Illustrations Comics Sketches

Star Wars: Episode IV “A New Hope” Sketches.

I now regret coloring Chewbacca green.

Drawings from “Catch Me If You Can”

I’m teaching Adobe Illustrator’s pen tool in my class today. This is the sketch that they will trace for the in class assignment.
The drawing is a simplified version of Robot, a character from some easy-reader books I illustrated a few years ago.
When I taught the Cafe Sketch class this summer, we had some weather issues and were forced to draw from videos and movies inside occasionally. These drawings were from a stunt-dog video that one of the students showed.

Sketches from the movie, “Willow”.

The summer I was going into 5th grade, I was obsessed with this movie. It was basically my live-action Lord of the Rings movie before a decent live-action Lord of the Rings movie was made.

I still love so much from this. My favorite lines: “Out of the way, PECK!” and “You ARE great!”

Another unused sketch from the dream job.
For those who want to know, the job is illustrating some monster characters for a kids card game. Pretty much my dream come true.

Sketches from the Buster Keaton movie, “Three Ages”

I really like numbers 13, 14, 15 and 52.

Did a little drawing in the Cafe Sketch class I’m teaching. We are having a critique today so I decided to post mine to be critiqued as well.
These were taken from various films: “Three Ages” staring Buster Keaton, “The Return of the King”, “Willow”, “Catch Me If You Can” and some video of a dog doing crazy tricks.
The Gollum ones are kind of a cheat because we paused the movie on that shot.
Sketch for my current children’s book project. The text references some classic children’s picture books.
Do you know what books these refer to?
Drew this little guy yesterday. I’m diggin’ him.
I’m going to be out in a bit of wilderness for the next few days, sorry I won’t have an update tomorrow.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Working on a print to bring to Kids Read Comics this Saturday in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

It’s a free event, so come on down and see me at table #17, there’s going to be some great guests!

(Just a note, I can only be there on Saturday, but the event is on Sunday as well, so don’t be afraid to come then.)

Drew this yesterday also. It doesn’t feel finished quite yet. Maybe her hair needs to be black?
Don’t think I ever posted this page from my last sketchbook.
Another page from the children’s book I’m working on. Those 2 hippos are ready to visit my awesome local library.
