I dug a trench along side the house today.
Like hell I’m in shape! Gotta do some serious healing yoga before I hit the bed, or I’ll never get up tomorrow.
Anyway, some new artz! what I’ve been doing lately, aside from dreaming of foley-ing or being a music video director.
Watermelon Spitters was a concept done by request; friend Dan was releasing an EP and requested an album cover. It was a weird, fun illustration– the kitschy hand prints were supposed to echo watermelon juice, and I just sorta went with whatever the pencil wanted to do.
This was based on a photograph taken on the fourth of July a year and a half ago; we were on the Oregon coast, with the fog shrouding the beach, and all the pictures turned out really well because of how reflective the air was. It was a fun time, we had a dangerously front-row seat for the fireworks show…
… and Mr. T-Rex goes to the zoo was just a whimsy thing of everything I like: zoos, balloons, ice cream, t-rexs, and… texture. Listened to a lot of The Apprentice while I was drawing this one, and the quality of the show almost raises itself if you don’t watch it. Start to notice more soundtrack action, dramatic gongs, and audio cuts.
Send me some inspiration!
