Use the force…

Hello all,

Its literally been light years since our last post.   With the recent formation of a workshop/art studio, I now have some space to reconnect to the work I love.  Last night I was lucky enough to go to my brother Joey’s art show @ Backspace Retail in Sonora, Ca.  Seeing him create beautiful work and share it with friends, family, strangers off the street..gave me that feeling of reconnecting with the art roots inside me.  So naturally I went straight one of my greatest sources of inspiration…star wars and yoda! Check out the step by step process I took to create a few pieces that are now hanging up in the workshop!  Enjoy!

Draw Something!!!

We here at lineweights are addicted to the Draw Something App!

Its been so amazing watching an App that requires good communication and quick sketching skills take off like Draw Something has (what an inspiration! everyone around the world is drawing and props to OMGPOP for turning pictionary into a huge social gaming app)

Anyhow wanted to share some of our own Draw Something sketches (all on the iPhone version)…enjoy and hopefully u can guess what we are sketching!

Felix the Cat

Happy Birthday dad!  My dad sketched this really cute felix the cat that we used to have floating around the house when my brother and I were kids (ill have to try to find it).  I always loved this sketch, because MY DAD drew it and it looked so much like the real Felix!  He always sketched cute little characters like this and im positive that his influence (my moms too) is what lead my brother and I to art.  Felix is a totally under rated cartoon character and influenced other characters from the early days of animation till today!

I sketched these out as a present for my dad for his birthday!  Hope you like it dad!

Enjoy! 🙂


H is for Hippo on a Hayabusa

I just ordered my Miachael Yamada Zoom Zoo ABC’s and can’t wait to get them …this is a must buy!

…for the letter “H“, Michael drew a Hedgehog in his racer…but Megan Hohlfeld wanted a Hippo on a Hayabusa, so I drew her one!

A fun sketch to start off my new Moleskine…thanks Megan

Daily Faces

meeting sketch…

Happy Mikulás!

Happy Mikulás baba!  I just wanted to share with you today on Hungarian Mikulás a happy evening!

Mikulás is similar to a Santa Clause like figure, but he represent Saint Nicholas

Traditionally on Mikulas children put out their freshly cleaned boot on the window sill waiting for him to come by in the night and fill their boots with treats.  Good kids get things like sweets, nuts fruit, chocolate, while the bad kids get coal, switches and wooden spoons! This year Zsuzsa gets both 🙂

Boldog Mikulás! (happy mikulas)



sketching faceoff!

Megan asked me to sketch the design team @ work and this is the result…I had to remove the sketch of myself cuz everyone was making fun of me saying i look like a Mexican game show host…whatever.

Anyhow, i’ve been trying to do a “sketch a face-a-day” project and should post them, but I know some people will request that i take em down…we will see


iPad sketching

Sketching on the iPad…gotta keep on practicing!

Monster mania…

Watched human centipede the other night…decided to take a different route…

Saw this dude at target the other night…

Jr Lineweights

Kei, my god daughter, is really into drawing monsters these days…probably from all the ghost and monster stories i tell her…

So she drew for me (on my iPad) a monster…i loved it so much i did my own version of this multi eyed bearded with a curly mustache monster….hope you like it Kei!

Megan colored him for me…this guy was a tag team effort!
