Tourist Town

This is one of the times of year they flock to the city to see the christmas lights and fill our hearts and minds with images of violence. But really, if you are going to walk slow don't walk down the middle of the sidewalk...some of us are busy pretending we have places to go.

Playing around

This summer has been mostly work and little play. I have managed to get to the city pool to swim, but nothing truly naturey. I miss the lakes and watering holes from years past. I think we will get away for two days, but next summer I plan to shove off for a week. On the bright side I have big things in the works. Usually summer seems to be the time that most folks aren't around to do business my experience is mostly with publishers that seem to run away from June-Sep. Lucky for me I am not dealing with publishers. I have been talking with Trader Joes about licensing and as soon as that goes through I will discuss it. Also reaching out to Target and Whole Foods. All of these things might fall through, but it keeps my mind busy in the mean time. Also, updating the website constantly! yay

Octopus playground

Fun times! Just playing. I am thinking of doing a few more but unsure what to do. Anyway, more doodles for no reason to come!

Riding the Dragon

A new lil illustration. This is not specifically for anything I just had this vision of kids riding a dragon like it were a school bus. I thought about giving it more "bus attributes" but then looked at traditional chinese dragons and got carried away. One thing I wish I had done was but high tops on the dragons back feet...but once again got carried away with the traditional dragon details. I worked on making the dragon more inviting with aviator goggles and a scarf I associate with flying. I also thought of making it have the actual number of kids that would be in a bus, but it turns out that number is close to 75, which is insane.
I might do a couple of images of kids playing on playgrounds, but on huge weird animals. I like how imaginative kids are about their surroundings and that a school bus could be a dragon or a playground could be an octopus perhaps? Anyway, its just some fun stuff while I wait for big projects or for large companies to get back to me about greeting cards...perhaps. There will be more on this as the story develops.

Otherwise, the website looks good. Still a bit slow so I'm trying to make some of the images smaller. Bare with me if you feel frustrated. I am reading through the forums.

Best Friends Forever

Trying a new illustration contest to help get some illustrations in that are not for a specific project. This is for Ghost Shrimp but really anything will do. I was sad when The Blown Cover stopped as it was one of the only ways to get the attention of the people at the New Yorker. I am sure there are ways to get email addresses and such, but this seemed like the least intrusive way. Funny enough the New Yorker cover for Gay Pride was a blown cover winners submission.

The theme for this is: Best Friends Forever.
