Screen Saver

For some reason at my work I'm the jack of all trades for side art jobs,
so they had me take a bunch of pictures downstairs of their equipment.
They have a bunch of rad old electronics down there.
Since I dig old vintage pictures of electronics, I took the liberty of taking just a couple pictures for my own use.
I have no idea what this is, but say hello to my new desktop

This is one of the few illustrations that I threw into my portfolio.
There's a few illustration jobs I'd like to try out for,
and so I needed a portfolio fast.
Over the weekend I realized that
I ought to really save all my original files...
Up until now most of my projects
I've only used to just merely display on the web.
Makes going back and making a portfolio a pain in the neck.
Also need to save in my original concept sketches,
and note down when I create projects.


I'm doing too many things at once.

Little Nemo

I loved the Little Nemo as a kid.
Then about 5 years ago I got to liking Ghibli, and noticed a link between the two.
Apparently there was a team up and Ghibli was helping in creating the movie,
but they ended up pulling out of the deal.
there is still this pilot from 1984

very similar to the movie, but just anime.
It's kinda cool seeing it done this way, except...
whats up with Nemo not talking?

The video game is one of my all time faves

I love speed painting backgrounds, esp of Traverse City peninsula.
It's my favorite place to go swimming in all of Lake Michigan, good memories.
Like most of Michigan, you go through thick forrest and then all of a sudden it halts to reveal sandy beaches and crystal blue waters.

I also love this photo,
which further more solidifies my description of "forrest to sandy beach".

Concept Prints

I didn't spend much time on this, but It looks pretty good to me.
Would really like to make this into a print, I'm gonna make it happen this week.

Morning Routine

I've decided to start sketching at least two people in the morning.
Gotta keep it at a low so I'll keep up with it.
I tend to be more artistic in the morning,
I guess I just dont over think things then.

Here's todays

Freelancing for E!

Keep your eyes peeled when watching E!
you might see some of my work making a debut real soon.
A friend (who works for E!) asked me to illustrate
some childrens drawings of Alice in Wonderland.
I guess they needed em' for a show they're doing.
Threw my hair up in pig tails,
got out a big piece of paper, opened a box of new crayolas,
layed down on the floor with my legs kicking,
and got to work.

Apparently it's hard to draw like a kid,
but not if you are mentally challenged like myself.

I don't mess around, I pay deep attention to details.

Notice the following
• backwards "L"
• everything has the same smile
• blob hands

All of them, things only a child would do.

I'm a star

Flyer Update

Latest Update:
I know it's not perfect, but I'm going with it.

I still have to update some text,
but this is the direction I'm going with.
Really am having a lot of fun with this one, a lot of free creativity.
Recently this past month or so I've gotten a kick start back into art.
I have some strong motivation for once, not sure exactly why.
Actually I think this blog has brought it on,
I've become enthralled by it.

A DJ asked me to make a flyer for his house party,
so this is my first rough pitch.
I'm sticking to Helvetica,
I think the disco ball is distracting and crazy enough as it is.
I'm stopping where I'm at because I'm done for the night,
it's too stuffy in this room & i need rest.
Here's hoping he digs!

I like it, even if nobody else does.

I think im going to forward this sketch and make this little guy into a real character.

Yes I've always hated comic sans...

I think it only works with the Sims.
Even then... there's a better font for the job.

What a horrible font, it sums up all thats wrong in the world.
It's used by people for any dreadful announcement.

• Lost your pet? Comic Sans.
• Stupid Fundraiser? Comic Sans.
• PTA Meeting? Comic Sans.
