WIP - Ghost Town

Here are a few sketches from a game concept I'm working on. It's a westerny, ghosty type story. Here are the main characters, a boy deputy and his trusty old horse, Trooper.

Hi-Ho Silver!

I loved going to the playground and riding those stationary horses with the big spring. I would rock back and forth so hard I would actually buck myself off half the time. I felt so much like the Lone Ranger, of course he probably didn't get thrown from his horse as often as I did.

Bigfoot & Birdy

I spent about an hour today just staring at Carter Goodrich's illustrations and still have trouble wrapping my head around how amazing his character designs are and his use of watercolor. I was playing around with some Prismacolor nu pastels today, just experimenting. Plus its always fun to draw Bigfoot. I'm going to try and  work traditionally more and more and only use photoshop for minor adjustments.

What have you got behind your back?

I could never keep something a secret from my mom as a kid, especially if that secret was a living thing I was keeping in my room.

He's a lumberjack and that's okay

I'm not sure why I drew a lumberjack, I started with a guy who had a great beard and this is what I ended up with.

Slow danger

An idea from my buddy Aj, I give you, Slow Danger. I think I'm going to do a series of these because it was so fun thinking of the different kinds of slow danger.

A painting of one of my all time favorite Scooby-Doo villains, Jaguaro. Body of a gorilla and the head of a jaguar, so ridiculous he's scary...ish.

Bad directions

Whenever you ask an alien for directions you're bound to get a couple of different answers.

Jon Klassen!!!

The Sunday before last was the reception of the "I see what you say" exhibit at the Cartoon Art Museum. I got the chance to meet artists Jon Klassen, Lemony Snicket, Roman Muradov, Christian Robinson and several other great artists. Not to play favorites but Jon Klassen is one of my personal favorite artists, not just in that group of great talent but of all illustrators. If you haven't seen anything he's done or read one of his books, go now and buy, borrow or go to a book store and read it there. He's an unbelievable artist and an even nicer guy in person, very warm, pleasant and open about his work and process. I went with fellow artist Ciaee Ching, another great talent and we met him together. He was nice enough to pose for a couple pictures with us.

Here are photos of Ciaee, Jon and myself and a few from the show itself. Hopefully I won't get sued or anything for sharing with you.

Duck vs. Fish

HEY LOOK! An actual painting painting! With gouache and stuff.

I haven't painted with gouache in quite some time and basically just did a quick sketch with it tonight. I didn't really plan out the drawing, this is just what fell out of my head. I do like the concept though, perhaps I will put these two into more scenarios together.

Washing machine bathtub

I always wanted to try this as a kid but was never allowed. Apparently it was dangerous or impractical or something.
