Rubber (Stitched) Duckies

A couple months ago I was fortunate enough to draw and design a series of rubber ducks at work. I first created a "template" to keep the size and angles of each design the same and then began drawing up ideas for the individual ducks. This was fun to brain storm with my creative directors and I'm really glad this project was a team effort. To me, it's always nice to have a second or third person look at my art before I take it to a finish. They spot things that you sometimes miss (proportion issue, an object looks like something that you didn't intend it too, etc.) There were 20 ducks in the series with my favorite being the punk duck.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sketchbook Caricatures

This first drawing makes me happy. :)
It's a caricature of my friends Dan, Natalie and Marko. I had a really good time seeing them and my friends in San Diego last month. I draw my friends sometimes for the sake of a memory exercise and it also puts me in a good mood. I liked how the stylization turned out so I decided to put it to the test on some celebrities. The next drawing is a caricature of the band Green Day. If I would do this again, I'd work on the likeness and expression a bit more. Otherwise I had fun playing with the shapes and simplifying.

thanks for stopping by :)

Zombie Pinup

I've been having a lot of fun with Adobe Illustrator, lately. This is the colored version to the pencil sketch I posted last month.



As an artist, it's good to keep your feet on the ground and know that there's always room for improvement. Today was a good reminder of that.

What a lovely day for a slice of humble pie :)
