Ray gun illustration

Here is a spaceman sketch from my doodling in one of my education classes.  I am always drawn to the individual man versus monster theme.  In the end, we all have to face our monsters with nothing but a ray gun and our own gumption.

The Lizard and the Jungle

This is my entry for this week’s Illustration Friday word of the week. The word of the week is, “Jump”. My charming and talented wife is in the process of creating a new website for my work. My WordPress blog is going to be integrated with the new site. The transition should go smoothly over the next few weeks and everything on the blog will remain the same. In the not too distant future my blog will become attached to my new portfolio site.

Watercolor illustration for Illustration Friday

My computer has returned to life. It’s alive. It’s alive… It’s alive! This watercolor is yet another Illustration Friday illustration. The word of the week is, “suspense”. I included the pen and ink sketch below the final work.

Caught in the act

Here once again is another illustration for Illustration Friday. Illustration Friday is a weekly art exhibit for illustrators and artists. The site was designed to challenge participants creatively to illustrate a word of the week. The word for this week is, “Highlight”. A Godzilla like monster instantly came into my mind.

Alligator monster encountered during a zoological survey.

This drawing came to me after I had started a sketch of an alligator monster. I imagined a man in charge of a zoological survey of an island similar to Skull Island from King Kong (If you don’t see the poor fellow, just look at the bottom corner of the picture). I dare say, to find a man’s true character, one should put him in charge of a zoological survey of Skull Island. Dangerous work, that goes without saying.

Sea monster tea time.

I will never grow tired of drawing monsters, whimsical or frightening. This is an example of a whimsical monster as compared to some of the terrifying monsters I have posted. I changed a few aspects of the drawing when I finished the illustration. I thought the monster should be friendlier looking and ended up changing the creature’s face. Friendly or not, that girl is taking a big risk having tea with a sea monster!

My drawing of H. P. Lovecraft’s all you can eat sushi monster

This is a drawing of a scary aquatic looking monster out and about on land. Looks like something that crawled out of one of H. P. Lovecraft’s stories. It also looks like a great find for an all you can eat sushi restaurant. However, this piece of sushi would put up a good fight.

My drawing of the legendary Chupacabra

This is my interpretation of the legendary Chupacabra of cryptozoology renown. The school where I teach art has a predominantly Hispanic population. My students occasionally mention the deadly and mysterious Chupacabra. This creature is supposedly the size of a small bear, with a row of spines reaching from the neck to the base of the tail. My students talk about the mythical creature as a sort of boogeyman.

Attack of the hundred foot teacher

During a mandatory staff meeting at the school where I teach art, the presenter mentioned the power of teaching. The presenter said that if we could bring together that educational power it would be a great force. I imagined a hundred foot tall teacher attacking Las Vegas and drew this sketch. I don’t think that was the idea the presenter was trying to convey.
