The draft so far…


This is super rough, and there is a lot to fix, but I wanted to post what I am working on so far in case anyone had suggestions… It’s also cut-off a bit…

I am actually on I-Chat with my twin as I post this asking her for feedback.
Josh told me about another site where you can link all your portfolios, blogs, websites, etc. for illustrators.  It is Illustration Mundo.  Click on the title of this blog to peruse…
I STILL intend to link more people on my blog, but just haven’t really gotten around to it… I think it should be much more interesting once I have a bit more going on with this blog.  I believe there’s also a way to get my blog streaming on my website, but I still haven’t quite figured that out.  I’m sure there will be a day when I can sit down and re-vamp what I have so it is a bit more fun and everything is properly linked.
Anyway, tomorrow is Friday and Christine is visiting, so I will be waiting on that painting… which is probably good… I need that time to “sleep on it” so that I don’t rush anything… Not to mention how good ideas always seem to hit me in my sleep!
Man, I’m delirious… but nothing compared to Josh.  He almost fell over today while we were getting dinner from working 48 hours straight- zero sleep.  I think “all nighters” are a lot harder to pull.  Poor man.  But he has some new pieces up on threadless now!  If you click on his name under my links it should have all sorts of fun stuff that he’s been doing…
Well, good night world.  Sleep well.  “Dream of large women.”
(If you don’t know where that quote is from, I am sorry).

  1. Well for me is a perfect rough and when will be finished will be fantaticLove it

  2. This one got the wheels turning. I have a story marinating.He clearly said, "to blave."

  3. I think I may have double posted. It is my computer's never ending quest to foil my plans of internet domination.

  4. I think this looks great – I love the perspective in your artwork and your characters are wonderful. I was wondering if the figure with the umbrella in the back should be a little smaller to add to the nice feeling of depth that you have. Other than that, I think it is going to be luverly :)

  5. thanks for all the great feedback!!!I will be fine-tuning this so I reeeally appreciate the advice and friendly words!!:)thanks for checking it out!

  8. this looks like it will be a great piece~ i like the iconic 'densen'–guides the eye around all things goin' on :]

  9. Fantastic sketch, and you nailed the perspective too, very nice! Hey, did you do a painting of a girl riding an elephant for a SCBWI contest? Sorry if it wasn't you, but I thought maybe…? I loved that painting!
