 Just a recent update of what I've been up too in my internet absence lately. 
Hopefully I'll be posting much regularly now that my bill-paying job is down to part-time hours. Huzzah!


Caricatures, Caricatures, Oh My!

These past holidays I have finally been able to try my hand at doing digital caricatures! While they were great fun and you cannot beat the time you get I think I still prefer traditional applications for doing caricature better. 

But hey, get a caricature today! Email for more information.

Drawing Pennies!

I also got the unique opportunity to do two 16 by 20 caricature illustrations recently on the topic of one of my favorite things, hockey! The Sidney Crosby caricature pictured below was created as a secret Santa gift for a co-worker.

The cat is still convinced he created it.
  The second image was one created as a gift for Pittsburgh Penguins' Evgeni Malkin which I had the opportunity to present to him during a signing at the Robinson Mall! I'm not too sure he has ever seen a caricature before but I will also be giddy about his heavily accented comment of "Wow, big lips!" It was perfect haha.

Complete with blurry picture of him holding it! Twas a frenzied moment indeed.
The man had over 200 people in line to get through in an hour 1/2 still.

Doodle Dobie

Further experimentation on coloring methods for quick sketches. I've been trying to push my designs to be more dynamic as well. Looking forward to doing more in this style.

Kickin' It

Playing with Paint Tool Sai for something other than lineart for once. I dig it. You, beach bum?

Pennsylvania needs a legitimate beach & I'll take my sunshine with a little Corona.

Throwback Thursday Sketchbombing!

Hello any and all who are interested!


Throughout my my 3+ years at the Art Institute, as well as the past few months of nearly non-stop sketching, I've accumulated almost 9 sketchbooks of varying sizes filled with drawings I'm still very much attached too. With delusional hopes of possibly painting them someday, I've been struggling to find a way to upload them due to the sheer abundance..... well I have finally found a way!

Welcome - Throwback Thursday Sketchbombs! From this week on I will be uploading a post of unknown size focusing on sketches! Time permitting I would like to include a painted version of one or more of the sketches in the bomb but at the very least my goal is for them to see the light of day.... errrr the light of the interwebs anyway.


I have such an undeniably strong love for the process, for the roughs, for the loose action of sketches and especially pencil tests! I think if anything they deserve more or equal attention that the final product receives. So here is to my love of sketch and how much one can realize they are learning by sticking with them everyday. Here's to the characters that otherwise would never leave the graphite covered pages. Hopefully if anyone see's this post it can spark some inspiration toward their own Throwback Thursdays or variations of them so that their sketches can live as well :)
