Hung out at Berkeley and came across this awesome car.
I don't draw much vehicles, but this one was waaaaay too
interesting to pass up.
Sketch done during dinner with friends.
Here's a layout sketch done for a short story written by my friend Ranier. Nothing solid yet, but hopefully this could turn into a comic book some day. This panel was for the opening scene....(can't say much yet) but it definitely has a zombie-ish feel.

Post-it

I recently joined a blog group called, "The Post-it Project". Started by the talented Andy Ristaino, he originally created this blog to share his doodles made at work. Now others can join in on the fun. Don't let those doodles go to waste!

A huge "Thank You" to those that took the time to
create and to send cards/e-cards over the holidays!

I've been TAGGED by 2 awesome artists:

Erwin Haya, aka "OneSickIndividual"
and
Debra Chow, aka "Flaring Nostrils"

1) Many have noticed I use watercolors a lot in my travel sketches and art work. I practically take my Winsor Newton watercolor travel set everywhere I go. However, I didn't always like this medium - I actually got a "D+" in my watercolor class in College!

2) I've already mentioned in previous posts that I'm a big Star Wars nerd, and as a kid I've always wanted to meet George Lucas. Of all places, I met him for the first time at a Borders Bookstore. I was super nervous and really didn't want to bother him (LIAR!!!), but he was kind enough to sign a Star Wars: Episode III (making of) book for me.

3) I owned two Takara's Kronoform robot watches when I was a kid. Why two? I broke my first one and requested another one for my birthday. Did anyone else own one of these? (sound of crickets). Click here for commercial.

4) I wish I was a good chef. I tend to overcook my meals. Probably the reason why I favor thin crust pizza.

5) I've never finished filling up a single sketchbook. I tend to hop around different sizes. But...I'm 14 pages away from filling up my Fabriano Classic Artist's Journal (3 years in the making).

6) One day I will own a Cintiq or a snazzy Axiotron Modbook.

7) I hate doing bills!

(Exhaling) That took some effort to write up 7 silly facts about myself?! Now for the best part....tagging 7-9 other creative individuals. Alrighty....Let's keep the mo-jo flowing into the new year....drum roll please.

1.) Shou "life/shou" (USA)
2.) Bogar Chancay "Obramia" (Ecuador)
3.) John Hoffman "MonkeyFeather" (USA)
4.) Christina Dee (Canada)
5.) Willie Barronet "Rrramone" (USA)
6.) Pete Scully (USA)
7.) Nathan Baird "Labsquad" (USA)
8.) John Deckert (USA)
9.) AG "Preaque Art" (Singapore)

Quick lunch break sketch by the marina. It started raining and hailing.

Quick digital doodle inspired by those biker gangs in "Akira". I decided to keep the palette to 3 tones with minimal details to keep the sketch loose and spontaneous.
