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!
