Some more daily sketchbook drawings. I've been busy, but its a nice change of pace to do one of these during a break. I've been think of trying out some different pens even though I like how the brush pen makes me slow down and think through the drawing.

I've been having fun drawing a lot of cars these past few weeks for work and freelance. It is one of those rare coincidences where get to do what you enjoy. I'm a big fan of Back to the Future and have been trying to sneak the car into one of these projects. I did a few sketches for fun and had the time to paint one up.

One of my big new year's resolutions I made was "to do more art." I kind of split that into a few different little goals inside of that to make it easier to keep doing. One was to post weekly on my blog and one of the others was to do a sketch a day. I've been carrying a small moleskine notebook in my pocket for the past few years to keep lists, ideas, and notes. This year I started actually sketching in them. I've filled three since the start of this year and been thinking of starting a new blog to hold all those sketches. Here's a few that I scanned.

It's been a rough week. I've been fighting being sick and haven't had the energy to do much of anything. Here is some work I had sitting on my hard drive. Bee Movie was my second project at Dreamworks. I'm not sure how many people remember the movie, but it was a project produced in cooperation with Jerry Seinfeld. I didn't get the opportunity to do much artwork due to how the art department was run and the assignments I was given. I spent much of my time doing graphic design for objects populating the world - posters, signs, food packaging, street signs. Here are the few things I actually got to design/draw.
