Bunny ears!

What's with the bunny ears, you ask? It's a little homage to one of my favorite artists, Bill Peet. Below is an image of Baby Zeke from Peet's children's book, "The Pinkish, Purplish, Bluish Egg." Isn't that the cutest eagle-lion-bunny-thingy you've ever seen?

"Scary Shenanigans" Anthology Coming Soon

Lionel Ordaz, a director working with Fawn and me, gathered a handful of storyboard artists and one designer to create an anthology comic. We each did 6-page stories (actually some did less, some did more), as well as concept art revolving around "scary imagery." The artwork was completed and assembled last week and it's now on its way to the printer. We'll have more details on how to purchase this 48-page anthology in November.

This spooky cover was designed by Lionel Ordaz. Contributers to "Scary Shenanigans" are Fawn, Lionel, and I, as well as Stuart Livingston and Todd Oman.

And having nothing to do with our comic...I sketched another dinosaur last night after work. Some day I will have a book with nothing but dinosaurs inside!

Loungin' in Little Tokyo

Fawn and I spent the day in Little Tokyo, eating a variety of "meat on a stick" and sketching. I was pleased with this sketchbook page, mainly because of the hands in the middle. They belonged to an old woman who had joined her two friends at the table next to us. It appeared that they had met at that exact table on many occasions, possibly daily. As the three of them gabbed, the woman with "the hands" pulled out a harmonica and blew fragments of a song from time to time.

The drawings of Fawn at the bottom look really young, now that I see them again. It's amazing how the smallest adjustment of facial features can instantly swing a person's age from 26 to 16.



And this guy wins the "coolest man to sketch" award for the day. I slipped a little color onto him in Photoshop.
