I did it again. I fell behind on my posts and suddenly I’m playing catch-up months later. Well, I have been really busy. I went back to sketching constantly and building upon those ideas for some final illustrations. And in my phone I carry a list of ideas, projects, thoughts, etc. All of these are keeping me up at night and I am really trying to focus on what to work on first. Well, for now, here is a sample of some recent work…
It’s been a while since my last post. Almost a full year. But I’ve been actually working on a lot of new work. I’ll post and share during the next few weeks. Recently, I’ve been trying to find a balance between being a new dad and still working on new projects. I saw that Threadless was having a Mickey Mouse challenge and that seemed like the perfect opportunity to dive into something new. Here is my submission for the challenge. You can vote for it here: http://www.threadless.com/mickey/big-dreaming/
Spring is here and I’m feeling the allergies this week. Just checked the pollen level… it was a 10.2 out of 12. Which explains the worn-out, scratchy-eye, sneezing feeling I’m having the last week. The good news for that is I can stay in and work on a bunch of new ideas. This was the first of about 6 illustrations I’ve been working on. I had 2 different versions of this. Melting ice cream rainbow: one with a curve and the other straight down. Here it is up to vote over at Threadless: http://threadless.com/submission/416633/6_Flavors_of_Fun
These are the 2 versions I worked up during the process:
Worked on this piece over the last week. I was trying to find the right design for a shirt. Hoping the giant idea makes the cut. I would love to have a few of these to share if they get printed.
If you have time to throw a vote on this at threadless.com, it would be much appreciated:)
This may be the final rework on the Sea Monster. Started work on this a couple of years ago. Finally found time to finalize an idea with this and move on. Even the bravest of sailors fears coming into contact with a playful sea monster. This little guy has the best intentions, but all his toys end up busted and laying at the bottom of the sea.
I’ve been busy. Way to busy at work and after work. I have a “to do” list that keeps on growing. One of the things on my list was to submit a design to Threadless. They recently had a backpack design challenge. I thought this may be the perfect spot to use the “RoboPup” illustration. You can check it out and vote here if you would like: RoboPup vs Homework.
AND I was inspired to revisit this illustration after adopting a rescue dog from the Humane Society last weekend. I found this cute little guy on Sunday and I get to bring him home tomorrow! So excited. His name is Rocco and he came from a home with over 100 dogs. Sad story, but he is in really good shape and will be loved by the 3 of us at home. If you are interested in donating to them or reading more on the other dogs, here’s a link to the story at the Humane Society of Minnesota.
