I was a moron last Friday and left my sketchbook and little drawing set on a plane in Atlanta. I didn’t notice until I was on my next flight pulling away from the gate. I put in a lost and found ticket so I’m crossing my fingers hoping someone finds them and turns them in. (anybody got some pull with Delta’s lost and found?)
Sadly, these are many of the drawings that were in it:
I’m trying to push my posing a little bit, so who better to start with then ‘ol crazy legs Spider-man. I built most of this in Inkscape trying to minimize the number of shape defining lines. I might find time to shade it someday.
The signature edition of Iron Giant came out on BluRay a few days ago, filled with tons of great special features and commentary. The film has also been remastered with some new/enhanced scenes added. I’m also excited about the art book that’s coming out on the 20th. I had to doodle the big lug.
Star Trek Beyond – Spock
My oldest son and I went and saw the newest Star Trek movie a few weeks back and this was my church bulletin doodle that Sunday. It’s pretty horrible.
Adorable Owl color
I thought this little guy looked like he needed some color, so I tried to do a quick wash on the computer. We also made a trip recently to our local second hand LEGO store, and I picked out the pieces to make two-toned, squatter, slightly kookier version of the inspiration for this doodle.
A while back I drew a logo for our quaint little clapboard church. So, they of course decided to build a new worship center and they’ve been asking for a similar logo. This is what I finally came up with.

Rowing to Church
A few weeks back, we got a pretty crazy amount of rain on a Saturday evening. Our sound guy for church was flooded into his neighbourhood, so I got an early morning distress call, and headed in to make sure the service happened. My trek to church in the morning wasn’t quite this adventurous, but it was close.
This little guy is a direct result of seeing Mihai Marius Mihu’s too-cute LEGO owl. I now need to raid my local second hand LEGO store to gather enough pieces to make my own.
I scribbled this little guy out in a meeting, inspired by the Helldivers skull logo. I also tried to keep the lines really light and took a picture before shading it. Below are three different attempts to clean up the inks. Left: in The GIMP using color levels to strip out everything but the black (learned from here). Center: taking the levels one into Inkscape and tracing the bitmap with the brightness cutoff threshold at 0.55. Right: again starting with the levels one, and having The GIMP define a path around the lines, then stroking them with a 1pt solid line, and filling.
I like the Inkscape trace the best. I’ll probably color this guy sometime…
I’ve been pretty busy lately and have severely lacked in the posting department. What little I have drawn I’ll be posting over the next day or so, and hopefully get back to more regular posting.
This was a lumberjack I started, but didn’t really finish. Started as a church doodle.
