Quick Study

Here's a 15 minute study I did to loosen up.  It's crazy how stuff like this helps.  Kinda like warming up before playing basket ball (though, I will admit I paint better than I can play ball).

Few Updates

Just made a few updates to my site.  Not a major change, but a few newer projects and a hint at my picture book coming out for Christmas. Yeah!

The last few months have been super busy.  One of the books I finished up and am excited about is Pingo .  I teamed up with Brandon Mull on this one.  It's a funny story about a boy who tries to ditch is imaginary friend as he gets older.  However, this imaginary friend won't go quietly. 

I think it releases in August.  Here's a link to pre-order. :)

Last week the awesome people at Deseret Book sent over the proofs.  It's always fun to see this stage of whole process. 

I'll post some of the spreads as it gets closer to the release date.

Sketching Around

Here is a little piece I sketched up while trying to break in a new Photoshop brush.  Later!

Bedroom Walls

Back in High School I loved to make images, and nothing has changed.  I asked my parents if I could spray paint my bedroom.  To my surprise they said "yes."  I just about passed out from the fumes.

I did hundreds of drawings at this little table sitting on two kiddy chairs stacked on top of each other.  It's crazy to see what can happen in ten years. 

I got my hands on a airbrush and went to town.

Just a look at one of the Chapter Heads I did for the 4th Fablehaven book.
