Using a lot of Crayola lately, these were all done at work, some of them while I was on break…
This next one has fancy brush pen lines by Mel Tingdahl, with crayons by me. Rockin’ Marceline collabo of doom!
Also just finished a bunch of freelance projects that will be getting printed soon. Look at them!
I recently noticed that I have an abundance of markers, and that it was long overdue that I sort through my bins, and trash the ones that have dried up. While checking them to see if each one still worked, I figured I might as well draw a little bit and kill 2 birds with 1 stone. Now I know the markers I have function, plus they’re all nice and organized into brush pens, sharpies, prismacolors and miscellaneous!

8.5 by 11 scrap paper from work
Scanned into the ol’ Photoshop and completely redid/cleaned up the text. Lately I’ve been getting into the habit of quickly writing things without lifting the pen off the paper, so I ran with that. Also fixed the cheekbone, nose and ear. Never really looked at an ear for reference before, which is kind of weird considering (A.) how old I am, and (B.) how may ears I have probably drawn in that period of time.
Then next, popped over to Illustrator to trace my lines with the pen tool, and flip the fill around. Now you’ve got your original lines, but so much sharper than before, though I guess it’s kind of hard to tell without looking at a larger version of the file.
A couple of old before and after graffiti collaborations with APE, from the past couple months. Both were started on scrap paper and finished using a combination of Photoshop and Illustrator. First one started at work, second one started after APE took home a seacost spotlight award. Good times!
More to come!
A couple people I know asked me for help with tattoo designs, so look at them already! All designs were scanned in as sketches, fixed in Photoshop, vectorized in Illustrator, and then brought back into PS for maximum colorization.
Also a birthday card for someone at work that is simultaneously obsessed with both Betty Boop, and feces. A match made in heaven? Link below in thumbnail form, for people who don’t want to have an up-close look at explosive diarrhea. For the rest of us, click for a bigger version.
Not entirely sure what I’m supposed to do with this piece now, since it’s really kind of a “one time use” deal. Guess I’ll just have to file it away in my portfolio of cartoon characters from the 1930’s shitting themselves.
