Drawing of an alien stranded on a barren planet.  

Here is a pen and ink drawing I created of an alien stranded after its ship crashed.  The alien is assessing its surroundings and realizing its bleak chances of survival on a barren planet.  I tried some different line work and solid shadows on the boulders in this drawing.

Skateboarding Cosmonaut

I created this illustration of a skateboarding cosmonaut for the Illustration Friday website.  It has been a very long time since I posted something on that site.  The word this week is, Skate.  Thought I would have a cosmonaut on a skateboard.  That cosmonaut is getting some serious air, dude!  I created the illustration with ink and added the color digitally.

I’m giving InkTober a go #inktober #inktober2016

My buddy Mike convinced me to give InkTober a try.  Every October there is a drawing challenge to make one ink drawing a day the entire month. An illustrator by the name of Jake Parker created InkTober in 2009 as a challenge to improve inking skills and develop positive drawing habits.  I might fall short of thirty one drawings, October is a busy month for me.  I’m posting two this first time.  trick-or-treat-batman

Good Old Gamorrean Guard

I illustrated one of the Pig Guards from Jabba the Hutt’s Palace in Return of the Jedi.  These big pig men are called Gamorrean guards.  My brother thinks they are out of place in the Star Wars universe.  They look like they escaped from one of J. R. R. Tolkien’s books. I have to agree with him.  However, they easily lend themselves to cartooning because they already look cartoonish.  The Gamorrean guards are in Ralph McQuarrie’s wonderful original concept artwork for Return of the Jedi.

Sand People always ride single file!

Here is another one of my Star Wars fan illustrations.  This one is of a Tusken Raider.  Also referred to as Sand People they are indigenous to the planet Tatooine.  Moreover, Sand People always ride single file to hide their numbers.  I’m looking forward to watching the new J.J. Abrams Episode VII later this week. SandpeopleStarWars

It’s a trap!


I made a few Star Wars drawings with a sharpie.   I added the color in Photoshop.  Here are the first two, Chewbacca and Admiral Ackbar.  As Chewie would say, “WAGRRRRWWGAHHHHWWWRRGGAWWWWWWRR.”

Here are two more illustrations.  The Medusa illustration is new while the astro-cosmonaut is one of my older ink illustrations.  I’m trying some techniques of coloring my inked line art in Photoshop.
