Tigger

Yesterday’s sketch_dailies topic was Tigger and I had a no-eye-contact-required meeting yesterday so I had a chance to doodle.  No reference though, so he’s a little removed from the original.

Bat Bites

One of the sketch_dailies topics this week was Batman, so I thought I’d doodle the guy chilling out.  Bet he packs a lunch since the ‘mobile probably wouldn’t fit in a drive-thru.

Iron Giant Silhouette

I’ve not been checking out the sketch_dailies topics while we were off on vacation, but I just saw that Iron Giant was one of this weeks.  It’s one of my all-time favorite movies and a true masterpiece, so I doodled out this quick silhouette of the big guy.

Today I finally got around to building one of the word shelves i thought up the other day.  It was also my first time getting to use the router I bought a few months back.

Jack and Jill Pallet Bench

Yesterday, I got to have an playdate at my buddies house.  We went and saw a movie, and then occupied the rest of the day ripping apart pallets and building this Jack and Jill bench.  We ran out of time, but it just needs to be sanded, the seats and table planked out, and then painted.

This was a little by-mail baby shower invitation we just did for our family.  Printed out as a two-sided 4″x6″ card.

While we were home on vacation I was able to borrow a rather expansive font of Caslon wood type from the proprietor of the Foolproof Press.  This particular assemblage was cut around 150 years ago.  I’m planning on using it do to some more mirrored text images.

This is a crappy cellphone pick of a shelf idea I had.  Have to see if I can find the time to try to make one.

Like, in the agricultural sense… duh.  Just a little funny design that popped in my head during our annual pilgrimage to the homeland.  Stay classy, farmers.

Thread Art

My sister-in-law was down for a visit and she always ends up making something really cool for us before she leaves.  This year she created the thread art of our last name below, so I decided to return the favor with a digital version for her family.
