BoPrints on Etsy Now Open!!!

Howdy all!
So, I recently created a store in Etsy and named it BoPrints. This all came about because I had designed three pieces of bathroom art for my daughter (at the wife's request). I thought, "hey, maybe these things would sell." That led me to an idea to create prints of the alphabet using animals contorted into each letter. I've finished three of the letters and the rest are on the way. Take a look at my site and spread the word if you likes what you sees. =)

I'm Batman!

It's been a little while since my last post. I've been VERY busy in and out of work, but the sketchin' has continued. In honor of the release of "The Dark Knight Rises", I doodled another "playtime" sketch. This little guy is probably not supposed to be swinging from that chandelier, but he lives by his own rules! ;)

I'm really happy with how this turned out. I love playing around with color and light to evoke mood. On to the next one . . .

Imagination, Assemble!!!

I haven't had a chance to see "The Avengers" yet. It's tough for me to get to the movies these days. But, I'm looking forward to seeing it. I really like how Marvel has led up to this massive movie. With all the hype, I was reminded of how much fun it was to play "superheroes" as a kid. For me, it was He-Man, Ninja Turtles or Batman. I'm sure right now there is a group of friends getting together, coming up with a plot and creating their Avengers uniforms: Imagination, Assemble!!!

Color version coming soon . . .

"I have a tail"

"The Swamp" is a shady place. Corruption has overtaken the water, like thick algae. No one is safe. No one can be trusted. Creatures, big and small, work for and against one other in a constant struggle to rule the waterways. In this dangerous land, espionage is a way of life and you have no choice, but to watch your tail.

Sword Swallower

A little character design work here. I have a fun idea for an animated shot using the Malcolm rig (AnimSchool). I can't wait to play around with this awesome, FREE! character. :)

Drew Grit (and Colored it too!)

I had a really, really good time with this one. I didn't want to stop. But alas, I did. I've got other things to work on. =)

Skylar's 2nd Birthday Invite

It was a tough choice, but after whittling the themes down to Toy Story, Rapunzel or Curious George ("Monkey" George in Skylar speak), we chose Monkey George. Here is the invite I designed.

Drew Grit

I recently watched the Coen Bros' solid remake of True Grit. It's a simple story, told well. I especially enjoyed the contrast between the brash, hardened Rooster and the innocent, persistent Mattie. In the end, the lengths to which Rooster goes to save Mattie, certainly connected with me. I guess this post and my previous post have a similar theme. I plan to flesh this one out some more soon.

New Artwork Blog! Time to draw, grow and share.

Ok, so I'm planning to start sharing more of my sketches and such, more often. I'm really hoping to get back into life drawing classes at some point, since that is my favorite form of therapy. I miss it so much.
So, let's start this off with a loving tribute to the little munchkin that has officially made me a heaping pile of gooey mush (my daughter, Skylar). Here's a little something I worked up to reflect that.
