I always have this idea of painting on cardboard boxes and never do, so as a result I have a ton of cardboard boxes sitting around my apartment. This weekend, I actually sat down and got to it, and I'm quite pleased with the results. The combination of black and white on brown, is both mellow and high contrast, and carboard has a natural texture and grain to it. It also has a very impermanent and gritty feel, which is another thing I really like. I'm going to have to make point to do this more often.

Here's a monster I created recently. I was playing with shapes and arrived at the shell, and then built the body out of the shell. I don't know if it really works that well as a concept design. The shell is far too large and ungainly for a creature with such spindly limbs. I imagine this creature would merely fall over. Maybe I'll try again later

Gosh, I need to stop drawing so many profile portraits, but they're so much fun.

I made this drawing a few months ago and my crew liked it a lot. I entertained the idea of using it for a Vanguards logo/ T-shirt design, so I thought I'd vector it out and see how it looks cleaned up. Not bad eh? I'm thinking maybe I'll submit this to Threadless and see if it'll sell.
*Please respect my work and don't steal my designs. That's whack. Thanks, -B

Man, drawing all those spines on the tail was a PAIN!

This is my friend Jason. In addition to being one of the most talented musicians I've ever met and having funky hair, he's an extreme sneaker fanatic. One time we told him that we had won a pair of the limited edition Coraline Dunks that Nike released for the movie... And then we handed him an empty shoe box... This is what his face looked like:
Of course we were just kidding and gave him the dunks afterward, but his immediate, involuntary reaction was pretty priceless. A look of abject horror and sadness followed by an aftertaste of "why would you ever do this to me?" Sorry we made you suffer Jason, but the cheap laugh was too good, and besides you have a bajillion shoes anyway.

I figured this one was a good one to start with. Truth be told I have a shit ton of pencil sketches everywhere, in no particular organized fashion and I always thought it would be good if I took some into Photoshop to be painted. I wanted to try a different style of painting than I normally would do. I guess it sort of works? Maybe not. Here's what the original looked like:
Is it a good idea to have a drawing blog? Yea, probably. It's a easy way to quickly showcase work, and it gives incentive to stay productive and draw often. It also makes it seem like I'm actually doing something with my life connected to animation which is nice too.
