Industry Update

Here are some more images for the little Industry project that I'm working on with a buddy in San Diego. I've sketched these rough images from the proposal he wrote.

The image below is just a rough line sketch. This is how I layout am image before I add any detail. W I'm out, I'm actually falling asleep as I'm typing this. Wish me luck. Hope you like them.

Here is a sketch I did awhile ago and forgot to post it. This is one of the characters, Samson, from my graphic novel that I'd like to finish before I'm 50!! I wrote the rough draft three years ago. I originally wrote it as a screen play then decided it would work better as a graphic novel and I would have more control over the project. Oh yeah, that and I couldn't get any one but my wife to read it. (and she's not a real fan of the comic stuff, more proof that she must really love me. or she just wanted me to shut up about it and get to bed before 3am)

I've always wanted to do my own comic, so hopefully I'll be able to finish it some day. Hope you like the pic.

Sneak Peek

Ok, I know I said I have a bunch of different projects going on. Unfortunately some of them I can't talk about just yet. Buuuuut, I can give a sneak peek. So here is a cover project I'm working on with a very talent writer here in Cleveland. Nothing is set in stone yet, I'm still doing some concepts and waiting to hear back. So wish me luck and I hope you like these rough drafts, or at least the small portion of them that I'm showing.

Take care,

Industry Project

Here are some images I did this weekend for a little project I'm working on with a friend in San Diego. These are my first rough sketches. They're very basic, just some pencil and ink. I've got a couple things going right now. I'm having a lot of fun working on them. It's pretty cool to do some images for other people when you are just working with the description they provided you with. It's kind of nerve racking while I'm waiting to hear what they think about the images . Speaking of which, let me know what you think.

Take care

Craaaazzzy Busy!!!!

Well, I haven't had much time to do any art work lately. Work has been chaotic to say the least, and I've been having a blast with my family. I usually do some art work late at night and on the weekend. To add to the craziness I recently came to the sudden realization that, well, I am reeeaaallly out of shape. So I've been trying to go to the gym after the kids go to bed. Needless to say this has cut into my art time.

I've been trying to doodle when ever I get a free second. This past week I had a ton of administrative stuff to do at work on top of the normal load. The only positive to admin work is that it usually gives me a few minutes to doodle while my computer is running. So here are a few I did this week. They are quickies, but I had a blast doing them.

The trees are inspired by a story I am reading over for a very talented friend. They are not realated to the story, but popped in my head while I was reading it. I hope to have more about this one in the future. Besides, I've got this weird thing for trees. I grew up running around in the woods, and love the outdoors. I feel at peace when I'm there. Yeah, I'm cheesy, can't help it. Ok enough about the trees.

These random faces are just that, some random doodles. Hope you like them. Let me know what you think.
