Lightning's Expressions

Here are some quick sketches I did of my character Lightning :) I wanted to test out a brush in Photoshop to mimic pencil strokes and shading :) Enjoy!

Just a quick character design I did for fun to test out a new gouache brush I made in Photoshop :) I really like the effect it has! This design is actually based on an earlier sketch I did of humanized versions of thunder and lightning. I'm thinking of developing a story around those two characters just for fun. Enjoy!

Rick and Nolan Sketches

Some late night sketches of Rick and Nolan from my web comic Clean Sweep. Enjoy!

Clean Sweep's New Site

Yep :) Just like Nolan says, my web comic Clean Sweep is back! Here's the new link: I will no longer be updating my blog for Clean Sweep, so be sure to go to this new site for any new pages. Enjoy! (the link on the side of my blog though, is now linked to this new site)

 Some quick sketches of Janice and Nolan from my web comic Clean Sweep.
Some more "blue plasma sticky stuff" drawings :) I also did some thumbs of Rick trying to get out of it for movement. Enjoy!

Let's Go Snowy!

I have officially jumped on The Adventures of Tintin bandwagon :) I am really, REALLY excited to go see this movie! :) I thought it would be fun to draw Tintin and Snowy together since they're an awesome duo. Enjoy!

A Man With a Turnip Head

This was actually for the site hitRECord for a collaboration, where the assignment was to design a character based off of a poem about a man who had a turnip for a head. I thought it would be a fun character design challenge, since it's very unusual. Enjoy! :)

In the Roaring 20s

I wanted to experiment more with time period and costume, so I decided to sketch a woman from the 1920s. I really like the cloche hats they wore back then. :) Enjoy!

When Characters Attack!

I thought it would be fun to address the "blue sticky plasma stuff" that my characters have been getting stuck in :) Originally this idea came into my head when I was really tired one night sketching in my sketchbook, and well, it kind of went from there... Anyways, I wanted to do some funny sketches of me interacting with my un-named new character. Enjoy!

Agent ".........."

Some sketches of a character I'm thinking of including in my web comic :) I wanted to try drawing more character interaction with the plasma-like bio chemical computer protein. Basically it's a concept where you could store data in a living substance. I made it into a "sci-fi" plasma thing. Sorry that it's a little weird.....Anyways enjoy! :)

Drawing I did last night to practice drawing more in my new comic style :) I also wanted to draw another drawing of Nolan and Janice together. Enjoy!

Don't Even

Quick sketch I did to practice drawing in my new comic style :) Rick's singing the song "Sweet Caroline" ;) Enjoy!

Sweet Caroline belongs to Neil Diamond
Clean Sweep belongs to me

Clean Sweep is Coming Again

When I get back to drawing pages for my web comic Clean Sweep, I'm thinking of drawing in this style since it has a retro look to it :) I really like retro style art because of the colors. 

I wanted to sketch a comic page with my character Nolan in it for fun :) This scene isn't really part of the comic, but that can change :) Enjoy!

Back in Action

This is a drawing I actually drew last night and then finished up this morning :) I can't wait to get back to drawing Clean Sweep pages! Nolan will be back in action, soon...soon-ish. Enjoy! :)

(500) Days of Summer

I absolutely love this movie :) For one it has Joseph Gordon-Levitt in it, and also I love the story. Every time I watch it, I want to run around an IKEA. Enjoy!

(500) Days of Summer belongs to Fox Searchlight

The Name's Allan

Quick sketch of my character Allan :) I was inspired by Kevin Dart for the look of this drawing, and I wanted to try using fewer lines to help create a better flow to the design. Enjoy!

Friday Sketches

 This was actually inspired by a drawing I saw on tumblr :)

I actually did Irish dance for a good 8 years before I stopped. This solo dress is based on one of my dresses I competed in, and it was my all time favorite dress because of the colors :) Gotta love the wig, solo dress, poodle socks, and hardshoes :)

 Some really quick figure sketches I did from my imagination.

 These are some drawings of my character Rick as an adult and as a boy. Plus there's a little doodle of him meeting Caroline for the first time when they were kids :)
Another drawing inspired by the song Tokyo by California Wives. I love that song! For this drawing I wanted to try using more muted colors for fun. Enjoy the sketches! :)

In Tokyo

I was inspired by the song Tokyo by California Wives to draw this :) I love how relaxing it is! It reminds me of a lazy winter afternoon. Happy December everyone! Only 24 more days to go until Christmas! Enjoy :)
