1. A little something for everyone

     
  2. This is a particularly nice print ad I created for Georgetown Music, a cool guitar shop in Seattle.  I did it in trade for a cello!  Now I have to learn how to play a cello!!!

     
  3. Mash-ups are the thing, right?  How about a Penguin of Madagascar/Edgar Rice Burroughs mash-up?  AWESOME!  I know!  Right?

     
  4. An image I created for a Kellogg’s/ London Olympics tie-in.  GO TEAM USA!!!

     
  5. Merida vs. the Demon Bear.

    (Just for the record, I drew Merida here, Sienkiewicz drew the bear.)

     
  6. I haven’t shown anybody what I’ve been working on, (and that’s because it’s TOP SECRET!) but I have been drawing a lot this week.  Those of you who do know what I’ve been doing might be amused by this little diversion.  I think it’s adorable!

     
  7. A commission I did for the National Tow Truck Museum and Hall of Fame.  Tow truck drivers love Mater, so you know!  So I drew Mater hanging out with a couple of historic Tow Trucks.  The one on the left is a Holmes Wrecker.  Seriously, that’s what it’s called.  Holmes Wrecker.  Turns out the first tow truck was made in 1916 by a guy named Ernest Holmes in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  For real.  Holmes Wrecker.  I can’t get over it.

     
  8. Character designs for the I’ve Got a Goat video that Kevin Hyatt, Gino Scarpino and I worked on for the Seattle kindie-rock band “The Not-It’s” 

     
  9. As long as I’m posting animation-related work, I’d like to show some of the work I did for the Not-It’s “I’ve Got A Goat” video.  I posted a link to the video in a previous post, and I hope you do watch it because it’s a very catchy kindie-rock tune and I’m proud of the work Gino, Kevin and I did on it.  I thought I’d share some of my production art on that video.  Here are a couple of the backgrounds I made for it.  I really tried to keep it clean and simple, and to give the animator (Kevin) and broad and easy to navigate an environment as I could.

    Fact is, this backyard setting is based on my sister-in-law’s back yard.  Yes, my sister-in-law has a bathtub outside next to a big blue garage/barn building.  No she does not have a goat.  She has chickens.
