The Sketchbook Project: Kangamoo Mouse

My latest page features a colorful backdrop and a kangamoo mouse named Skippy!

I've been using blank pages to wipe off marker tips when they clog or pick up other colors. So far they've made a design I'm quite fond of on the page next to Skippy:

I hope to make something spectacular on that page for you all very soon!

The Sketchbook Project: First Pages

I have completed the first 2 pages of my sketchbook with the exception of a little round sign on the inside cover that I intend to fill out once my book has been completed and is otherwise ready to mail. May this image bring you as much joy as it does to me:

The Sketchbook Project

The Brooklyn Art Library in New York City has a program that I'm proud to say I will be a part of this year: The Sketchbook Project. As part of the project, anyone can purchase a sketchbook from the library and fill it almost any way they desire. The participant then mails the sketchbook back to the library, and the sketchbook becomes part of their permanent collection, travels across the country to art exhibits, and will be catalogued and rotated for viewing at the Brooklyn Art Library as long as it stands.

I have filled my book with patterns and textures. Now for the fun part...

Daily Art Update

Daily Art has been suspended due to the fact that I have been working on a couple of projects recently with results that I have been contracted not to share publicly.

As such, I will revert back to utilizing this space on an occasional basis to share my works in progress that are entirely my own and such small artworks as are inappropriate for my professional portfolio.

Daily Art: A Really Rough Sketch

May 21st:

This was an extremely quick sketch that I did just before bed to get an idea down on paper. I had a vision of a creature-version of mother nature where her entire abdomen is shaped like one of those woven, hanging bird nests. I haven't really nailed down the rest of the concept except that her limbs should be somewhat spindly in contrast to the rounded abdomen.

Daily Art: This Idea Needs Much More Work

May 20th:

I had an idea for a little creature whose bones got longer as they radiated out from the center of it's body instead of shorter - a creature of backward proportions, so to speak - but it didn't work out quite the way that I planned. This was another poor drawing day. I think that the idea was good, but the execution left a lot to be desired.
