Bar in a Boat

Here's another panel from my up-coming book "Seaweed." This is the interior of "the Salty Sugar", (Seaweed's boat). Seaweed had no use for cabins on board so he replaced them with a full bar complete with a trusty bar tender, "Gimlet." As well as an obvious Disneyland tribute there's a small homage to the great Herge from my favorite "Tintin" story.

Horse Studies

I'm starting a t-shirt design that will only be printed in one color. Part of the design involves a horse so I started doing some studies to help get a style and some sense of the proportions I want. Here are some early attempts. I've never liked my horse drawings so I really wanted to get one I felt was unique but still based from the real thing. I looked at photos on "google images" to get some understanding of what a horse looks like. I don't want it to look realistic but I also don't want it to look like my distortions were random chances which so many designs now look like to me. I'll post more attempts as I study more. Neigh.

Shannon & Shane's assignment

Super designers Shannon Tindle & Shane Prigmore were doing a guest lecture at Cal Arts and they asked me if I would participate in the assignment. They asked the class to create Scrooge, Jacob Marley, and Tiny Tim from "A Christmas Carol." Here's my version. This would definately be the worst performance of the story ever! HA!HA!
