Face to Face…

Thought I’d put a little twist on the old “before and after” routine. This guy was part of an article illustration I just finished up, and I DO mean just. There’s gotta’ be a caption for this scene somewhere… Anyone?

Old Man Goat… Hide the Kids…

Goats seem to be the “old men” of the animal world. Whenever I see a goat – illustrated or otherwise – I always think if they could talk they’d sound exactly like a grumpy, 92 year old man who hates kids and voted for Ronald Reagan. Or is this just me? … *looks around*

Watch Me Draw Hitler…

Although like every other intelligent person on the planet I despise everything Adolf Hitler ever stood for. Subject aside, I think it turned out to be a nice caricature. Since it was such a simple design I thought I’d record the process of finalizing the art. Enjoy the process, not the subject…. Cheers.

Mouse and Cheese…

Here’s a little cartoon mouse character I’m working on for a client… part of his new logo design. I’ll be posting the final in my logo design folio on the new site that’s in the works. Hopefully I’ll have it launched by the end of the month… Hopefully.

Coyote Character – Before & After…

Here’s a little before and after of a cartoon coyote character from a recent Flash animation project. I like how sly the character’s expression turned out in the final… In the animation his eyebrows go up and down quickly so it really adds to his attitude… I should have his tongue licking his chops with a few chicken feathers floating around in the background. :)

Winter’s Coming…

They say the first one’s always the toughest. I wish I was as eager as this dude is for the coming snowfall up here in Maine. Maybe I should take his approach this winter and become a snow removal warrior, dedicated to conquering all snow that gets in our way. Hey, it’s long season up here.
