Making up stuff.


I think its important when making up stuff to not bother trying too hard to be original. Its far more important to be inspired. Any original idea was inspired from something anyway...  it's arguably not terribly original in any case. If you ever draw a blank trying to come up with ideas: look around, go on an adventure and be open-minded. Find something inspiring and do your best to capture what inspires.
I clearly was playing Mario before i drew that turtle....

Leon going snowboarding with a llama.

Leon asked me to draw his caricature... snowboarding and llama themed. I did it digitally for some reason. I decided 'on a chairlift' was the best bet. It allowed me to be clever and put the year in the chair number spot. I also had fun drawing snow lumps on the tree... that you can only see in the full size one.

 

here's the full image:

Narnia

Its loads of fun to draw while watching movies. Personally I will watch for a while and figure out the caricature before i start to draw... it makes it effortless when I put pen to paper.

Llama.

I'm working on something that will have a llama in it... a somewhat odd request, needed to figure out how I would make it work. So i aimlessly drew some llamas today. I like this one hes got attitude.

digital painting in the middle of the night

I couldn't sleep last night, so I started digital painting...
First I drew this simple noseless caricature of myself.

Then I decided to render it... and add a nose. Eventually my tablet driver stopped working so I went to sleep.
 

The next morning I decided to change the lighting and the expression...

moar doodles

This is my dog Molly, most of the time she is completely insane.

crazy eyes.

 
I really like drawing people who are playing music, especially the ones who are singing. their enthusiasm is fun to capture. On the down side, I was drawing this almost entirely in the dark. I need one of those little lights with a clip made for reading in the dark.

 
I really enjoy these super simple doodles, I like using few lines and drawing them just once.

I have these orange post-its on my desk.. cause post-its are useful. sometimes I draw on them.

Floppy Disk

I should get in to the business of selling floppy disk art coasters. 
This one is... uh... blue. Blue with some stuff.
