Messing aRound with Some Video Game Characters

By on Apr 1, 2024

My wife loves Kirby so I got her a game for Christmas and it got me thinking about round characters.     There is Kirby and Jigglypuff as well as the OG Pac-Man. Man was I obsessed with Pac-Man as a kid. That and Centipede were my two obsessions. I was lousy at Centipede but I could rock a Pac-Man cabinet. When we eventually got it on Atari I spent hours playing it. I watched the cartoon and ate the cereal. I loved that game. I’m a little surprised I haven’t done any drawings based on Pac-Man yet. Some ghosts might be in my future.

  I’ve been exhausted. Physically, mentally and emotionally. It is probably depression. I have a lot going on right now. Work is bananas. My dad’s cancer has come back and I seem to be busy every moment I’m awake. I’ve been running a lot to try and balance the stress but anxiety has been keeping me up at night. I sat down to do some mindless sketching…     It’s been a while since I did a self portrait and I think this one says a lot. I hadn’t really contemplated or processed the things in that initial paragraph until I looked at this drawing and saw the weariness that came through. My warped perception. Weird.

Still Working with the King

By on Sep 20, 2023

  It’s been a minute since I’ve been this excited about drawing. It isn’t the best drawing mind you, but I’m pretty fired up. It’s like reading a good book that you just don’t want to put down. It’s a feeling I’ve missed.     I haven’t had alot of time to work on it but it has still been taking up space in my mind. I keep finding myself going over to my sketchbook occasionally and just taking a quick peek at it.     It’s getting pretty close to completion and I’m already searching for new ideas. I’m kind of thinking it might be Hooty, the Owl House, but maybe The Collector would be good for this kind of treatment. One of the things I’ve been wanting to focus on more is fur. I’ve been spending hours just staring at the dog’s fur trying to figure out the best way of drawing...

All Hail King Clawthorne

By on Sep 12, 2023

  Heh?!? Yeah it’s been a little while. I got a little burnt out and ran a bit low on inspiration. Summer has come to an end and I’m starting to shift gears. We just closed out year two of amazing summers. My kids are getting older and more independent. That allows me more freedom in the summer to shift my hours and ultimately spend more time with them.   Unfortunately, all good things come to an end and school is back in session. The upside is I’ve been thinking more about art and drawing. My youngest and I have been watching Owl House. It’s a fun show. One of the characters, King, shares a voice with the bad guy from Gravity Falls.     He’s a pretty simple character and I had fun knocking this one out. I might try and take the drawing a little further but this is where it stands right now. I did clean it up incase I decide to color it...
