Getting back to drawing on the regular again. And getting back to my more stylized drawings. Feels good. I actually have a sketch blog where I post more drawings HERE.

Because Doing nothing is not an option...

Had some extra blank androids and I wouldn't be me if there wasn't a Yeti android.

Decided to go with the more classic version of my yeti. A whole lot of lines. A whole lot of patience.

DesignerCon...The Aftermath

DesignerCon was a great experience. I was finally able to meet face to face with people I have only ever known though social networking. I had such a blast talking to everyone I was able to get time with and the highlight was being asked to sketch for a few nice people (Sorry to the guy that got the Yeti sketch with no ears). It was such a different experience from last year and I am really excited moving forward. Really hoping there is more opportunities like this in my future.

And speaking of the future. I have an original figure that I am collaborating on with Adam Pratt that is realeasing soon. I had a lot of fun sculpting this guy and I have no doubt Adam is going to kill it. I will have more information soon and some pictures as well.

For now I have some customs, prints, and coasters left. I will have them in my store hopefully next week but if anyone wants to purchase anything here is what I have left.

I will take pictures if the prints this weekend. But don't hesitate to ask if there are any specifically you would like. Thanks again and more updates soon.

Chugging Along

My new business cards arrived today. Decided to go with digitally printed cards this time. My last two cards have been letterpress so it was nice to change it up.

I was a little stressed because the cards were scheduled to arrive two days before DesignerCon and I was using, a service I have never used before. To my surprise and pleasure they arrived about a week and a half early and I am pleased with the quality of the card stock and print. Also I was able to print multiple images at no additional fee.

And here is an update on a pretty elaborate custom I am working on. Not a whole lot of time left so I need to keep working.

More androids. Can't stop myself. Tiny mustaches and dapper suits.

This handsome fellow requires quite a bit of work still.

This guy has been some work and still not entirely sure how I fee about him.
