It’s my favorite time of the year, I have been on the road just putting miles on the bike and taking stops to sketch. For the month of May I managed to do something for Mermay, a couple of NBA illustrations and of course one for the monthly character design challenge. Some days I want to do thick inker lines and the next day loose pencil styled designs. It’s still hard to decide what “style” I actually am.
I got around to uploading a couple of older illustrations that I did last month. On May the fourth aka Star Wars day I did a quick Luke illustration. One of my fav. music videos in quite sometime is Childish Gambino’s – This is America the afternoon after watching it I stayed up into the early AM to draw it. Besides that here are a couple of lunchtime pencil sketches in my work sketchbook.
The last couple of weeks just trying to fit a couple of sketches on paper or on the iPad just to keep creative. Watching a lot of Into The Badlands such an epic series.
Into The Badlands – sketches
Happy New Year can’t believe 2016 is done and over with. The last week of the year I try to organize a number of projects and scan my drawings into an end of the year folder for the annual sketchbook.
Last year my final sketchbook was 50 pages with 18 full color pages. This year its 83 pages with 18 full color pages. I can’t wait to get the physical hardbound version of this book. It’s nice to actually hold something physical that I made.
Above is the final design for Vol:2
Above is a much earlier concept I was playing with
Still doing some style experiments with Clip Paint Studio. Also getting gloves for the Cintiq screen definitely improved the smooth motions on the screen.

Finally got around to watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I was never a huge Star Wars fan but the art book is really inspiring. Most of my Star Wars sketches have been based on trailer impressions. This is the first batch I have done since actually seeing the new movie.

So the official trailer for Star Wars Episode VII showed up on iTunes this morning in all it’s 1080p glory. I am not a huge Star Wars fan but I definitely am a JJ Abrams fan.
One of my favorite scenes was a character named Daisy on a jet bike coasting along the desert. Figured I would throw my hat in the Star Wars fanart game.
