The Ghoul.

The topic of the Super Awesome Art Challenge this month was Hula Ghoula. I could have made it really silly, but that seemed too obvious for the title.

Not to say this isn't a little silly. I guess it is.

the ghoul.

This took a lot of iteration and a good chunk of time. I did a few drawings I liked, but I just wasn't hitting the right notes at first. It was a little like pulling teeth, but in the end I am pretty dang happy with it.

non-product shots.

I feel like I've been doing a lot of projects that I can't share publicly. At least, not right now. Which is fine and dandy, but it makes for a boring blog.

Most of my time is spent doing product design. Which is done a year in advance, so I never post it here. By the time it hits shelves, I've long since forgot/lost interest.

But, surprisingly, I did get to grab a bunch of product the other day (that both Lindsay and I worked on) and take it home. Well, I actually took it to the new Paper Bicycle studio and filled up some of the empty space.

On a completely unrelated note, I'm going to post a couple pictures of the studio space. If there's some product in there, too, then I guess the can't be helped...

..right?
