octopus t-shirt

I've been toying with the notion of printing up some t-shirts to sell online. This would possibly be one of the designs. Because everybody and their grandma would love to own a t-shirt with a octopus who has fire for brains.

Painter Oil Cloner

Cheating again. This was a spot I did years ago. I just opened it in Painter and used the Oil Cloner brush to make it all brushy, just for cheap, lazy fun. Hey, it's 90 degrees, cut me some slack. Below it is the original.

Mr. Wiggle

Meet Mr. Wiggle. He's happy to meet you, so happy. He's also happy about his arms. And about finally finding a shirt that fits after years of searching. He's also just happy about life in general. He's just that kind of guy. Rock on, Mr. Wiggle!

more vet

Here's the same sketch with the black pencil added..

...and with the blue line dropped out in photoshop.
(The easiest way to do that is to convert it to CMYK, select the yellow channel, then convert it to greyscale.)

Vet's office

This is a rough for a self-promo postcard. I always sketch in blue pencil first, then black pencil overtop a little tighter. After I scan the sketch, I drop out the blue in Photoshop.

Too busy playing dad and catchup on work lost during my eternal sick spell. Here's something I actually sketched for work. Let's hope it doesn't happen again.

I'm kinda into these huge fat black lines right now. I'll get back to the more colorful stuff tomorrow. This is me facing the piles of work that waited for me while I was sick.

By the way, if your doc ever gives you Ciproflaxin for something minor, ask for a less powerful antibiotic. That stuff messsed me up worse than the original illness.

Yes, I'm out sick again. Nothing like being ill during a heat wave.
See you kids next week.

kitty mit milkshake

Got really bored with the snake in the rocket.
It's being pre-empted by a kitty with a soft milkshake addiction.
