Cool calm and rational.

Do you ever feel like you've been strapped to a desk for too long and all you want to do is flip your desk and smash your chair into a wall?

yeah, me neither.

Hmmm. Anyway. I've been looking at some people's artwork lately that makes me want to get a little loose. Maybe it's because it's hot in my studio but I feel like my clothes don't fit right today.

Die Everyday

I started a new website. Another one? Why? Mainly because I loved the URL I thought up and I had to buy it.

I proudly introduce!

What treasures will this new site hold? Could be anything!*

On an unrelated note, I am working on new gift cards and testing different paper for large art prints. So as soon as I'm happy with the quality they'll be available at the usual places (Renegade Craft Fair, Design Collective, the Drawl Graphic Etsy store, etc...).

* - could also be nothing...

Who's that dude(tte)? : Part 2

I did some more playing around today. I'm avoiding doing real work today. It's cold and rainy. So that's my excuse.

dark and moody. just like my high school trapper-keeper.

whoa! .... i don't really have anything else to say about that.

who's that dude(tte)?

This week was hectic. Now that it's the weekend and I'm finally able to catch my breath, I wanted to relax and zone out, just draw and mess around. Now that I'm done, I'd say it's definitely influenced by Lindsay.

lindsay said it looks like my sister...

I might do more with it. I might not. It didn't really have a purpose in the first place. So next time I want to just chill for a minute maybe I'll pull it back out.

poker night.

I made a poker night invite for DG Inventive, here's the remixed blog version (there's a lot of blank space for writing on the actual invite...)

royal flush? more like foil mush, right?

And here's the line up of characters...

a fearsome king indeed.

queen of the crop.

that's a mighty fine 'stache, jack.

That was a fun project...

invite THIS.

Here's more invites I made for DG Inventive. They are for a young girl's birthday party and a pool party, respectively. They were supposed to be fun, breezy little illustrations with flat color. Huzzah for fun.

i was sixteen once. and I nearly lost my driver's license before i turned 17. fact.

pool party? i wish i were invited to a pool party once in a while. but alas...

So there you have it. I hope you consider buying a set for your next Sweet Sixteen / Pool Party.

August 8, 2007 the rough.

Here's a couple more gem patterns. I probably should have specified in the previous post, but the target audience is "teen girl"...

another gem-y pattern.

dizzy-ing coordinate.

I'm working with predetermined color palette, if you were wondering. Although I've been known to use pink in my work (kind of a lot, I guess) I usually don't use it in so many shades. And with so much purple.

Atari (aka "Boo-Too)

My dog Atari is one righteous dude.

he's a real swell guy dog.

PS... This is the counterpoint to my previous post about my other dog, Twink.

sowing seeds (bones).

I've been posting bits and pieces of this piece when I could, but it's finally all together...

I'm not positive it's 100% finished, but it's darn close.

the bringer of bones. sowing the seeds of the dead. and stuff

I plan to sell it as a 13" x 19" print at the upcoming Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago. Drawl Graphic / Polaire represent.

(p.s. Believe it or not, this is my 100th post. I can't tell if I expected more or less...)
