It won’t stop

So now this sketch card thing has become a mostly daily habit. This is pretty awesome, in my opinion. They’re relatively quick, and I am still finding time for other projects which I’ll post about soon. Here’s my most recent batch:

Sketch card mania

I’ve been steadily doodling since the new year started, and loving it.I did a few more Gravity Falls character sketch cards:

And maybe I was just feeling a little murdery today, but here’s a Red Skull with a smoking gun for you, too:

I’ve also been particularly busy with some freelance work. More on that tomorrow, maybe. Later!

Gravity Falls art: Mabel Pines

My kids and I have finally discovered Gravity Falls. It’s everything I love in a show: humor, mystery, adventure, and a great cast of unforgettable characters. I’ll probably be drawing more of these guys 🙂

#Artsnacks – DuckTales

ducktales

I’ve recently subscribed to Artsnacks – a subscription service that sends you a different mix of art supplies every month, then challenges you to make a piece using them. Wondering what to do with the 5 primary color watercolor pencils I got, and after seeing the teaser for the DuckTales reboot, I scribbled this out. It’s not that great, but it was fun, and I’ve got materials to practice new media & techniques with every month!

Also, I think more than any other animated cartoon, DuckTales has influenced my approach to storytelling profoundly. Most of the cartoons I grew up with (Transformers, TMNT, Thundercats, etc.) all pretty much stuck to the same genre and plot structure. But DuckTales would have an Indiana-Jones style adventure one episode, then switch gears and have everyone time travel back to medeival times, then have superheroes the next episode, then be about a Civil War re-eneactment the next episode. It asked “why would we possibly limit ourselves to one type of story?! Let’s just have fun.” This is the philosophy I intend to adhere to as I take up Cooties again soon.

And yeah, this teaser is literally a tease, but it worked on me…
