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.
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.
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.
