Erin drew me a magic dragon during lunch today.
And he has three legs.

Illustration Friday: "Small"

"I feel small."

Here's a more finished version of the Thanksgiving piece. Most of the work was on the donkey, a little on the back ground and cleaning up some shadows. And I took the color the littlest bit closer to a red-violet.

The Blue Goblet Font

Hey people, Blue Goblet font is out and, check this one out; you can now write like me.

What's that? You've always been envious of the silky way the indigo filled Windsor-Newton so effortlessly glides across the rich and creamy sheet of Strathmore 500 Bristol forming numbers and letters of sweet joy? Do not weep, or rather, weep no more my ones.

Look no further than and thank your lucky DooleyType stars.

[And so I took a picture of my screen and drew a red arrow to guide you....]

Here's the direct link, the above is just to the actual site. Go for it.

You've also got to try the this thing and take the font for a test drive:

I like the "Alternate One" kind.

An older drawing I found packed away under things.

Still makes me laugh. Man I love Star Wars.

Illustration Friday: "Strength"

Strength. Courage. Fortitude. Tenacity. Endurance. Or whatever.

what I found on my desk the other morning

And the worst part is I didn't even now I had those estates.

Illustration Friday: "Night"


(finished drawing)

This is something I did for a client to bolster my portfolio several months ago. They asked for one more image of something to seal the deal on this book.

I had done a very rough version a few months before, just for fun, however, this needed to be good. Loaded with Dr. Pepper and Indiana Jones playing, I worked that night and went from start to finish. Bed time was around 3 or 4 AM. Up at 6.

I was wiped out the next day but it was fun. Ah, my job :)

Wednesday Highlights

Tweaked some of the Oxford roughs and revised two or three this morning and surprised Erin for a late breakfast. This afternoon's highlight is this gator fellow.

Its been a while since I've worked in Photoshop this way. More like watercolor, painting transparently onto of the lines rather than this which is more like oils.

Another Wednesday Highlight is this mornings iTunes purchase.
