Just a color study for an Illo I'm working on.

This is fun.  No, seriously.  I've been doing so much boring digital color that I can't even describe to you the joy of pushing real paint around on a real piece of paper.

So.  Much.  Fun.

These are pretty small by the way.  Just a couple of inches on each side.  I glue them into my sketch book so I don't lose them.

Rusty Rust Rust

Just a study I did today of some rusty metal.  I'm doing an illustration with a big robot in it and I want to get it right.

Eat, Eat

Some more Chinese textbook stuff for work. This story teaches about size relationships (an early math concept.) The text I got started with a kid and a cat. Cat eats and cat grows bigger. Cat eats again and cat grows bigger again. You are now bigger than the dog, etc. The only reason I could think of for the cat to be growing so fast was for the kid to be a mad scientist. Seems logical to me. What, you have a better idea? I don't write these things. I just draw the silly pictures.

Pig Flu Hates Me

So, Tiffany and I got very mucho sick last week.  All week.  We had an unhappy visit from this guy:

I'll spare you the gruesome details but let me say it was unpleasant.
