Not sure if I'll have time to participate in this weeks Illustration Friday topic "monster". But here's a sketch of someone far from being a monster. Her name is "Patches". Yes, she looks just like Lassie...and she's just as bright as the famous dog-star. One of the friendliest pups I've ever met. I'm hoping to do a series of "Patches" in the next couple of weeks. Sort of a request from one of my colleagues at work...how could I say no?

Here's that mystery sketch that I mentioned in last week's post. It was successfully delivered to my younger cousin as a belated birthday gift. It's a sketch of her 2 favorite goldfishes...actually her 2 only goldfishes.

Here's a snap shot of it framed before I wrapped it up for delivery.

A special birthday sketch for a special someone...sorry, can't post just yet. Gotta wait til' Fed-Ex completes delivery. For now, I better work on some "feet" sketches for this weeks Illustration Friday.

Experimenting with shapes, lines and curves during my late lunch break. It was close to the end of the day at work so I figured no one would mind if I doodled on the newspaper.

Stopped by Japan Town to pick up some brush pens and a new water brush...Grabbed some lunch and headed to the bookstore.

I browsed through a couple of magazines and books for inspiration but ended up finding inpiration from this bully of a brother. He demanded his younger sister to hand over the laptop and to "get the stepp'in".

"To-go" box after dinner at BJ's Restaraunt. Great service and food selection...but the wait is ridiculous (similar to Cheescake Factory or Elephant Bar). We reserved a table for 7 with a wait time of 65-75 minutes. WOW! Might as well drive across the street and check out the Nike, Adidas, and Puma stores....so we did.

Thanks Paintmonster!

Just arrived in the mail today...from the ever so kind and talented Marty aka: Paintmonster. I love how his packaging envelopes are personalized with his very own character.

If you have the time, check out his website with numerous links, forums, and wonderful galleries. Or go straight to his online store to purchase your very own 2006 Paintmonster calendar, sketchbook, and framed artwork.

Came across a blog named "Retro Robot Boy" the other day and was truly inspired to draw a couple of robots during lunch. Our company has tons of gadgets and mechanical parts to draw from. Not to mention the gobs of reference material in the library.

So what the heck is its' purpose? Not yet sure...I just like robots...but if I had to choose, I could probably picture this particular robot to be used for observing and capturing data in various terrrains (I lost count of how many seperate parts I was looking at?) Maybe something for NASA's next trip to Mars...great IMAX documentary by the way! The surround sounds was nice & LOUD and the 3D graphics blend in very well with the live footage.

The World-Wide Sketchcrawl has been around for over a year and now it has its' very own BLOG. (Started by Pixar story artist, Enrico Casarosa , creator of the comic titles: MIA and Haiku 5-7-5) .

It's a great inspirational place with excellent photos and random sketches posted by contributors from all parts of the world. Artist like Paintmonster (Japan) and Ronnie de Carmen (US) are just a few.

I'm very excited to have the opportunity to share a couple of my sketches from my recent Tahoe trip...Hey, that trolly looks familiar?!
