Line sketches

I've recently been inspired to do some line drawings. I needed more practice drawing the human figure and faces. Luckily I subscribe to ESPN magazine so there's a lot of good athletic photos in there. Hopefully you can tell but the guy on the left is Adrian Peterson.

After that I tried drawing some vehicles. I started out with the Vespa. I wanted to draw a Pagani Zonda but that didn't turn out as successful.

The pose for Bubble Mouse was inspired from me being completely over drawing this circular character but my animation teacher making it mandatory to draw him.

And this is Rummage! My most successful character design! I'll try to draw him in different poses and bring him to life! He was inspired by our lamb child, Woolie, who is so adorable!

yeah, he's super cute. and he knows it.

More Doodles!

Here's a hungry monster that my mom tried to throw away. Haha.

This little guy is freezing!!

haha and This little guy needs to learn how to swim.

Holiday Card

I know it's a little early, but hey, they already have Christmas decorations on the shelves at Target. My friend Amanda asked me to make a non-religious holiday card for her company a couple of years ago. Here's what I came up with!

More Than Just Circles

Since Bubble Mouse, I've progressed in my character design and have incorporated shapes other than circles.

(My favorite) A cute ox. I really need to finalize all these drawings.

Angry bull.

A superhero rooster.

An alien. and now that I look at it, it loos like the alien from the Pixar short lifted. This predates that. Great minds think alike

And an alien looking giraffe. I think I drew it because my cousin Tiffany liked giraffes and i was maybe going to draw her something for her wedding.

Bubble Mouse

A while back I took an animation class. I met a lot of great people and learned the most from them. (Thank you Jessica and Eddie!) Here's a characterI created. I didn't name him because I began despising him. And compared to the rest of the class, I was quite the amatuer and would joke about how I couldn't create a character so I made one with circles.

With our character, we put them in poses and shaded them.

Here's Bubble Mouse doing the crane kick.

Here he is over-stuffed with cheeeeese.

Can you tell I was trying to do the most ridiculous poses for a round cute mouse. I need to shade this sometime.

And yes, he's riding a Triumph.


Yippie!! Classes started back up yesterday! I'm taking Drawing & Composition and Intro. To Product Design. I'm going to try to get away with making everything toy related so I can build up my resume. Here are some doodles I made. The first one is from class (while we were on break of course...no. I need to stop lying to myself. Again, I learn better when I'm drawing.)

The rest of these were just for fun. As you can see, I like cute things.

Happy Cute Owl. Would be a great stuffed animal...I think i'll have to make it

An elephant that was inspired by something but I don't remember.

Platypus. I drew this right after the elephant. With the 2 drawings I wanted the outlines to be very distinct and prominent.

A crazy bird.

Good Mistake

My friend Amanda got married this past weekend and it was such a beautiful wedding. You can tell that they have affected so many people and that they are loved by many.

I painted/drew her wedding present. Originally it started as a painting on 3 skateboards. The painting was a couple running away from a carnival. The people were going to be painted and their clothes would be cut out in cloth. After I was done with it, I felt that the people were too cute and couldn't imagine anyone hanging it in there house.

I sanded it and drew a cornet on it with a sharpie and then glazed it. Why a cornet? Well because like a couple of months before the wedding I randomly asked her if she ever played an instrument and she said that she played a cornet for like 5 minutes. I didn't know what to draw on top of the sanded skateboard so the cornet just kind of came to me.

Here are the progress pics!

MOCA Visit

Last night I went with a class to MOCA (The Museum Of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles). It was awesome! Our class already ended but we love each other so much that we want to have more field trips like this one!

Here are some of my favorite pieces there.

Robert Rauschenberg - Kickback, 1959.
This is probably my favorite piece there.

Robert Rauschenberg - Interview, 1955.
Ok, I love this one too!

Andy Warhol - Telephone, 1961.

Mark Rothko - Orange and Yellow, 1949.

I forgot to find out who the artists is for this. Gives me good reason to go back and find out!

Such good pieces at MOCA! Everything is so much better when you see it in person, you guys should go visit it!

It's Alive!! It's Alive!!

...more like I'm alive. I haven't posted in a while.

Here's a pic I doodled in my class this past semester. Don't worry, it was an art class!

I don't pay attention enough. I understand better that way? Yep, that's it.

Voodoo Gingerbread Man Doll

Sometimes I look at my work and wonder where I came up with some of this stuff. You probably question this thought because I don't have much stuff posted. But, I'll post more...and then you'll understand.

Coldplay's Strawberry Swing

Loving Coldplay's new video made by Shynola! I've seen this type of animation done before, but they really took it to another level with angles and perspectives!
