Click play in the video below to watch me illustrate last month’s NH Magazine spot. This one was done entirely in Flash and you can see all the sneaky little ways I cheat. :-) It’s sped up considerably… the video is about 8:40 minutes but the actual illustration took me roughly 3 hours, start to finish. Enjoy!

Video Run Time 3:45 – Here’s another video demo of me drawing, this time the subject is one of my cartoon dog characters. I’ve been scoping out the digital camcorder scene, what a deep pond of water that is. After a bit of research I’ve got my eye on a few models, the Panasonic PV-GS300 in particular. Enjoy the video and if you’ve got a comment or suggestion, I’m all ears! (click here if you can’t see the video below)

I enjoy watching other artists draw stuff so I figured I’d dust off the old video camera post something of my own. There’s no audio… maybe I’ll get brave enough and slap a mic on for the next one… Enjoy! (click here if you can’t see the video below)

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.

I’ve been playing aroung a bit more with creating drawing demos… here’s another video showing how to draw a car in Flash. This one is in swf (Flash) format, if you experience any issues please let me know in the comments area below. Thanks!

I get quite a few emails from people wanting to know what software I use to create my illustrations… most are surprised when I tell them I produce about 95% of my work directly in Flash. Below is a video demo of how I generally create my finished illustration. I start of with a scanned pencil sketch and trace over it in Flash using primarily the “line” and “selection” tools, along with the occasional pencil stroke. Enjoy!
