Character design for some thing never happened.
Just the way it goes...

Inking A Favorite Artist's Sketch

Every once in a bit, I like to warm up by inking another artist's work.  In this case, I chose a fantastic sketch by the great Skottie Young.

The original pencil sketch can be seen (and purchased) over at http://skottieyoung.com

Oscar The Grouch & Friend sketch

And there you go.

THBBFT!...says Bill The Cat doodle

Berkeley Breathed blew my innocent li'l mind with his brilliant Bloom County strip.
Only during the '80's could a coked-out cat be one of the stars of a "kiddie strip"...

Four String Muppet: Floyd

Been on a Muppet kick lately.  I don't know why, but I'm not complaining.  I've loved drawing Mr. Henson & Co.'s darlings since I was a wee-bit li'l nard.

NOT Max...!

Another one of those work break-time sketches (man, I love drawing in ballpoint), sitting in the car, waiting to go back into Shawshank Wholesale.  Rough as heck, but it makes me happy.
The little fella's dialogue is a response to a co-worker who thought I had just drawn Max from 'Wild Things'.  Hadn't even dawned on me.
I was actually thinking of Miyazaki at the time...
And there you are :^)

Oh, SIlly Kabloo!

Goofy little sketches like these, in moments of freedom when I'm not chasing my youngest around the house, that make me happy...

This is not a slingshot...

The first image of one of my WIPs.
And there you are.

A Whistling Pig...

Pen & ink of my dear Queenie, riding her snappy little Vespa.
And there you are.

My Viking Years

Woah!  Its been awhile!
Well, here's a character sketch for a book a LOOOONG time in the making, which happens to be a  memoir of sorts, and a "companion" piece to the 'Waffles' sketch.
And there you are.
PS: Yup, that shield is a nod to a favorite 80's game of my youth...

No Time For Waffles!

A ink test thingamabob for a children's book idea of mine.
Little man's essentially a seven year old version of me. I did indeed refer to my mother as "woman" when I was actin' a bit dramatic...
And there you are.
