What do you do when you have inherited tiny tubes of fabric paint that are drying out and cluttering up your desk? 

Hostile Takeover

March 3, 2017

I don’t know what possessed me, but I came up with this idea of having an office themed team of super villains. I’ve been working on developing a new style for drawing characters in Jack-O’s universe so I applied it to these goons.

Teams are always fun: creating a set of diverse but complementary power sets and personalities. The real question is, what’s  their motivation? I find the ever popular “total world domination” to be overdramatic. That sounds like a lot of work to me. What else could these guys want?

It’s been awhile since I played in AI but I was inspired by some illustrations to noodle around.

Experiments with clay slab construction

December 31, 2015

just doodling with clay. The egg shape was created by turning a large plastic Easter egg into a slump mold then joining the two dried halves together using clay slip. Without a kiln I’ll let these air dry and then paint them.

Frontispiece Detail

July 4, 2015

This initially started out as a design for the “good book rescue” post. I did a thumbnail, a slightly more detailed sketch, the first book cover, and liked it so much, I decided to continue to improve it for the “paper back to hardcover” project.

I cut a piece from a Chipotle bag. I like the brown color of the paper and it’s thickness lends itself to collage work on covers when I’m layering. The initial drawing was in pencil with slightly send out Indian ink and silver paint for the decorative parts. Prisma color pencils that is the paint colors that gave it a nice Jewel-like pop.

Vector brush lettering

November 8, 2014

I was looking through the artwork of J. Otto Seibold. He uses a vector program of some kind to create really nifty organic illustrations. These brushes I made in illustrator reminded me of his style. I drew the various letter forms and applied the brushes to them.

Another book child sent into the world

August 30, 2014

I have whipped out a few sketch books for young artistic friends that have stopped by the house. This one probably took me 3-4 hours from start to finish. Most of the materials I used were recycled and repurposed: folders, corrugated cardboard , peeled surface of boxes, old wallpaper, scraps of material.
