This guy was short and odd-shaped, so I think some of him got lost in translation to a taller fellow.

Stride

This is from a couple weeks ago, but I'm posting it as a reminder to myself that good drawings are in there, I just have to keep digging for them. Ah, I already feel better having something up.

Nothing new lately

This has been a horrible week for drawing. I keep trying but my hand is doing its own thing. It's completely frustrating and becoming such a nuisance that nothing I make is satisfying. I'm beginning to wonder if it's the tool I'm using. I know it's not, but I'm even switching to different pens and pencils with hope of unlocking by jam. Then I question if I'm using the wrong size paper. Am I limiting myself by using small pads? They didn't bother me before, but maybe my mind needs a new space to play.

The one good thing about all this is that I know it never lasts forever, and it often means that a breakthrough is just around the corner which will lead to a new plateau. The plateau isn't the attractive part, but the fact that it's one step up is. I'll keep plugging away. I hope that verbalizing this is a way to get the funk out of my head so I can stop thinking so much and just draw.

Gorilla

I always feel a little uncomfortable when someone asks me to work on a design for them. It's just not what I do. The request for this was to have a rampaging gorilla in a comic book style with some sort of explosion icon behind him. I really like these guys, so I agreed. I'm glad I did. I learned a bunch of Photoshop doing this. I also created a cleaned up, colored image – something I never do on my own.

Swimmer

I think I made this up. I'll look at someone's drawings and then find their style invading my mind. That's a good thing.

I drew this today. Damn, had I known, I would have gone to drawing before the last 25 minutes. She has wings tattooed on her back. Cool.

Doggles

Doggles

My wife and I thought we had it made. Goggles for dogs – Doggles. I wrote it down in my trusty idea book to dig up when fortune called. We’d make them cool, like Bono’s dog would wear – colored plastic bug eyes to keep out dirt and bugs.

This weekend we were at The Grove and what do we see at the little doggie boutique? Doggles. Goggles for dogs. Poof. There went our fortune.
