Niko and the Sword of Light

Amazon released an original show today that will be a cute adventure for all ages.  They released a pilot a few months ago for user voting, which also ended up winning an daytime emmy award.

Pizza Delivery

It’s got to be rough, spending your evenings saving the city, but then having to jump through hoops just to get a pizza delivered.

Birthday Card

My oldest son envisioned an eclectic assemblage of characters for a birthday card he wanted to give someone, so we ended up making this.

War Chicken

Yesterday my youngest son caused a conversation to ensue, within which the phrase “war chicken” was uttered, thus creating a compulsion within his father to doodle this.  My apologies internet.

Star Wars Ships

These are a few of the ships I had to cartoon up for that Star Wars retelling I have been working on.  Thought I would at least post something this weekend.

Skull Stencil

I was asked to help with a woodworking project and build a stencil for a large (18″ tall) skull that would be painted and then areas be cut away.  I redrew the design to clean it up and make it symmetrical, but the overall size exceeded what I can cut on my Silhouette Cameo.  So I broke it into two large decals, with registration marks in the eye (will be cut out anyway) and then made another smaller decal to cover the seam so no paint would sneak through.  Hopefully it will come out well, this is one project where someone else gets to do all the woodworking.

Wonder Woman

I took our boys to go see the Wonder Woman movie a few weeks back and just this weekend had enough down time (not allocated to making stuff for others) that I could doodle this mighty heroine.  If you’ve followed my work for any amount of time, you may notice that I don’t often draw the female form.  I find it difficult to capture their physiology without reverting to ridiculous comic book proportions, so I normally just avoid it all together.  This is something I need to work on though, so I gave her a shot.

I also started a video capture of the inking process, which I tried to hurry through and was defeated continually by her left hand.  Eventually I gave up.  Observe my failures below.

Storybook Characters

Story Characters

I was asked to help illustrate a story book as a gift for someone leaving an organization, and this is one of the model sheets I made up for the different support characters.  Overall, I think the book did a good job humorously capturing the many feats of this beloved colleague.

I did the initial sketches on paper and in Krita, but the finished art was done all in Inkscape.  I built the characters as interchangeable parts for consistency across the pages and to speed things up.  I ended up having to recreate so many different hands and arm/leg positions that I don’t know if it really made anything faster, but they definitely looked the same throughout.

Cutthroat Chicken

When the show Cutthroat Kitchen first came out, my youngest accidentally said Cutthroat Chicken, and that has pretty much stuck in our household.  For some reason, I just got a visual of that for the first time a few days ago and thought I would doodle it.
