Pinup for Kyle

One of my students has been working on a comic for Cartooning class in which he has a character who looks very much like me (a lot of them seem to do this for some reason). Anyway, one of our assignments was to work on pinup art and how it is not specifically cheesecake but really just one artists take on another artists character. So, long story short my student Kyle asked me to make a pinup of his two main characters and here is the result. Since the character based on myself is the “sidekick” to the main one I decided to make him the overzealous, gung-ho, annoying type.

Ferdinand the Bull

Here is the latest illustration in my long history of working with Stages Repertory Theatre's kid programming. This spring they are putting on a production of Ferdinand the Bull so I was glad to help. I've been experimenting a lot more with different brushes and textures, and I also decided to just go with the tight pencil this time instead of inking it for a change (I very rarely do that).

Combo Supreme Please!

This little mash-up is for the Austin Sketch Squad gang which I hope and plan on being a little more regular contributing to, especially now that school is almost out. I missed a few themes so to catch up I combined "Gangster", "Disguise", "Robot" and "It Came From Outer Space". I actually think it's fun when I combine themes like that, maybe we should randomly combine topics every time.
