Marker Sketches

I was drawing some rough sketches with one of my son's crayola markers the other night and this is what I came up with. The marker tips wear out pretty quickly, but they had a pretty nice feel overall. Now I have to go buy new markers for my son. :)

I also started messing around with a new blog header. not sure if it's the direction I want, but I think I'll rotate a few ideas until one of them hits me. :)

Evil Scientist

I'm trying to nail down an evil scientist/doctor character. These are a bunch of concepts. I'm still not certain which direction I'm going to take, short and chubby, tall and lean, glasses or no glasses. I'll figure it out. :)

New Website

In order to learn Flash better I've decided to throw myself head first into redesigning my website entirely in Flash. At times I think it has the same feeling as punching yourself in the face. You can stop at any time to relieve the pain, but you continue to beat yourself silly. However, when a break through occurs it's simply wonderful. "Hey honey look! I made my logo dance!!" wow. :)

Right now it's more or less an under construction page, but it's got a lot of hidden things so go crazy rolling over stuff and clicking. There is however a link to my old site.

At any rate, just click the image below to see the new site.

Toon Portfolio

I've been working as a designer an illustrator and more or less a jack of all trades for about 15 years. My portfolio has always reflected that type of work; heavy design and illustrations to compliment it.

I've recently started on a second portfolio. This one is strictly cartoon. Headshots, character designs, vehicles, props, backgrounds and anything else I can think of. My hope is to some how in one capacity or another venture into the world of cartooning and animation. We'll see. I see a bumpy road ahead, but I think a strong portfolio will help to cushion it a bit.

At any rate, below are a few rough pages from my cartoon portfolio.
