Hey Everybody!

I’ve been super busy lately putting together my new artbook which will debut and be for sale at CTN Expo next month. Just about everything’s done, but tonight I’m working on some small tweaks on the cover image which I have been spending extra time on to get just right. While I’ll upload the whole thing tomorrow night, here’s a small snippet of a teaser of that cover image.

Cheers!

Day three’s doodle is the result of my being in the midst of reading Doris Kearn Goodwin’s Bully Pulpit. Teddy Roosevelt and Taft are just so much more interesting than I had initially imagined their intertwining stories to be…and thusly it has influenced my time spent scratching out doodles. I debated calling this Foxy Roosevelt…but being foxy is probably something Mr. Roosevelt was not. In any regard, I wanted to draw a distinguished mustachioed fox, wearing a suit and smoking a pipe…..though to be honest now that I think about it, Teddy Roosevelt didn’t smoke….so…..dammit. Well then pay my attempt at a brief history lesson no mind…this doodle has no historical significance whatsoever….it is however, classy. Partly.

Day Two: Joey “The Fish” ….The Bird
Day Two has brought upon the desire in me to portray the most angry, aggressive, and possible baseball-bat-wielding bird ever seen in the jungles of Queens. He’s only been seen once, outside a McDonalds, screeching melodically, as if to voice the warning that, “They F*** you at the drivethru.”

(Pesci means fish.)

Day One: Accidental Miley
So I’ve been drawing up a storm lately. I’ve been trying to find my mojo via attempting to produce an achievable and fun project. In the midst of exploring a ton of character ideas, I drew this. YES. It turns out that I accidentally drew a certain rambunctious immature pop star. Now those that know me, know that Pop is my mortal enemy, and still…I don’t hate this. Meh, anyway I hope to increase my posted scanned drawing content by posting at least a doodle a day. And this is Day One’s doodle.

This past November at Blizzcon 2013 I once again took part in the Artist Stage event. This time I contributed by first at home creating new character designs for The Lost Vikings, which I have aptly titled “The Lozt Vikings.” Then, on stage I created a drawing of these characters that could be auctioned off to the highest bidder for charity. Now that the holidays are over, I’ve taken the time to complete a color version of that drawing.

Cats and Dogs - Felicia and Talbain

So this is yet another quick and dirty painting I did between working on other projects this weekend. It’s based on a rough sketch I did for a friend a few weeks ago. I’ve titled this one very sensibly “Cats and Dogs.”

Obviously, Felicia and Talbain are two of my favorite characters from Vampire Hunters/Darkstalkers. I’ve never done any fan art of them and I figured it’s about time I drop some more Capcom love.
