A Monster Sketchpage

This page dates back a year or so..there's a date of 4-20-08 in the bottom left, but I think that was just for the red pencil demon dude in the middle of the page (later inked)...the rest of the blue pencil drawings are more recent.

Merry Bloody Christmas!

Maybe this should have waited 'til the appropriate time to post, but what the hell..came across it while looking for some cupcake illos in an old folder from my days at Saramax. This was done sometime in 2008 (even though it's got a 2009 date on it).  I was really just doing regular cute gingerbread girls, but felt like tweaking it a bit.

Keeping Busy

Hey folks - I know it's been some time since I've updated  the blog. I hope to get back into the swing of things and keep it a bit more current. Not too much this time, just a couple of recent sketches done inside the Mosnters sketchbook.

I've been doing a lot of drawing lately at a job out in Clifton, New Jersey, doing pencil sketches of icons that will eventually be turned into dimensional stickers. I was never told not to, and I never signed anything, but I'm going to refrain from posting those sketches for the time being. I've done everything from cowboy stuff, to motorcycles, baby themes and camping.  If all goes according to plan, there should be around 120 different 'sku's (sheets of icon stickers), with each sku containing anywhere from 8-12 icons, so it's a lot of drawings. It's been a lot of fun and I've been putting pencil to paper seven hours a day, so I think it's helping my drawing skills, at least for realistic stuff. Hopefully not too far down the line, I'll post some of it.  At the moment someone else is doing the vector art from my sketches, but I'll also be doing some of the vectors myself.

In other news, I'll be returning to the convention circuit (lol), as I'll have a table with my buddy Dan 'The Caricature King' Springer  at the New York Comic Con in October. I'll have copies of my last sketchbook, some posters, maybe t-shirts and some new art. Hope to see you there!
