly chat).
