Lacy WIP

Work in progress of a commissioned piece. Sketched, "inked", and now will work on colors and background. Not sure yet on the color scheme, but more than likely the inked line will be more tonal to the overall color way, instead of black lines.... but who knows.

Desert Love (Higher Res)

Here is a higher quality version of my Desert Love animation, for those who are viewing via a computer...

Desert Love

This is my first attempt at making an animation. Always wanted to have my characters move, but really didn't know how to do it. Bought some animation programs and a few books, but I'm a bit impatient..... Also couldn't get the animation programs to get the look and feel I want.... so I sort of did this the "DIY" way.... the animation is raw and the transitions are rough, but I hope that adds to the charm. This is the first of what I hope to be many more.... I'm sure they will get better as I figure things out....

Los Desperados Animation?

I'm hoping to make a short animation. I have never done one and really can't get into reading tutorials on how to make one, so I'm just going to figure things out my own way. It's going to be crude, but that is part of the charm, I hope. Here is the main character with background elements..... there will be a female character as well.... Stay tuned...

Process of Creating "Bandit Girl" Icon

I recently was hired to come up with an album cover text logo for Yonder Music artist Stephanie Fagan. Knowing that they will also want to make merch I decided to also create an "icon", something simple but strong.... The "Emily the Strange" character image came to mind, because it's so identifiable, so I wanted to create something that was simple and had that same kind of "power". Stephanie's album is called "Heart Thief" so an image of a "bandit" came to mind.

Above is a sequence of how the Bandit Girl icon was created. First I looked at photo's of Stephanie on her FB page. I then took out a pad of paper and quickly sketched with simplicity in mind, but that it's no doubt an image of Ms. Fagan. For the geeks, I love sketching with Color-Tex non-photo blue pencils. I just like how they feel. Once I got the image I liked, I then light-boxed it and hand inked it, using Windsor & Newton series 7 brushes. From there I then scanned it and re-traced it in Illustrator, making it a vector file, which now can be sized at any size and retain it's sharpness.

This was a super fun project for me, one in which the execution matched the expectations of my initial vision. That doesn't always happen. The bonus is that the client loved it!
