For my first official posted sketch, a quick charactercher of a celeberity.

Giant Fishbowl

Here is a really quick sketch of this Giant Ornate Fishbowl, for a story that Jon and I are working on.  Lots of metal guild wrapping around hand formed glass…I envision this being something you could have found 400 years ago at Taj Mahal, full of exotic fish, and surrounded by pillows and women dressed in scarves and robes feeding me grapes and fanning away the heat and….oh, ya, so the Giant Fishbowl…its huge!  giant-fishbowl_small

IDSketching visits Viz Alliance @SJSU

Back when Dom and I were in school we started this after school sketchclub, Viz Alliance…our mission was simple, to get people in our program excited about sketching and to keep at it everyday (its all about the mileage)…we also pulled in the Illustration/Animation cats to get this “Alliance” lifted…we showed the Gnomon workshop videos and brought in professionals in Industrial Design and Illustration to do live sketch demos for us…

This last Thursday, the new Viz Alliance crew (Tony, Jeff, & David) invited the IDSketching guys, John & Spencer to do demos (digital and analog)…and everyone had a blast…Spencer represented the Prismacolor pencils and markers, while John rocked the Wacom using Sketchbook Pro…these super talented cats work @ Astro Studios, and run the best online sketch demo/tutorial site on the net,…make sure to check it out!!!….and thanks again to Tony, Jeff, & David for keeping Viz Alliance going and spreading the word…

Where are the mechs???

Thanks Jon for figuring out the adding members to blog issue.  Pretty complicated stuff.  Thanks for allowing me to be part of this group as well.  I hope to learn and develop my lineweight skills and become up to par with the caliber of sketching here.

old man on deathbed and the anticipating vulture…

Car Guy’s character, the old man, returns…this time on his deathbead, a vulture awaits as gramps is coughing up what looks like his dentures and a feather…i just hope this isn’t the last we see of him…
