Trying to discover some nice limited palettes. BTW, if anyone can recommend a waterproof ink that IS ACTUALLY WATERPROOF, please, please by all means let me know.

A quick sketch of my neighbours house. Also I've set up my own blog that suites my habits a lot better than this one. Let's me queue up sketches in advance so I can just scan them when it's more convenient for me. Thank you for letting me join in, I got a lot out of my brief stint here.

Here's the answer to your question David. A curious poster ruled by its massive title... There's apparently something in the air this year causing my clients to select HUGE frickin' titles.

Was down with my Background Layout class doing sketching at Pioneer Square yesterday.
I did a lot more drawing my student's work than I did on my own, but I did get this in at the end of the day.

Little too busy today. Had to put the Spam Story on hold.

Cowboy up!

Clearly I'm no Howell, though happily the style I'm shooting for is intentionally not so fine either.
I kept having old underused and under-appreciated pens die on me.
What do you use for paper and ink for your work Howell?

I could be drawing myself into a corner here.
How am I gonna' give the evil business associate a chance to poison the drink this guy was just served?

So I decided play with visual storytelling a bit and go a little further with the spam story from yesterday.
With that in mind, here's the text that caught my imagination:

My Dearest One,


My father died on july 13th 2008 Two years ago, It is sad to say that my Daddy passed away mysteriously. Though his sudden death was linked and suspected to have been masterminded by his business associate who traveled with him at that time, according to Doctor report My Daddy was poison. But God knows the truth!!. My Father deposited the sum of Eight Million Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars. (USD$8,200,000.00) in one of the Bank in Ivory Coast during Liberian crisis..

Sure it's full of typos, but there is a sort of narrative that I haven't seen in these kinds of scams before.
So anyway, I'll be hanging with this for a while. We'll see how it goes. This is how I imagine the fateful day for "Daddy" might begin.

Some scribbles from another paintchat session:
  • Wondered how to go about doing a pokemon-like design.
  • Had to explain studying drapery to someone.
  • Played with the idea of the frill-necked on the lizard character helping the sound from a trumpet travel further.
  • The tree and tits has no explanation, really.

Inspired by a bit of e-spam I received this morning.

I made a short video of me drawing this bug thing on my cintiq. You can watch the video on You Tube at [LINK]

Sketching in ink feels a lot less threatening than it use to be, just need to watch my proportions more carefully at the start. (Reference)

Been a while! Well, it's the start of a new term at AiPD so that must mean ol' Albert shows up again.
Happy spring everybody!

Sketch for a T-shirt for a race this fall to benefit cats. I think it would be more fun to watch the cats race instead of the people.

Had fun playing around in a japanese paintchat. Also sorry about the infrequency of my posts but as hard as I am trying to not think about it, I find way too many of my sketches too embarrassing to show off.

Hey, here's today's watercolor attempt. Not quite what I wanted so I'm repainting...

This really bad sketch is the result of rising at 4:30 am sick to my stomach and immortalizing the concept I'd been dreaming about.

In the dark.

I'm amused enough by the thing that I may draw it up for real. Or maybe not...

Here's today's watercolor effort titled "followed". he he...

Tighter sketch of this dude's face. At this point I'm searching for cross-contours. They had me slim him down a bit. I think i might sneak a few more pounds on him for the final though, because he looks rounder to me than this.

Finally got a scanner so I can start posting stuff from my sketchbook.

This might be my last post for a couple weeks. It's gotten pretty busy and while I'm sketching away like mad, most are for commissioned projects. Anyway this is a page of thumbnails for a Puss In Boots theater poster.
It's great seeing all the sketching you guys have been doing!

Here's Plan B. Still haven't heard back from the client, but they can't really think this one is a drama, can they?
