My art that looks like someone else's

We've been challenged to try and copy another artist's style in order to help us stretch our own. I went for Brianne Drouhard. . . She's kind of anime, and I'm not really an anime-er. . . so, here's my attempt. Um. .. It's a squirrel. . . Who can do karate. . . and small motor skills.


Quick witches

Well, here are a couple more witches. . . I dunno if I'd call them done, or even good for that matter. . . But they're here. Enjoy.


More October goodness

So, work has given us the assignment of "Woggle of Witches". . . Could I be any happier? I submit that I cannot! Here's one of my witches. . . My goal was not to use green. . . I've used a lot of green in my art recently and just wanted to see if I could not do it. Here it is, greenless.


Well hello there October.

I love October. The leaves are changing, soup is the "it" lunch, I'm not sweating upon leaving the house, and my fall ensembles are fabulous. . . Although right now, I'm wearing something that should have been in "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers". Oh well, bless my beautiful hide I suppose. October also provides the opportunity to dress as pirates and witches while I draw monsters, mummies, cauldrons, and spiderwebs without other people accusing me of being all crazy goth and stuff. . . Not that there's anything wrong with the goth movement. It's done wonders for Robert Smith and Souixie. Seriously, some people just look fabulous in black fishnet gloves with matching skirts and eyeliner. I highly recommend it to anyone who has an aversion to the sun or who feels they have a personal relationship with Edgar Allen Poe. Poe is great. . . Love his stuff. Love Robert Smith and Souixie too. .. But, I also love green, Disneyland, daisies, and puppies. So I can't be goth. I think they have and anti-puppy clause or something. So, here's my nod to October 2007. May it be a fabulous month; full of pirates, Poe, puppies, and a boyfriend.

Shoot, that ruined my alliteration.


A cheesy assignment

So, our office blog assignment was to do bad science fiction art. Really not my bag. . . At all. Not even a bit. Completely bagless actually. But, I rose to the occassion and did a fairy. But in order to make her bad fantasy, I had to do a few cliches and make her blue, have a short hairdo, no pupils, and cry. I don't get the crying thing, but I saw it in several bad pieces I found when looking for examples of sci fi and fantasy art.

Alas, the cheese factor was becoming a bit too overwhelming so I added a couple skulls to balance it out. Didn't work though. It's still cheesy.


The Boy Who Ate America

Alright ladies and gents. . . Here's the cover of my book, "The Boy Who Ate America". . . in stores now! Go and get one! Seriously! I mean it. . . Shoo!

Why are you still reading this? Go get a book so I can make money and take a trip. Get outta here.


Midichlorian halos

So, this is another piece for the office blog. Seems like I haven't had too much time to do some bloggin' but there's a good excuse. . . or two. I've got a children's book coming out in Sept. Keep a weathered eye out for it. It's called "The Boy Who Ate America". It's written by a friend of mine, Nathan Smith Jones and I illustrated it. Anyway, here's the holy family of Star wars. Tender, I know.



So, here's a portrait of a friend. Anytime you can make a dimple blue is a good time.


Juicy superhero

So, I'm supposed to attach this to the Avalanche blog but for some reason I can't. . . So here, at least my own blog loves me.

Here's my blue collar superhero, the man that adds a dash of protein and energy to your morning smoothie. Look in the sky for the Juicer.
