I draw a lot of cups and cats in my sketchbook. Here's another cup from a watercolor demo.

Also, if you don't already, you may like the Paper Bicycle blog. The folks from work (myself included) share cool stuff over there.

Gray day

(I did not realize, until this moment, that "gray" and "grey" can be used interchangeably. I thought I just never knew how to spell that color.)
Life drawing, some of my characters, one One Piece thing, and the dudes at the top are that Inception guy. Not Leo. One of the other ones.

Painter painting

I started this one in Adobe Photoshop CS 5, actually. There are simulated brushes in that program and I think I kind of like'm. Then I brought it into Painter to see how I'd feel about that. Time to start using new brushes.

Some Wrinkle in Time stuff up there, on the right. Had to get in Meg and Calvin.
Also, if that coffee cup (though it's actually tea) looks familiar, it should be. I used that sketch to make the watercolor painting at few posts ago.

last of AK

Just the remaining sketches from Alaska. Hence the mountains. There are beautiful mountains all over up there.
At some point I found out through my friend who was taking care of the cats that they had gotten into a bag of rice and were pushing it around. Bad cats. So that is what's happening in the drawing in the upper left.

Last week I had the chance to do some small watercolor paintings for a demo in my friend's class (which was awesome, by the by. A great class with some great students) and it was a lot of fun! I often forget how much I love that medium.


Yes, another of my cat. She's a lot of fun to depict; she's just a shape with some colors on her.
These are painted on 160 lb Fabriano cold press. With some paint and some water and stuff.

working winter

Presently I'm making an image for my grandma's Christmas card. Funnily enough, she requested I use the character from my Animation 1 final. Sometimes I like to pretend old pieces didn't happen, but it's nice when you can break things apart and reuse them.

once more, with color

These are from AK too. I did some digital sketching, though the OP one on the top had a pre-Alaska real sketch framework.
I heard some of The Hobbit on audiobook while there. It's an appropriate thing to listen to while in Alaska. So many mountains.
