BAM all up in ya' face...

life's been busy and then a little extra busy. but good. right now i'm working on a mascot redesign for my hometown high school. the miller man has been around in his current incarnation since 1985-ish. he's been photocopied, abused, crumpled up and generally smacked around with a dirty xerox machine. in fact, you can view him HERE.

i decided to take the opportunity to give him a facelift, for personal pride if nothing else. the yukon board of education is surprisingly elusive. like the wildebeast, they graze here and there - always fleet of foot as they dash away from emails and phone calls regarding the beloved high school mascot.

will he ever see the light of day once i finish him? i'm not sure. i'll present him to the school board and see where it goes from there. but here's a snapshot of my halfway point. lots left to do, but i'm pleased with the progress thus far. more later.


the school board is finally going to meet with me next week, so we'll see how our hero fares. here's a snapshot the version to be presented. If it's approved - it'll get fixed up and tweaked!

ohiki your face off…

… will i ever get around to completing my story?! my epic samurai chicken rock opera? are a goat sensei, a panda monk and a crafty duck artisan really worth posting?!

i hope so.

i know i've been bad about updates, being busy is no excuse; however, i was busy. so there. here's a page outta my dine n' draw from a couple weeks back. i put everyone to work designing characters you might see in the world of ohiki. i did a couple pages of toons, everyone had some really great ideas and i look forward to seeing where it takes me. sometimes it's good to hang out with a bunch of illustrators.

b. frank in da' house!

...there’s a reason franklin’s cherubic face adorns the one-hundred dollar bill. no one can deny that washington, lincoln or jefferson made some serious contributions to america. however, ben owns the top spot.

whenever ben was presented with a problem, he solved it by inventing a unique and often unheard of solution. which makes him pretty much awesome enough for anyone to love.

eli in autumn...

...even though this doesn't look anything like denzel, i'm always workin' on improving my digital skills. i refuse to accept the idea that i HAVE to use painter to achieve a watercolor effect. and by god, one day i will get this how i want it.
