Not-So-Daily Sketch: BINGO!!!!

Life's about the little victories.

Oh, and a fun fact about the blog, if you google "red bull billboard" I'm the third link that comes up. Just let that sink in....

Not-So-Daily Sketch: Bad Breath

So, I took the weekend off...but now I'm back for more.
I have a micron pen that's just about out of ink. I was going to pitch it, but then I discovered what a dirty, sketchy look it could give. That somehow lead to this.

Never eat onions.

Not-So-Daily Sketch: Explorers

Every ten years, Wattbutts gather in the steaming, stinking swamps of Gutterford, Louisiana (the Louisiana on some distant planet, clearly) to mate. People come from far and wide to watch the greens mix with the blues and listen to weird little chirps of delight.

See you in two days for more nonsense.

Not-So-Daily Sketch: Coffee Girl

This is probably the most girly thing I've ever created. I like to think that the bee's make it entertaining enough though. Lord knows they wanna get at that flower.

Originally, the girl's baret was going to be raspberry colored (like the flower) but I'm pretty sure a Prince reference like that would have been grounds to shut down the blog and re-examine my life.

Not-So-Daily Sketch: The Jump To Nonprofit

So this one is actually a few months old, but if you haven't seen it, it's new to you. This was done as an illustration for The Darden Report which is a semi annual magazine sent out to the alumni of University of Virginia's Darden School of Business. The article I worked with was about people (such as Darden alumni) bringing their experience and knowledge of business to the world of non-profit.

Originally, the drawing was much more grayed out and a bit darker. Thankfully, the Darden folk pushed for this to go brighter and more colorful which lead to it looking a lot better.

This issue of the mag was the first to be published after what seems to be a pretty massive overhaul of the publication so I'm pretty excited that I could have been a part of the rebirth of a magazine. To view an electronic copy of the magazine, go HERE.

Not-So-Daily Sketch: Mop-topus

It's not midnight yet, so this one still counts.

This started out as a doodle I really liked. Now its just a colored sketch that I'm pretty meh about. I'm pretty sure this somehow spawned from the octopus that gets thrown out into hockey rinks for...whatever reason...and he's being cleaned-up by a space beast (made as much sense as anything else). Ideally I'll churn something more interesting out for saturday.

Not-So-Daily Sketch: Punk Monkey (Back from the dead)

Summer is half done ladies and gents and I have asked far too much of her. 40 hours a week in a cubicle, reading, and an attempt at a social life leaves so very little time for art. Clearly, this needs to change. So for the next few weeks, I'm going to lower myself into an abandoned well in the country and do nothing but make art, chug mountain dew and listen to some zeppelin. Long story short, I'm going to start putting up new pieces on here every other day. How long will this last? Well I guess it will last until I become wildly unhealthy or I get bored...

I'm putting my money on two weeks.

Oh yeah....and here's a monkey who gets what the clash was really about (I assume finding casbahs and then rocking them). See you in two days!
