Blog Sketch #126

Back in Time

I thought I'd posted this image last week, but apparently I just scanned it and never put it up on the blog. Here's the other half of my Ballai Llama dodgeball team image. We'll be putting them on on a team t-shirt. 
Through the magic of the internets and Blogger, I'm posting this in the past:)

Blog Sketch #215

Yay! I'm a Llama!

I've started playing dodgeball once a week here in LA for fun. The seasons are pretty short and the game is a ton more fun than I remember from junior high. It might be because I'm over 4 feet tall now and have some coordination. Anyway, with the new team in Westwood we chose the name the Ballai Llamas and I volunteered to draw up a logo for some t-shirts we're having made up. I think it came out pretty fierce.

Blog Sketch #214


So this weekend was spent with my lovely future wife working on some wedding related details. It's the nitty gritty details time, so I'm not sure I'd call it "fun" but it was nice to spend the entire weekend with her. Plus I picked out some kickass groomsmen gifts which I'm really happy about. 

I also designed up our wedding cake topper which my buddy Joe will be sculpting for us. D and I have a thing for monkeys - they're cute, funny, and mischievous - just like us. Here's what I came up with. Pretty darn cool, I think.

Looking Up and Out on Friday

Just a quickie sketch for Friday afternoon of a guy looking up and out to the future. Like me this week:)

Now that I look at this... where are his eyeballs?

Daily Sketch #211

Pretty Girl

Nothing in particular going on with this sketch, just a random doodle I decided to flesh out with some ink. I wasn't happy with the precision of the line I was getting with a pencil so to ink it went. Maybe this is because D started wearing her hair curly again from time to time for the first time in about a year:)

Daily Sketch #210

The Goon

One of my favorite comics on the market now is "The Goon" by Eric Powell. I think it's a truly unique voice in the world of comics these days, combining horror, humor, and elements of classic cartooning. In short it rocks. When I was at Diamond I was proud to be one of the first guys to champion the series when Eric was self-publishing through Albatross Exploding Press. Anyway, I think "The Goon" is well worth your time to check out. Here's a sketch inspired by issue #25 which I recently got around to reading.

I Left My Real Drawing At Home

So I did a couple of cool sketches at home last night, but of course I left them at the apartment. Sigh. I'd probably leave my head behind too if it wasn't attached. 

In any case, here's a quickie sketch to illustrate how I feel (I'm also on day 5 of fighting off a cold/post-San Diego Comic-Con SARS).

Daily Sketch #208

For My Guy Thomas

Who's been hard at work on The Last Mortal, our project together, which will hopefully be out soon. He's been plowing through pages and making massive improvements. It's awesome to be continually impressed by an artist you are working with. Anywhoo, here's a shot of Alec not obeying gun safety tips.

I Tried to Upload Earlier... Really I Did

I actually had two sketches in the can and ready to go, but Blogger was being tempermental and wouldn't upload them the couple of times I tried earlier this week. This week has been damn hectic despite D being on the East Coast for training for her new job. So I've been living like a bachelor, which apparently for me means I work 10-12 hour days, heat up pre-made meals, and watch the occasional crap movie or frustrate myself with a video game. Yeah, I'm a wild and crazy guy...

Here's a random sketch of a dude in a baseball cap.
