Superhero Elementary–Picture Day: War Machine

Spoiler alert…I saw Avengers: Age of Ultron on Friday afternoon. And I will be going again this week with some friends. Excited to see War Machine finally in the mix here. Had to work on this right away. Yes, he’s smiling for the camera under his helmet.

Who Do You Choose?

Working on an 8-bit inspired design for a Threadless challenge. I have been sucked into the Doctor Who on Netflix lately, binge watching whenever I can. This is something really different than my usual work, but I did enjoy making some new concepts. It just went up for vote today HERE.

Mixed-Up Tapes

I used to make some pretty killer mix-tapes (and Mix CDs). The best part (besides sharing great music)? That was when I would draw the insert with song titles and other doodles. I miss those days. I guess it’s possible to give someone a mix still, but I think they would be pissed if I doodled all over their iPhone.

Robot In Love

Another Threadless piece. This was based on an early sketch and the challenge was to create something with one color. The black in this image would be created by the T-shirt color. I created this character about 5 years ago. I created a story with him dealing with the life of a robot: creation, life, rust and death. Heavily influenced by my own life path and I think that’s why I haven’t shared as much. Plus, I picture a lot of this to be published in motion and set to some of my favorite music–something I have no time to work on at this moment. But maybe I’ll start sharing more of those sketches…

New Designs: Sleepy Moon and Sea Monsters at Play

A couple of new pieces I worked on for a Kids’ Challenge at Threadless. They had okay scores, nothing phenomenal. I wish I had started earlier, I had a couple of stronger ideas but not enough time to pull them off.

Hug It Out, America

I’m counting down to the end of 2013. I realize I haven’t posted much on this blog during the year, so I’ll try and recap a lot of work. I have spent many late nights working on a variety of my own work, sketching, scanning, adding color, retouching, etc. All of this fell in between bottle feedings and hopefully 6 hours of sleep each night.

This is a piece I worked on around the beginning of October. The government had been shut down and  the news seemed rather dire every day. Negativity was flying from both sides. I just felt like we all needed to hug it out and make everything a little better.

New Cards

I’m working on a few new posts for some greeting card ideas. Just messing around with some textures and  characters. I have a ton of other sketches and new work that I’ll be posting in the next few days. It’s getting tough to work inside on such nice days. Saving my work time for the hours of 9PM-2AM. So I’m feeling a bit tired at the day job.
