SF Street Style Sketch 12/14/10

A new street style sketch. This lady caught my eye because with her all black outfit and her bright green tights she looked like a chic version of the Wicked Witch of the West.

SF Street Style Sketch 12/08/10

Every day when I walk to work I pass through a bustling area in downtown San Francisco. Everyone is always so put together and I regularly spot such interesting and fabulous outfits that I decided I needed to start recording them somehow. Street style blogs are kind of a guilty pleasure of mine, but I'm not the kind of person that can just go up to someone and ask to take their picture out of the blue. But sketching is another matter! This person in particular caught my attention because of her clear/polka dot umbrella and her quilted fabric boots. 

As seen at: Howard walking towards 2nd 
Recorded: From memory once I got to work

Working on a new project - more to come!

Kitty Comic!

It has been quite some time since I've last updated my blog. Things have been pretty busy around here and I haven't had a chance to do much artwork just for myself. But things are starting to settle into a good routine, and I'm hoping to start back up with my own illustration practice more regularly. 
One of the things that happened since my last post is that I got a kitten! Now he and the older cat amuck together all over the apartment. This little comic represents just a fraction of the things they try to eat (I just stopped them from ripping apart our Robots! planning notebook!). More coming soon!

Goodbyes are always awkward - Issue 2 Page 3

As Leonard prepares to see his son off to school, we've had a new kitty addition to the Robots! in 3D household.  So as we work on planning out the next chunk of pages in our buffer we've got two fuzzy beings running pell-mell all over the apartment. It has been hectic (to say the least), but the comic must continue! So tune in next week to see Leo Jr. off and to witness the conclusion of that pigeon's dastardly plan.

Robots! in 3D concept art

Robots! in 3D Issue #2 will begin next Friday, but until then enjoy some brand new concept art! This sketch features a character that will be introduced next issue and will become a major player in the Robots! in 3D universe. I am very much looking forward to drawing him into the storyline.

Art update!

Lots of exciting news over at Robots! in 3D! Adam and I just finished the first issue of the comic and we're cranking away at issue #2. You can read it through from the very beginning here. In my spare time I've also been working on some side painting projects/ commissions.

DIY Dress Form

Things have been a bit silent here on the blog lately, but that doesn't mean I haven't been working on any projects. I've been taking a little break from my picture book illustration project (a break but not abandoned!) to spend some time really focusing on building a page buffer for Robots! in 3D.  We're now about a quarter of an issue ahead of what you see live online and I hope that we can gain even more ground in the next few weeks despite the fact that Adam and I will both be busier than we've been all year (wishful thinking, I know). If  you haven't been keeping up with the comic, check out the newest page! We're very close to finishing Issue #1 and I'm very excited about the coming issues. Aside from Robots! there's one other project that's taken up the rest of my free time these past few months and I finally finished last week! Click through the jump to read more!

A Wrinkle in Time - WIP

A Wrinkle in Time illustration: inked! I'm getting really excited about this one though I still need to do the text on the banner. Anyone have any lettering ideas?

A Wrinkle in Time- WIP

Starting to sketch out my next illustration. Since this one is going to be much more complex than the last two I opted to sketch it out in Photoshop first. Next I'll print out the sketch and use my lightbox to refine and enlarge it. I'm looking forward to this one - A Wrinkle in Time is one of those books that has always stuck with me ever since I first read it and this was always one of my favorite scenes. Hopefully I can do it justice!
