kids these days...

This another attempt (see previous) at drawing someone in motion, since I rarely draw anything that's not completely inert.

skate that board, you youthful hooligan!

I don't really like how it looks this small, though, so here's a bigger version: link!

Like always, I'll probably revisit it at some point in the magical future.

LBP Contest

News Flash! I love videogames and I am a staunch supporter of all things videogame related.

I especially love games with amazing art design, like Shadow of the Colossus, Okami, Viva Pinata and most recently Little Big Planet, developed by Media Molecule.

LBP's mascot is SackBoy, who dresses up in tons of different outfits. Media Molecule are having a costume design contest.

I decided to enter. Here it is!

retro in more ways than one.

I was looking for some files on my computer today and found this...

win the game!

It's an except from a set of greeting cards I did a while back. You could've picked them up at your local Target... if I would have remembered to tell you about them when they came out.

But now they're long gone, sorry.

Maybe I'll dig the samples out of the closet and shoot pictures of them all or something. They had a little "get the ball in the hole" game built into each card. And they were pretty fun.

Five Alive.

I got a package in the mail today. It was 5 certificates from the Society of Illustrators L.A. It was a surprise to me.

I don't remember entering, but I guess I did. Five times. Go figure.

Whatever, I'll take what I can get. So party on! I made these strange blue dudes to celebrate...

this is a strange way to celebrate.

PS - I realize there are six dudes in total. I am only counting the little guys to represent the five.
