From The Editorial Department

A lot of downtime at the day job this holiday season has had me doodling in ballpoint pen in my notebook an awful lot. I figured since this is supposed to be "sketch" blog after all, I'd share. Here they are along with wishes for a Happy New Year.

You want a montage! Montage! Even Rocky had a montage! Montage!

I don't know about you, but I'm excited.

The Chojun and The Methuselah - Ship Designs

Merry Christmas! This year I got you the designs for the Chojun (top) and Methuselah (bottom, with the Chojun to scale). All these things are brush inked now, but I feel lame re-posting all the characters in brush form. Maybe after the New Year.

Evil Santa in Color

Messing around in Photoshop this morning over coffee, enjoy. If this picture I'm doing of the Three Magi right now doesn't turn out, this may very well end up bring the Christmas card.

Evil Santa? Plus...Christmas Card Reminder!

I was messing around tonight with comps for those Christmas cards and ended up drawing some stuff in straight ink with a bamboo pen and my ancient Raphael 8404, and ended up with the evil looking Santa. So I figured I would share.

Also, I have address info for many of you for the upcoming Christmas cards, but needless to say I'm still missing out on some of you. Drop me an e-mail with your info and prepare for the holiday cheer! Technically, the 12 Days of Christmas don't end until Jan. 6th. I'm just floating that out there.

The Methuselah - Crew Members

In today's installment, we'll see the main crew members of the Methuselah - Issalai, Zef, and Olcee. I thought drawing all the random people working on the ship was overkill

A Lazy Friday Night

Working on a character design for a friend, who is looking for a tattoo of a "sexy ninja chick". Now I guess I just have to find a good pose.

Afghanistan Piece - Final Ink and Color Comps

I'm collaborating with a friend on a political magazine mock-up, and this is the main illustration I'm doing for it. Figured I'd toss some of the comps up before I go to bed.

ASIFA - Fall 2009, Part 3

Through a series of events I've been using a new, cheaper sketchbook for the last few drawing sessions and I'll be damned if any of the gray pencil work in it will show. I also think my scanner is on its last legs, so its problems from both end. Drawings wise, this girl was absolutely gorgeous. I wish I had done more portraits- I like the two here okay but I don't think I really captured her cheekbones at all.
