Dexter Vitruvian

My apologies to DaVinci.
His is perfect... mine is... well intentioned?

We don't get to draw these "old" characters much anymore, but I thought I might do a personal piece involving this little guy. I love Dexter. I really do. And he loves robots as much as I do.

Happy Monday to all...

New Neighbors

This is a happy fun Friday doodle. I see many things to "fix" but I am ok with that. It is a doodle, and it is happy fun. For the heck of it, I have captured my process to share. Happy fun time!

Thanks to everyone who stops by the blog. Have a great weekend!

I Dare You!

Busy morning. Perfect chance to take a few minutes and give these guys some rough color.

Finally Flying Right

This piece has grown up a bit since yesterday's post. I abandoned the line work that screamed "this art should be on a four dollar tee shirt" and went with a pastel treatment. Loose lines. Free flow. I feel better.

Monster Airplane Ride

A quick sketch for this morning. One of my favorite movies on the planet is Monster's Inc, and I loved the relationship between Sully and "Boo." Having a little daughter of my own now (who happens to love Monster's Inc as much as I do) I can appreciate the dynamic even more.

Speaking of my lovely almost two year old daughter, she has developed a habit of sneaking into my office at home and using my computer. I kid you not. She will hop up in my chair, grab my Cintiq pen, and go to town on whatever file I have open at the time. She also likes to open every application I have in my menu bar just to see how much RAM my computer actually has. I think I will post some of her art "adjustments" that she has given me on several of my pieces. Some of her critiques are right on.

Also, I would like to thank everyone for the extremely kind words regarding my "Where The Wild Things Are" piece. The comments left here on the blog and in my email box were very supportive and it means the world to me. I thank everyone from the bottom of my scribbling heart. I am very sad to say however that I was not smart enough to document my process, so no video exists. I have a few more pieces that I would like to do using this method, so I will be sure to record every step and share with you all.

So Close I Can Smell It

Whew... today is the last day I can work on this... and I see the finish line. This morning, lunch time, and after work.... then I ship it off. I can do it! Woooo hooo!

Need To Move Faster

Kind of a boring update this morning.... some clean line on the Wild Things. I will need to CRANK on this tonight and tomorrow morning. It is due by Wednesday morning and I have a long way to go. Wish me luck.

King of the Forest

Slowly but surely, this is coming to life. I will never be able to match the charm of the book... but this has been really fun to do.

A New Week

I am not going to reveal much on this one yet. For some, it will be completely obvious what this is, but for others it may take a while. All I will say, is that I am honored to even be drawing it. I will post my progress as I flesh it out.
