Tis a dumpage of sketches.

So I purchased a Wacom Intuos this summer. I always kinda wanted to play around with one, and now I've got it, but no time to work with it. Sad day, I know. Anyway, above is my first all digital sketch. Its about 15 minutes of work. I can see how people would utilize a Wacom as their main tool, however, I can safely say that the bulk of my work will remain in the traditional media.

The rest of these are a few sketches with no order, rhyme or reason.

Mustache confusion

I started collecting pictures of things/people with cool mustaches. I think its going to be a very interesting series of images.

Some Valleyfair junk

This is my latest freelance job. I wish I would have laid on a lot more paint. Oh well. I'll get em next time.

Here's yet another illustration for City Hall Magazine. I drew this mainly with Micron pens because my piece of crap nibs were not drawing at all, and it was very frustrating. I started inking it at Valleyfair, and I didn't think to bring spare nibs with me. I did also learn that a semi-decent watercolor job can cover up a semi-crappy inking job.

Caricature Bliss?

This was a really fun family. They sat down and asked to be drawn really exaggerated. What else could a guy ask for?

The guy in this drawing had such a thick neck that it swallowed his chin. I was so excited over it that the only reference to a chin that I put in was a little dab of facial shadow. I lost the likeness a little bit, but I didn't care, I just wanted to draw it exactly as you see it here.
