Do you Doodle?

My wife bough me this great book called Do You Doodle by Nikalas Catlow. Each page has a different doodle for you to complete. They're great excersises for when you need to draw but are having artist's block. This is the first page from my book. I think you can tell what I drew and what Nikalas drew.

Another Kitchen Revision

OK, here's another revision to my kitchen layout for ACME animation. Boy this blog is all over the place lately. These revisions are my attempt at showing more story in the layout. I hope you all like it.

Illustration Friday: Baby topic

OK, I know this illustration is nothing spectacular, just a quick sketch of a baby bunny. But this is my first step in attempting to get back in the habit of drawing regularly outside of work and posting more often. So I'm going to try and do the illustration friday challenges every week. This weeks topic is baby.

Hey Everyone,
I'm sure I tried to recruit almost everyone who reads this blog at some point to help complete this mural for our good friends Nick and Amber and of course their baby Gwen. Well here are the results. We did get some help from both Nick and Amber's parents and one of their friends whose name I can't remember. But the majority was painted by me and Nick, and my lovely wife Cristina. Amber really wanted to paint, but she was pregnant with Gwen at the time (but I think she did some secret painting anyway when we weren't around). The whole project took a long time. I sketched all the artwork onto their walls freehand since we had no opaque projector, then I numbered the colors so everyone who wanted to could help us by doing paint by numbers. Then I went over most of it again to add some details. We finished it a week before Gwen showed up.
All these pics were taken by my beautiful wife by the way.

Artwork for the CG Challenge

I can't believe we're in the middle of May and I haven't posted since January.
Well hopefully everyone will enjoy this one. I did this for the latest CG challenge posted over here which is supposedly "inspired by "Uplift War", a book by David Brin", though the only real requirements were that the entrants show human and alien interaction and use digital media. The winners of the challenge haven't been picked yet, so wish me luck.

Merry (belated) Christmas!

Merry Christmas Everyone! We got our card out a little late this year, since our puppy Bailey ate the first batch that was delivered to the house. Cristina wanted a Peanuts themed card this year, so I obliged. The final version of the card (which must be on the other computer because I can't find it) said Merry Christmas in the upper left corner, and had the scriptural quote from the book of Luke about Christ's birth which Linus presents in "A Charlie Brown Christmas" on the backside.
My apologies to anyone who didn't recieve a card this year, hopefully next year our pups apetite for paper will have subsided.

Kitchen Layout

Hello Again! This is a kitchen scene I did for the online animation tutoring site It's a really great site where you can download tutorials and worksheets and submit work to be reviewed by professionals. And I believe it's also free to students, and only a slim hundred dollars annual for us non students.
