Drawing From My Visit To The Natural History Museum

This summer I stopped by the Harvard Museum of Natural History in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  I inked in this sketch of a squid I created at the museum.  The museum has an amazing collection of life from around the globe.

I was working on some illustrations for a client and came up with this illustration in the process.  It is a drawing of a woman facing some unspeakable horror in the dark woods near an old rune stone.

Attack of The Giant Ant!

When I made this illustration I was thinking of the 1954 black and white science fiction monster film,”Them”.  This illustration is another tribute to my love of monster movies.

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.

Giant Deadly Mantis.

I created a sketch of a praying mantis during a meeting.  I added a few details later to create a giant deadly mantis.  I was thinking of The Deadly Mantis a 1957 science-fiction monster 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.
