Haven’t had much of a life (drawing) lately…

The pandemic put a hold on the life drawing sessions, so I can only draw from photos lately. I haven’t had much time for it with all the…

It’s July, are we still sanitized?

Here are some random spot images I did for a Clorox website a while back. Way before the virus outbreak. Crazy times.

It’s Beano wonderful!

It’s been a pleasure to fill in for David Sutherland, but you can look forward to seeing his work again next week. No one can match his brilliance,…

Smoke ’em if you got ’em… not!

Here’s a board for a “Smoke Free Teens” spot.

Our gang’s all here, like Beano in a pod!

Americans aren’t that familiar with the Beano, so when people ask me what I’m working on, and I tell them the Bash Street Kids, I end up having…

Last Tuesday with Moire!

Here are a couple of political mailer images, obviously about a certain type who wish they could turn back the clock on women’s rights. Those moire patterns are…

The colored past of Beano

No, I mean literally, in color now, and also available on line thru the app!

It’s a long way to Beano really!

OK, that reference to Tipperary is a bit strained, but still. The script asked that the colors on the Victorian outfits should be a bit drab, but I…

It was the Beano of times, it was the worst of times.

I got to do a joke page for this week’s Beano, and it’s also a historical gag. Fatty just had to be the Dom Deluise emperor from History…

Oh! I do like to Beano by the seaside!

This strip had a great title, “Party like it’s 1899”. What a hoot. 

Retro style

Going back to “style” as a concept, here’s an example of what I meant. When designing mascots, you’re really just exploring different styles a character would be done…

Beano looking high and below!

The colors for my Dennis activity page! I made references to some films like Ghostbusters, and one that should be easy to get… find “it”?

Beano rough week so far!

Looks like it’s been a rough week for Smiffy!

Beano looking for Dennis the Meance… the U.K. one!

I got to do a Dennis activity for this week’s Beano, but he’s practically not in it! Here’s a clip.

Moshed Beanos!

Another shot you have to do at some point with the Bash Street Kids is them piling up on each other like a scrum!

How you feeling? Sporting a different style?

People often say that the way they draw is a style, but I don’t agree with that. I think a style is something you choose, and you are…

Switching events around, event renderings anyway.

Some of my commercial work are event renderings, which is basically a drawing to show clients what a show might look like. Usually they’re to launch a product,…

Beano feeling like a wizard!

Here are the colors for that BSK image from earlier. The skull is actually a couple of Easter eggs in one. Since this story has magic in it,…

Mining the resources… of storyboards.

Here is a storyboard for a campaign against oil dependency, which was supposed to be an animated spot that felt a bit like an old School House Rock…

Beano cast into a mythical world!

As in some previous posts, this is another case where the script was a giant thumbnail; something you can see more at the top. It’s helpful because the…
