Just wanted to point out there is a whole new page added to my gallery, making for TWICE as many images on display, for those of you who don't check it daily....

Peep my "Designers" page at Drawl Graphic.

Fun with Science. Pt. 1

The other day, I drew an ugly person. This day was like many days for one reason, I draw ugly people often. I like ugly people. Ugly people are like regular people with more character. I also like to draw people who are miserable, bored, or just disaffected. Happy people are just not as much fun, and if make them happy, they are usually insanely, maniacally happy, to the point of being painful.

But, just for fun, I decided to do some normal looking people being regularly happy, just for fun. I gave myself just a few minutes each, so I could just keep them sketchy and wouldn't get hung up on making them perfect or anything. Here are the results.


1) a cute, nymph-ish girl, looking happy, maybe the eyes were a bit much, but happy and kind of cute, right? But she needs a man...


2) so here he is. He's a scruffy, hip and with it dude, healthy and fit, with a 5 o'clock shadow and tastefully tussled hair. Not bad, he might be smiling a bit too hard, and once again, the eyes are probably overdoing it a bit. A strapping young lad nonetheless. But now they need some sort of father figure....


3) whoops. my whole death zombie infatuation got the better of me again. He is a handsome bloke, full of charm and fatherly love, but his eyeball popped out. Well, two out of three ain't bad.

So then I took the girl and do her up Illustrator Style. That's fun. So here is an in progress shot of what she looks like so far.
(psst....I bet if you click the image, you could see it larger! whoa!)



As you can see, a lot has changed. her eyes are open, she got some hastily drawn jewelry, and her hair changed entirely (her barber may have been a bit hasty, so I will see if I can't go in and clean it up a bit).

She is sure to undergo more change by the end of it, so stay tuned! Oh sweet anticipation!

Munny Shot.


You've heard of a Munny, right? They are all the rage with the Kid Robot crowd (or, if you are from MPLS, the Robot Love crowd). And we here at Drawl Graphic just so happen to be a part of that crowd!

So each of us got our very own Munny to design however our little hearts desire. Oh the fun and joyous rapture! Adam is rocking his hard already, and Lindsay is posing for pics with hers. So I thought it only right that I mention it too, and pose for a pic with mine, since i have no art made for it yet...


Did you feel that!?! That was the excitement and electricity in the air!

In all seriousness, I am looking forward to rocking this project to it's core. It is going to be an extravaganza.

cute cat, large man.

here is a new piece i have created. it has a cute animal, and features a large man.
i had two requirements, and that was to have a cute animal, and it had to feature a large man. the third and final requirement was to have them interacting in someway, and the man had to balance a tiny cake on one finger.
click it to view it bigger....

Mission Accomplished.
