Oldy but Newy
























This is a redo of an old picture of mine. I liked the picture before, but this is better I think. Anyway, I hope it is. Otherwise I ruined it.

Happy Belated Christmas!

Caveman






















Whoops! I forgot to do the Illustration Friday thing for the week, but dat's okey.
Here is a caveman.

Weird Baby






















Not Ramona, incidentally. It's a baby that was in Life in 1935. If all went well this is now an old person.

Salamander

Some Guy






















When I draw a person without looking at a reference, the proportions always come out a little weird. Actually, that happens when I look at references too, but this guy I just made up.

Sardou (Apparently)






















I'm feeling a bit retro.

Illustration Friday: Balloon






















The only way to travel, if you ask me.

Illustration Friday: Opinion

















Some people have opinions, and some people have really strong opinions.

Usually I go for really obvious, but this time I went for slightly confusing.

Eyeball Knife of Destiny


The much ballyhooed eyeball knife of destiny.

Illustration Friday: Pretend


















Very first thing that came to mind, so I went with it.

Illustration Friday: Wise






















Okay, maybe everyone's going to do owls, but what's more wise than an owl? The answer is of course an owl with a big Gandalfy beard.

Keytar






















I wanted to do a new self-portrait for the "about" page on my site. I'll put the same description here that I did there:

"Here's a photo of me from 1989 when I was still touring with the Romanian New Wave outfit Super Lāzeru (Super Laser)."

19th Century Wawoo

Bebé






















A weird caricature, but I think the essential cuteness remains!

Illustration Friday: Vacant



















A very straightforward interpretation of the theme, but that's because you're not viewing this illustration with one of the more exclusive membership options available to you. For example, if you subscribed to this blog at the "Triple Bronze Crown" level you'd be getting a far more clever illustration, and at only $49.95 per month (annual services charges apply).

I mention that introductory membership because I know that some people are on a budget, but certainly there are more exclusive memberships available for those with greater purchasing power. The rewards increase at each level too. As an example, with the "Platinum Acorn Cluster" membership you'll also receive in the mail our charming "Tube Sock of the Month" and a complimentary subscription to Cat Fancy magazine (subject to additional fees, where available).

Why Galaxies Are Flat


An accidental model of how galaxies flatten out. Not terribly accurate, obviously, but still interesting.

H. H. O. W.






















I woke up early today (because Ramona woke up early today), but after I got her back to sleep I managed to knock out this Halloween card. I have to confess that I'm not feeling that Halloweenish this year. What is it? The election stuff maybe? I'm sure next year when we force Ramona into a Halloween costume I'll be more into it.

Illustration Friday: Repair



















Just in under the wire on this one (again)! I'll have to do my next one before it's Friday again. This was a real quickie done with a pen and watercolor pencil, with extra colors in Photoshop.

Candyman






















Today I came across this drawing I did a while ago of Tony Todd in Candyman. I forgot about this; it's not bad, actually.

Illustration Friday: Late






















Late again! And drunk! Again! This wedding is never going to happen!

I was almost late in posting this, but I wasn't, and also I wasn't drunk (not my scene). If I had been late that would have been fitting perhaps, and if the topic had been "early" and I was late, that would have been ironic. Instead it is neither fitting nor ironic, and certainly not interesting enough to merit a paragraph.

This is pen with Crayola marker, some water, and then some color added in Photoshop. I don't know what medium that makes this, but let's say digital, because how else could you be looking at it on your computer? Eh? Eh?

Tough Guy

















This guy was made in Zbrush. I should do a turntable video when I upload 3d stuff (or do better renders). I do like the modeling here though.

Illustration Friday: Strings



















Mariachis hate broken guitar strings! Also, a lot of them have their strumming arms stuck like that from playing guitar all the time. This is gouache on paper with some digital touch-ups.

Forest Gooblin






















And this one's gouache with a little bit of digital sweetening (highlights, mostly).

Gouache Head






















This one's just gouache, on a smoother paper.

Distinguished Gentleman






















I want to get back to doing less digital stuff and more traditional stuff. This one's gouache and colored pencil. I like it, but I have some things to learn about gouache!

As ice cream season draws to a close (up here anyway), I thought I would celebrate the multitudinous joys thereof.

Illustration Friday: Packed






















If there are two things we love as Americans, it's packing clowns into little cars and packing college students into telephone booths. Here's my proposal for the logical extension of those time-honored traditions: packing clowns and college students into a big telephone booth-esque sedan.
