Feeling kind of blocked. Hhmmm. Do these colours work? Or maybe its the blueish hamburger he's about to eat. Maybe thats clashin. i dont know.

Maybe I could get some feedback, recently Ive just been unmotivated to work on this character and I dont know why? But open to any suggestions. Im thinkin another pose or too..or maybe more added to the body? Maybe an environment?


Jay and Cherry

Two characters I created a while back. The lady didn't have a name at first. I was at Wendys for lunch with a friend and the woman who took my order was named "Cherry Jackson" I thought this was perfect. It says SLAM EVIL! in the background. Maybe one day I'll get around to doing a the one shot.

Bad 2 Tha BONE!!!

Was watchin' Wolverine wreck shop while "X2" was runnin' on my DvD player last night and did this one up for fun. Of course hes doesnt favor the classiness of Hugh Jackman but rather how Wolverine should look .... F**KED UP!!! >:D Contemplated adding more grisly features outside the bone claws,etc but I was jus messin round. Nothing final so no point in going too nuts just yet.

some stuff

These first 2 are Three 6 Mafia character designs for Sony BMG. The project is dead though. I was going to do a comicbook to go with their new album but they changed the direction and concept. Oh well. I got paid anyway! Hurray for kill fees!!! that last piece is just a cool 70's cat I did for shits n giggles. Sorry I haven't posted more but most of the stuff I've been doing lately can't be shown til it hits the stands. I'll post it when I can. Peace.

Unused Toy design

Awhile back I did some pre-Toy designs for the N.O.Hornets that went no where fast. I did a few different versions of Chris Paul. One with his gear and one with just tights and a wife beater on that would go under the outfits since they wante dto do real cloth for the uniforms. Wish this would have gone forward. They decided to play it safe and do some booble heads instead.

Hey all,
Just a quick Frozone piece that I whipped up while taking a break from work.
Here's a revised version based on Magoo's excellent advice:I wish that I'd saved the original PSD, so I wouldn't have to paint on top of the previous version. It still feels very 'grayed out' to me.

There goes the Neighbourhood...

Hey all,

I just wanted to introduce myself. I am the newest member of the Sketchbook AllStars. I wanted to thank Mr. Magoo for inviting me to join this badass collective of sketchbook madmen. I hail from sunny (for 2.5 months out of the year) Toronto, in the frozen badlands of Canada. I have been working as a storyboard artist since 2006. If you want the whole story, check out my fortress of solitude blog. But enough introductions, let's get it started, with some recent work.

Something Old Something Kinda New

Been a while since I posted but I'll save the excuses and get down to it. Finally getting around to coloring this TMNT pinup series I did a long time ago. More to come later but for now I leave you with Ralph flippin the bird in his own lil' sneaky way.

Peace and Luv,

Lunch time sketch

Today I sat with some co workers of mine and did a little drawing. Laurie is on the left and thats Dawud brooding on the right. It was a deep conversation.

Late night drawing...

I did this last night at a late night drawing session I found in downtown Los Angeles. My mentor instructed me to draw with pen instead of pencil so I could learn to trust my judgement. This work was done on two sheets of 18 x 24 taped together.

I now understand this whole concept of not having time to post because of thing called work/job. So, just to show I'm still alive, here are two recent sketches. Nothing fancy, I'm afraid.

This was the only thing I drew in April, I think. :(

Hoping to remedy the drawing drought, I purchased a new sketchbook (picture above) for my upcoming trip to NY and Canada. I'm leaving tomorrow, actually. See you guys when I get back, hopefully with more sketches.
