Champs

Recently I was hired to help create some character art for GoNoodle, a fun company that uses videos and games to help kids get more active physically and mentally. They were developing a series of fun monster characters called Champs. Another artist had done some terrific concept work but they asked me to build on it by asking me to imagine what those characters would look like at different ages as they grew up. For some characters/poses they provided preliminary sketches, for others I was able to build from scratch. There were about two dozen characters that needed four illustrations each. I took it to b&w line art, then passed it back to GoNoodle for final coloring.

The full range of finished art should be going public soon, but in the mean time GoNoodle has given me permission to share some of what I did for them. It was a super fun project and they were terrific to work with.

 

Screw Ballz Packaging Art

Recently I was hired by Alex Brands to illustrate the packaging of a new line of toys called Screw Ballz. Basically they are springy foam rubber creatures that can be wound up and combined together into interlocking balls. They asked me to illustrate each animal in an active “springing out” pose. The product hasn’t hit stores yet so I can’t post photos but the client did give me permission to share the artwork I submitted:

Big Wheels

Recently I was hired by Alex Brands to help with the launch of a new line of Big Wheels bikes. They were considering using illustrations for the packaging and asked me to whip up a couple of preliminary concepts of what that might look like (one boy, one girl). Here’s what I submitted (posted with client permission):

 

They’re Here! Mostly Nonsense Starts Shipping Tomorrow

I just got back from the printer with 500 copies of Mostly Nonsense. They look good! I’m really excited to send them out to you!

Orders should start going out in tomorrow’s mail. I’ve got a lot of copies to sign and draw in (for Kickstarter backers who paid for those tiers) but I’ll be flinging them out to you as fast as I can over the next few days. Woo hoo!

If you missed out on the Kickstarter, you can still order copies of the physical book or PDF version in my store.
