Tree concept sketch

Sketchbook artwork
This is a concept I've been working on for a larger painting. It's representative of a place my family visits to escape urbanization and to unplug. Paintings should be reminders of what is important to us. Otherwise why hang it on the wall.

Captain Kirk, MAD TV

Watercolour and grease pencil
on watercolour paper 11 by 10

The next installment of my series at caricaturing  MAD TV characters is Will Sasso parodying William Shatner as Star Trek's Captain Kirk. Very funny. Will Sasso has been a favourite comedian on the show especially when he parodies William Shatner as Captain Kirk. Unlike Lorraine, this caricature proved challenging for several reasons. I posted other sketches to show the process. Stickies are used a lot in my character development. They are indispensable. To truly appreciate this caricature check out these MAD TV clips:

Tapir Studies

Sketchbook drawing 11 by 14

Beginning a new category called ZOO DAYS. These are sketches of animals and other imaginative creations while at my local zoo. I really enjoy zoo days. It reminds me of my animating years and all the time spent studying and researching.

Downton Abbey sketches

Really enjoying the Downton Abbey series. Some drawings from my sketchbook while watching it. Hope to caricature some of the characters as time permits.

Daily Sketch

One of those mornings where I don't want to get out of bed. Thank goodness for my motivational coach alien buddy who helps me find the will and the way.
