So it's been a little while since I've updated, but not because I haven't been busy making more drawrings. I've been doing that, and I've been taking care of that cute baby and doing some freelance storyboarding at a couple of different places on a couple of different projects.
In other news, today is Allison's birthday! Hooray! We are just hanging out at home today, and her freshman year college roommate, Laurie, came to visit. Since it was Laurie's birthday a month and a half ago, we're just having a birthday bonanza.
Anyway, here are a couple of things I've been working on. I've been trying out gouache lately (with mixed results), and it's been a lot of fun.
Here's a snapshot of my little studio space in our apartment:
And here's Lauries cowboy, Big Tex (pre-framing). If I've learned anything from this experience it is this: if all else fails, fill in the background with giant cucumbers and call them cacti.
I painted this teeny thing for Allison, so she can think fondly of her little monkeys when she's at work and we're at home playing. It's a little smaller than 4.5" square.
I dunno why it's so fun to paint small but it is.
More sketches to come soon, when I get a sec away from work!
