Alien monster inspired by the film, This Island Earth

This is an alien creature inspired by the 1955 movie, This Island Earth.  I remember watching the movie one Saturday at my grandparent’s home in Chagrin Falls, Ohio.   The film is full of campy elements, but it deserves respect as one of the more ambitious science fiction adventures of its time.  Mystery Science Theater 3000 also used the film to great effect.

Zig and Sharko fan art

This is my fan art based on the show Zig and Sharko.  Zig and Sharko is a French animated series produced by Xilam Animation and directed by Olivier Jean-Marie.   The show is about a conflict on and around a volcanic island between Zig, a hyena and Sharko, a shark.   The conflict is fueled by Zig’s constant attempts to eat the mermaid Marina, whom Sharko loves.   My son enjoys the show and calls it Shark and Mermaid.  We have been watching the show together on Netflix.  I like the whimsical style of the cartooning on the show.

A good old Robot illustration

A robot illustration I started during a meeting and finished at home.  I designed the robot using a mix of long rectangles and ovals.   Mixing up shapes can give your creations varied designs.

Lobster-monster-man. He is on a mission to free all the captive lobsters of the world.

Another meeting created monster.  I think I took some of the design from a Japanese Godzilla monster or something from the Mighty Morphing Power Rangers.  I can’t remember exactly what image inspired this lobsterman monster.

Frustration banana monster of rage!

I made this monster a while back during a particularly monotonous meeting.  I think my very real frustration came out in the odd design and rage of this creature.  He looks very livid about something.

A little girl and her monster. 

I created this illustration over the weekend.  Not sure what the story is behind this one, but the two of them seem to get along.  She is just an angry little girl standing by her equally angry friend monster.

Watercolor T-Rex painting I made while painting with my son

I did some watercolor painting with my son on Friday.  I made this quick illustration of a T-Rex while my four year old son had a good time painting shapes and colors.  Scanning watercolors on my Canon printer always distorts the color.  Still, it came out fairly close to the original.
