Monk Sketch

This is another one of the drawings I made over the summer break.  I felt inspired to create an Eastern monk.

My fan art illustration of Skeletor from Masters of the Universe. #Skeletor #He-Man #MastersoftheUniverse

My fan art illustration of Skeletor from Mattel’s Masters of the Universe franchise. Skeletor is the archenemy of He-Man and is a muscular blue humanoid with a hood over his bare-bone skull.  He was always trying to conquer Castle Grayskull so he could rule Eternia.  He was also always finding excuses to tie up Teela the captain of the royal guards.  A friend sent me some messages about nostalgic He-man stuff and I had He-man on my brain all week.

My fan art illustration of Patrick and Spongebob as adventures. #Spongebob #Spongebobfanart #loadofbarnacles

My fan art illustration of Patrick Star and Spongebob SquarePants as old school role playing adventures. Made the illustration just for fun when I was working on illustrations for a client ( That is no load of barnacles).  I put a D20 dice on the top of Spongebob’s horned helmet just to add to his geeky credentials.  Looks like Nickelodeon’s dynamic duo is ready to storm the dungeon and fight some dragons.

Smells Like Teen Angst

It has been awhile since I posted.  I did some sketching today at a school meeting.  We were forced to watch a film about teen angst, even though I work with elementary kids.  The film had a feeling of persistent worry about various trivial things.  I drew some of the angry young people from the educational film.

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears.

I made some sharpie sketches of Romans for my fourth grade students.  We are learning about Ancient Rome and I needed some simple figure drawings for the students to use as reference.   We are talking about the horrible fate of Pompeii, next week.

Clowning around in 2017

Happy 2017!  Here is a sketch of a clown that I made with a ballpoint pen during a meeting.  I was thinking of the clown as a supposedly jolly figure of innocuous, friendly entertainment, not the more recent popular image of a scary clown.   However, even I disliked and feared clowns when I was a kid.

Owl Lady!

I was knocking around the idea of a Gothic themed setting for some drawings.  This is a drawing of a member of the Fraternity of Feathers.  This society of like-minded individuals fight against the dark and mysterious setting.  They battle the foreboding, fear and dread of the haunted land.  This member of the Fraternity of Feathers has a giant owl companion that aids her in her fight against the darkness.
