Gone to the Dogs


I’ve been hired to take a shot at developing a dog and cat character for a curriculum publisher. Several other artists have already made attempts. The client seems to know what they don’t want but aren’t too sure exactly what they do want. Here’s my first few drawings trying to find the right dog. I don’t think I’ve got it yet, but I’m confident it’s in my pencil somewhere.

“Chair”-iot Race

I’m working on a project designing characters for a Flash-based racing game. There will be five different characters racing through the office in their own customized chairs. Here’s three of the designs so far, though they are still evolving. I’m enjoying trying to push the characters into a more abstract direction, something I want to get better at. (The orange skin and blue/pink hair is at the client’s request.)


Viking Art

These were done recently for a print campaign at a large insurance company. (The screen on the laptop is intentionally left blank for the art director to fill in later).

More barbershop sketches

Last weekend I attended a barbershop singing concert, and brought my sketchbook. Tonight I decided to take a couple of those sketches and try pushing them further.

COW-abunga!


I’m currently working on a project designing a skateboarding cow for a dairy producer. It’s still being refined but this is my favorite sketch so far. It has to be two-color (black and blue). The client thinks the cow looks too old–I can see that–and they don’t like the pose. So back to the drawing board.
