Cool optical illusion project

I’m working with a client on designing a table-top dispenser for Christian tracts. It’s a neat optical illusion based on this design (click to watch a short video of the illusion in action). It’s really amazing. The head appears to turn and follow you as you walk past it. You can read more about it here.

These photos are of my first rough mock-up. It’s supposed to be a doberman but I’ve got some tweaking to do. Also, I suggested making the tracts in the shape of big dog bones, we’ll see if the client goes for it.

Here’s a quick practice doodle that I used to experiment with painting in Photoshop. Not my best work (the hips and legs are kinda wonky), but that’s life. Sometimes you just have “one of those days”. It was still lots of fun!

Honeymoon

Jennie and I had a terrific honeymoon in Colorado Springs. I managed to keep the location a secret from just about everyone, including Jennie. Jennie had previously lived there for two years, and I had never seen the mountains, so it was an exciting trip for both of us. Among other things we saw the Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, and took a train ride to the top of Pike’s Peak (above the clouds!) We also visited some of Jennie’s old friends and toured the headquarters of Focus on the Family.

Below are a few snapshots from the trip. You can view a lot more of them here:

Goin’ to the Chapel….

Jennie and I are finally back from our wedding/honeymoon. What a fantastic whirlwind experience! It was truly amazing. We’re still waiting for the dust to settle, but we want to say a huge “thank you” to everyone who helped make our wedding so incredible! We are truly blessed to have such wonderful family and friends.

Here’s a few snapshots from the big day, photographed by Cory Docken. Honeymoon pics coming soon.

The Honeymooners


Due to my upcoming wedding and honeymoon, I’m taking a break from blogging until Monday, October 17. I ask my loyal fans (all three of you) to please be patient. Once I return I look forward to posting lots of great new art and info. In the mean time, don’t forget to check out all the terrific blogs and other links listed on the right. Cheers!

The Worst Super Hero Show Ever



This is a riot. I just came across a website describing Legends of the Superheroes, a live action TV show from 1979 that only lasted two episodes. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything so cheezy in my entire life. You know it’s bad when one of the characters is named Ghetto Man.
