Cousin’s Sketch Series- Part 2

In the series I am working on for all my younger cousins, this sketch (scanned in progress, not shown finished here) was done for my little cousin Sofie.  She loves rivers, streams, waterfalls and cool hidden natural places.  This composite sketch was done using The Art of Pocahontas as inspiration, its a large sketch…11×17, so I scanned it in 2 parts.  I have 6 more sketches to go in the “Cousin’s series”, each one gets a sketch for their birthday this year 🙂

SF Zoo Sketch Crawl- Review

We wanted to share with everyone the wonderful work that everyone that came out on June 14 @ the SF Zoo.   Sketching animals that are moving around, at a pretty good distance can be quite a challenge…but so many people did such fantastic work! Also, check out the photos that our 2 wonderful photographers shot all throughout the day!  Thanks again all, and please share it with every person on this big happy planet you know!

Oh, before I forget….would anyone be interested in getting this work in a MINI BOOK form?

Who didnt get a copy of our first SKETCH BOOK?  Hit us up, we will hook you up with one!  They turned out awesome Jon!

Maker Faire- San Mateo, Ca

Sketched these out while working over at the Maker Faire last weekend.  Love the Maker Faire, its like a steam/cyberpunk party mixed with a circus!  This was the 4th year I have gone/worked at the Maker Faire, and it was a lot of fun this year!

WHAMMY! Detective Comics

I recently have been flipping through a stash of old school comic books and came across some really inspirational artwork.  Silver-age comics are so dope, all “pre-steriods” comic book heros/villians, pretty simple yet effective art work and really story driven. Oh, first Blue bic ballpoint, then indigo blue verithn, then depth with indigo blue prisma.    Enjoy!

Sketched this guy on this crazy old school HP transparencey/ film type paper, that Jon and I picked up from the archives of SJSU ID.  Sweet stuff!  I used prismacolor pencils and Ad Markers on the back of it, to control the pencil/linework on one side, and marker/color on the other.
