Lanny McDonald

Don't even really know who Lanny McDonald is, but I think the illustration I did of him recently turned out sort of spiffy.

I think I got better some how...

I don't mean to sound overly self-satisfied, but I'm really happy with the way some recent illustrations have turned out. It's for a project that started almost a year ago, and while I like a lot of those past illustrations, some of them I am down-right embarrassed by or simply have no relationship with anymore. It's as if some one else did them, and I wonder how the new illustrations will mix with the illustrations from a year ago. But I accept an artist's style morphs and grows over time, I am not one to tinker with illustrations of the past. But I like what I've produced lately, I've changed my approach and have learned to finish (and start) an image more properly. The project isn't finished yet, but since no one ever reads this I feel I can safely post this image.

A month from now I may cringe when I look at it, but today I like it. Ladies and gentlemen, Sammy Davis, jr. and Jim Croce.

More to come hopefully.

Abandoned DTB idea

Pretty shameless rip off of Justice League New Frontier cover, but I was idea-absent.

I started this forever ago. I guess I'll probably never finish it, so at least I can stare at it online now.

Flying Tights Man

Yep, my new totally original character.


Check out this bitchin' link.


I've had the same sketchbook since July. Since I've been carrying them with me, I usually go through about one a month, so I don't know what's up. Any ways, that's that. Here's something I made out of pen & paper.

I decided to start posting sketches as I initially intended to when I began this blog. So here's today's sketch from several yesterdays ago. No idea what to do with it.

Another Adventure for PorkchopBob

I recently finished the latest PorkchopBob short, which is why I haven't illustrated anything lately. I was much more ambitious with this one than past shorts. Considering the only thing that moved in past shorts was usually a mouth or blood splatter, that's not saying much, but I certainly learned a lot with this one. Hopefully it was not a complete waste of time

Another self portrait

I don't really draw myself that much, but if my mind goes blank I work a quick sketch in sometimes just to keep the pen moving. I kind of liked this one for it's "hirschfeldiness".

A Happy Medium

I've been trying to find a medium between the crisp, "cut out", shape-constructed characters that tend to look a little too flat and "tweeny" when animated, vs. more lively illustrative characters that retains a little more of the life of the original sketch. Here is a new character as seen in the original, lively sketch; the loose digitally sketch model; and as vector-based model constructed with a series of shape and layers.
