I ran across an amazing collection of vintage photos from Japan and decided to sketch one of them. I think maybe I'll use them as inspiration for some Jedi character designs; who can ever see enough different Jedi? I know I can't...


My samurai has clearly been eating too much sushi and sake and stopped working out since the original photo was taken.

I'm trying to work "al prima" and put down opaque colors directly, particularly as color practice for when I ever get my lazy rear end around to doing some pastels again.

Coffee Shop Sketches

Visited a new coffee shop, Coffee N Cream, in Allen. Nice place...

Random doodles last night while watching TV. Trying to work more with basic designs and reduce things down to simple line and shape.


Starting to kind of get back into the swing of things...kind of...

It's the Progressive Insurance girl!

Actually I think her real apron is white.


Random creature sketches:

Sketch dump 2008

Hey folks! I'm starting up a blog to hopefully motivate me to draw and sketch more. Sadly, I did precious little in 2008, but here are a few I did in Autodesk Sketchbook Pro 2009 (and maybe a little Photoshop or Corel Painter) soon after I got my TabletPC, a Lenovo X60 (a fantastic little convertible pen-abled laptop).
