Sample page - Online call for artists

I did up this sample page after hearing about a pretty well-known writer seeking a pretty unknown artist to work on a kid-friendly project with a "major publisher". Thought I would throw my hat in the ring -- and get to draw Mercury the Monkey again!

Illustration Friday: Adrift

This weeks subject over at Illustration Friday was: adrift. I created Mercury Monkey for our website a while back and he keeps wanting to star in illustrations like this. Space Monkeys in Space!!! Here he is somewhere in the cosmos, navigating through cheese-like asteroids on the stellar Mississippi!

Illustration Friday: muddy

This weeks subject over at Illustration Friday is: muddy. I know we all have Olympic fever by now, and I know we are all worried that they have enough snow up there in Vancouver for all of the outdoor events! Those Canucks have great healthcare, but no snow for the Winter Olympics? C'mon! I hope conditions don't get as poor as this...

CoCo Super Bowl

I felt like Conan missed out again by not being in that Late Show commercial! Maybe this illustration (and the $40 million settlement) will make him feel better...
He should consider developing and marketing that orange CoCo Cola! Trying out more of that wash-style coloring.

Illustration Friday!

I finally posted my very first offering to Illustration Friday, as all true and responsible illustrators are supposed to do! This weeks theme was: focus. A little ironic, since that doesn't seem to be one of my strong suits. A little ironic. Can something be a little ironic? Little Ironic. Sounds like a tiny robot that keeps your slacks wrinkle-free.

Let's get poppin'!

Here we go with this bloggin' thing!

This is an illo I did for a little contest last week over at Super Punch. Sort of a style exploration, some work to do on it still, but I liked how things are going!
