Late Night Creature Feature

Howdy Folks!

Here are a few silly late night drawings. The first was the result of a challenge to draw a self portrait as a gnome. The costume design was inspired by Rufio from the movie "Hook." Not the whole costume, just the shirt-cut-in-half part. The second had to feature a vampire.

P.S. You should really check out Kit Seaton's blog! She recently finished a sketchbook on the theme "Happy Thoughts" and it's been a huge inspiration to me. It's totally off the hook! I promise it will blow your brain box! You gotta pop a lid on it:

The Will and Brett Show

Greetings Folks!

Fall is upon us! Halloween, pumpkins, butternut squash, Sasquatch...

Anyways, as I've mentioned in past posts, at the studio where I work we do weekly creative exercises to keep the creative juices flowing through our brain boxes. We also like to draw caricatures of each other. This tradition was started by my co-workers Will Hardin and Brett Ciacco long before I came into the studio, and the legacy continues daily. No one in the office is safe from the constant caricaturizations, but more often than not, I find myself drawing Will and Brett in response to their silly and skillful drawings of me.

"Moonbeam Blast-off" was a theme during the first weekly exercise. Both Will and Brett are great storytellers, they often regale me with stories of yore. When hearing their banter, it's not hard to imagine them as characters on a sitcom.

This last drawing was for the theme "Chin of Doom." As you can see, the Cosmic Conductor is battling an evil mustachioed robot. I'm sorry to say that, although he sports a mullet endowed with magical powers, things don't end well for the Conductor.

Thanks for taking a look!
