Three Bears

I created this illustration of Goldilocks and the Three Bears for the Illustration Friday website.  The word this week is, three. I used pen and ink and added the color digitally.

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.

Pirates and Aliens

Here are two recent drawings I created.  One is a fun pirate drawing I made during a meeting and the other is an alien mercenary I created when I was sketching over the weekend.

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.

Horrid Eye Monster Man

This is an illustration I created for a client.  It was one of the sketches for some RPG artwork that I ended up finishing up in black and white.

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.

Monster Boat Attack!

Not even boats are safe from monster boat attacks!   This was a sketch I had started for Inktober.  I finished inking it and now present it to the world.

Feeling A Little Overwhelmed

Made it about halfway on my Inktober sketches.  The busyness and chaos of life won.  I created a sketch of how I feel sometimes.  Fighting way too many parts at once.

Armored Fish Creature

I created a Devonian looking armored fish creature for this illustration.  I based the creature loosely on the Dunkleosteus.  The University of Michigan Museum of Natural History in Ann Arbor has the skull of a prehistoric armored fish.  I saw it when I was a kid and it left an indelible impression.
