Sword of Deliverance?

I'm really enjoying @Sketch_Dailies on twitter! It really keeps you on your toes as an artist! I'm in awe of the work I'm seeing there, and astonished at how quickly some of it gets posted, sometimes only a few hours or less after the theme for the day has been revealed! The skill and speed of some of the artists is unbelievable.
 An easy way to see what I mean is to visit the official site: www.sketchdailies.com. This is my interpretation of the theme, "Lady of the Lake". It's an homage to "Deliverance" and "Excalibur", both directed by John Boorman. I tried to give the "Ned Beatty" character an anxious and...uh...vulnerable look.

"Heat Wave"

Trying to update the old blog more frequently and focus on the positive!(something we need more of in this World). The assignment from "Sketch Dailies"(@Sketch_Dailies on twitter) was to draw "Pele" the Goddess of Volcanoes. I decided to do here as a diminutive "character" woman surfing on lava, although it kind of looks like glowing beer. And as usual, I included my intial raw, rough, col-e-rase blue sketch.

"The Artist"

I finally joined "twitter"(and still find it a bit confusing) after learning of a group called "@Sketch_dailies" where various artists create pieces based on a theme that is chosen for a particular day. The best ones are selected to be "re-tweeted" on the site. This piece I did was based on the theme of "Prince". As you can see, I also took a cue from Norman Rockwell.

Greetings!!!

I'm currently attending the "Creative Talent Network" Animation Expo .http://www.ctnanimationexpo.com/ This is the cover I designed for my portfolio, inspired by those vintage "large letter" postcards, which actually seem to be making a come back!

Season 2 Teaser for The Tell-Tale Zone


Get in the "zone"!

UPDATE: The official crowd funding campaign for "The Tell-Tale Zone" has been launched! It was my pleasure to provide  artwork for my co-worker, Marcellus Baron, which he is using to pitch the project, and give you a tease of the "feel" of what the series will be like. If you were directed here from the official site, then you have travelled in the right direction (so far!). If you are one of my followers, or if you came here by chance, then feel free to  check out the site for "The Tell-Tale Zone" crowd funding campaign: http://www.whenyouwish.com/project/the-tell-tale-zone

(A few months ago, I was approached by a co-worker of mine to assist with the creation of a short video to accompany a "crowdfunding" campaign, to generate some money to make a series of films that parody the old "Twilight Zone" series. My job was to do some drawings which he has animated with "Flash", (adding music and sound effects). The campaign should be going "live" shortly. In the meantime, "submitted for your approval" are some of the drawings. I'll provide a link to the crowdfunding site once the campaign officially begins. )
